  1. French Cleat Drill bit Storage

    This week, I built a storage rack for most of my drill bits. I even left a little room for future bits. Using the French cleat system, it is mounted to the wall. If you are interested in seeing the build on video check out the links below. Thanks for supporting my projects! View on YouTube...
  2. Ryobi disorganised organisation.

    Boys and Girls, While I have often been accused of upper crust toolery, I can sometimes see past my 1 i'd Fe$tool extravagance and conceded to invest in some bargain basement Ryobi batteries. Unfortunately only Ryobi tools fit those batteries so there was a need to expand my Ryobi empire...
  3. Basic Shop Drawers

    I recently built a new miter saw station out of 2×4s. I left the bottoms open with the intention of adding different storage options underneath and I just finished the first step: building a set of simple drawers under the drill press module so I can store all my bits and various accessories. I...
  4. Miter Station Storage Upgrades

    I built a simple 2×4 modular miter saw station last year with an extension wing and an integrated T-track for a sliding stop block. I left the underside of the station open at the time, until I could figure out what type of storage I wanted underneath. In my latest video, I added a few storage...
  5. Middle Tool Chest Riser

    A long time ago I went looking for a middle tool chest riser for my short Husky toolchest, but I couldn't find one. I decided to build my own. After building the basic "box" the project stalled for about a year and filled up with junk. This January I got around to building the drawers and...
  6. Rusty tools cleanup kit

    When I went to clean up the hand-cranked grinder Tony sent me, I discovered that the things I need for cleaning up old rusty tools were scattered all over the shop. I decided it was a good time to organize them a bit. First up was building a box from scraps. It's a dovetailed pine box built...
  7. Tool Storage

    After many years of using an abusing my tools by throwing them in dresser drawers, I decided enough was enough. I built this 6ft x 2ft x 34in storage unit to house all my tools and then some. The name of the game was space utilization. My goal here was to create drawers that would not become...
  8. Tool cart, inspired by Adam Savage

    Hello fellow woodworkers! I haven't been here for a while, so I thought, it's time to post a little project. Storing tools in boxes, which contain mostly air, consumes a lot of space. And e.g. looking for the right wrench can be a pita. Space saving storage and the accessibility are, what...
  9. Top Chest for a Snap-on Tool Cabinet

    I built this tool cabinet for my son, he works in a heavy truck body shop. He was looking for something to raise the height of the hutch. ( It sat to low and so when you stood in front of it you looked at the top edge of the hutch ) As well he was looking for more storage for tools, small...
  10. 180 Gallon Aquarium

    This has been my biggest project. From a woodworking perspective, it was not overly difficult, but fairly large. I'm very happy with how it all turned out, but would do a few minor things different in the future. I have a very detailed build of this entire project that can be viewed HERE.
  11. Inspired Nakashima end table.

    While out hunting I came across some log trimmings I initially was going to use for firewood. George Nakashima's work has inspired me a lot of late and very happy with my latest end table. The top is plantation pine and the base is Blue Atlas Cedar
  12. Flip Top Tool Storage

    Here I have my flip top tool station. Everything came out great except the slots in the flop top for the eye'd bolts. I had to get them in and it looks pretty rough but hey it is shop furniture. There is a 1 3/8" dowel going through the flip top, it rests in corresponding slots in the sides...
  13. Tool Cabinet from Fine Woodworking

    A year or two ago I hung up some of my general purpose tools (pliers, wrenches, screw drivers, etc…) on the wall. It made a huge difference in my shop. I was no longer using my adjustable wrench or pliers when I should be using a wrench because now the wrench was accessible. My shop was...
  14. Router table Fence

    I am in the process of purchasing a router lift. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars for a router table and fence, I thought it would be fun to use the existing extension table on my table saw and make my own fence. I used 1×6 oak board, planed and jointed it so it would be true and...
  15. Shop Improvements#3: Storage Cabinet

    This wall cabinet is from WOOD Magazine. I got the plans out of "Best-Ever Home Shop Ideas 2009". It probably appeared in a regular issue of the magazine at some point, but I don't know when. If you're looking for the plans on their website, I think they call it a "Tool Cabinet". It's 32...
  16. Cherry hand tool cabinet

    I decided to build this case not only to store my tools somewhere safe but to practice lots of different techniques. The cabinet is all solid cherry except for the back (1/2" cherry ply) and the drawer bottoms (1/4" cherry ply). The case and door frame are dovetailed. All of the shelves in...
  17. Racking up Bench Appliances—How to store bulky appliances in a small space

    It seems that wood appliances are to hand-tool users what jigs are to power-tool users. And they multiply like little bunny rabbits. I have three so far, two of which I use all the time. My current shooting board (A1 above) gets a lot of use, squaring up stock and cutting pieces to exacting...
  18. Drill Press Mobile Cart

    This is a simple drill press mobile cart I came up with. The cart includes a drawer for bits and accessories. I also included shelves for other tools. The shelves include cut outs for a better fit.
  19. Much Needed Tool Storage - Completed

    The wife and I started this project in September and over the course of several weekends and holidays we completed these Pegboard Storage racks just after Christmas. The design comes from "The Complete Small Shop magazine" I received as a bonus for ordering a subscription to the wood smith...
  20. Tool Storage Wall Cabinet with Movable Dividers

    Here is a Tool Storage Wall Cabinet a made to help get all those handheld power tools, nail guns, and small jigs organized! It's got flexibility with movable dividers in the center shelf to allow for customization to specific tools. I mounted it on a french cleat system to allow for future...
