  1. CUSTOM TOOL HOLDERS •

    Jan 6, 2013 As a followup to the Tool Storage Cabinet, I thought Iʻd share what I learned about making custom tool holders. Most of the following pictures show the holder on the left and the tool in the holder on the right. If you want you can save photos to your computer for future reference...
  2. Hammer Holder based on Tab Left design on YT

    If you want to see how he made it, here's the link. Mine didn't turn out as well but it works.
  3. Lathe Cart

    I finish up my lathe cart - no plans just a bit of seat of the pants engineering. More detail on my blog http://lumberjocks.com/Bluenote38/blog/127145
  4. Router Cabinet

    About a month ago I posted the router table top and fence I made. Well, this week I finally finished the base cabinet, and I couldn't be more happy with it. I made the cabinet out of 3/4 plywood and assembled with pocket screws. The drawers are made of 1/2 plywood, with the 2 big bottom drawers...
  5. Tool Wall

    Over the week before July 4th my company shuts down, so I had a good part of the week in the shop. I decided I needed to organize my shop. I have been acquiring more and more hand tools lately and really didn't have a way to store them. I've been keep them in their boxes or just stacked on my...
  6. French Cleat Storage Wall

    Over the past year or so I have been gradually custom building my French clear storage wall. It is mostly comprised of 3/4 inch birch plywood. I attached the plywood strips to each wall using two, 2 inch screws per wall stud. I spaced each strip about 5 inches apart. Each strip has a 45 degree...
  7. Captain's beds

    I made two of these captains beds for our twin daughters. That was years ago and the girls are in college now. The problem is neither girl will allow us to get rid of the beds so we are stuck storing them until "someday" when they want to use them with their own kids. Each bed has 14 drawers...
  8. Turner's Easel

    Working in a small shop necessitates space conservation and tooling mobility. Since acquiring a lathe last July, the shop was adjusted to accommodate the machine along with an array of accessories. A solution to the accumulation of lathe tools required some thought. How to provide ease of use...
  9. Pegboard Tool Storage Epiphany #2: Backsaw Till.

    Backsaws are like rabbits (the furry kind), they multiply fast. And when placed on a pegboard, they take up a lot of space. So I've been contemplating a saw till for a while. Rather than take on the whole, every-saw-I've-got saw till, I decided to get some till experience under my belt first...
  10. Tool/Small Parts/Clamps/ workshop cart

    Came up with this as a small parts tray storage, tool storage, clamp rack, etc. all-in-one-cart. The drawers holds my nail guns and other small items I want to keep out of the dust. Tool tower is "H" shaped and is on a lazy Susan bearing for quick access. Top of tool tower is a removable tray...
  11. French Cleat Clamp Rack

    I built a new addition to the tool wall a few days ago! If you would like to see how I built it or a tour of my French cleat tool walls check out my video! Thanks. View on YouTube
  12. Too Easy Drill Bit Holder..Tilted

    Time to build this one morning. Raid the scrap pile yes. Design well it actually took me awhile since I was stuck on a tray idea in the tool chest drawer or a standing rack I might move. I had 3 sets I put together and counted over 40 bits in steel and titanium…don't ask but it grew with my...
  13. Tool Armoire

    I got tired of the everything being in boxes and hiding (or not fitting) in the lockers you see in this picture. So I was planning a tool cabinet. A fellow lumber jock was joking around and suggested a "tool armoire" and I figured, "why not"? This is built on a 2X4 frame to support the...
  14. Storage for the "Workbench of Many Colors"

    I consider myself to be a novice woodworker. I am in the process of improving my skills and like to try new techniques when I build a project. Some of you may remember my project; the "Workbench of Many Colors". That turned out to be a great project and I use it practically every day. In...
  15. DRILL PRESS ACCESSORIES HOLDER •

    May 2, 2013 As a followup to my previous posting of Dust Collection for Drill Press, I thought I'd share the other side of the mounting arm. This arm holds drill press accessories. Pic 1-View of both dust collection and accessories. Pic 2-Side one of accessory board holds miscellaneous drill...
  16. MONSTER MODULAR MOBILE TOOL TOWER •

    May 2, 2013 Been busy doing more organizing in the shop. This project eliminates all the tool cases that tools come in and places them on one BIG mobile customized tool tower. (Scroll down to see all the detailed pictures and descriptions) Please let me know if there is too much detail (all...
  17. modular tool storage

    Tight little tool storage. ~10" tall top and ~12" tall bottom shelf. ~30" Wide, the magic number to be easily moveable/ modular. On french cleat. You can see my new clamp storage also. Originally I had all the clamp support boards spaced out evenly it on one board ~30" (posted many times on...
  18. Turning Tool Holder

    I needed a place to put my turning tools, but hanging something on the wall wasn't a good option. My lathe (HF 34706) is on a mobile base and gets moved around vs a dedicated space. I finally came up with this lathe mounted holder that protects the tool tips and people. It's mounted so that...
  19. Stow-and-Go Sharpening box with up-cycled porch boards

    Another project from up-cycled southern yellow pine salvaged from my front porch. My version of Bob Van ********************'s "Stow-and-Go" Sharpening Box that was featured in FWW's #254 (June 2016). The lid/planing surface is also a piece of up-cycled material pulled from the dumpster of a California...
  20. Removable Wall Hanging Chisel Rack

    I recently built myself a rack to hang my chisels on the wall. It has a blade guard at the bottom to prevent me hitting the sharp edges by accident and it can unhook from the wall to carry it to my bench. The blade guard then provides quite a wide base to keep it upright. It hangs on the wall...
