    Sketch up lover?

    Here is the final version, you'll notice it's all screwed together to allow for changes if need be. Today I'll load it up with all my short pieces. Will probably add some markings for depth and a stop on the open flat shelf.

    Good morning guys, thought I would post an update to this thread. The project is much further along then this but more important projects have taken up my time. I'll try to get a progress shot later today after I clear out the current work.

    Utilizing Dead Space

    Thanks this picture of the handle is MUCH better. I like the jig idea to make all the handles the same height. And now its time to get busy on the router fence. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.
  4. I read somewhere about being able to upgrade the impeller for older wall mounted DC is this worth doing? I don't have the space to put a larger more powerful unit but would love to get the best out of what I do have.

    Utilizing Dead Space

    Really nice build, how much room did you leave around it to stand and work? Are the center part of your handles metal and epoxied to the stand offs? And lastly do you have a separate router fence, shop made? could you show it please.

    Could add a small block on top to keep it square. Kept the top clear of the stairs by a little bit.

    I think we worked through this very nicely, I'll have to add some supports/stop to the small shelves if I add them. Guys, do you see any room for improvement?? I might just go with one depending on how small the area is. These are the wheels I'll use.

    Yes that would be a good idea. They might make the cut or not? See my email

    Sounds right. I will definitely build to fit don't think the "exact" dimensions will be real close but might vary slightly.

    I like your fix for the support and just make it shorter to allow my wheel assembly to mount underneath. How do you like the wheel idea?

    No, I'm going to do it like this. If you watch the video it shows in the first minute or so. I have 6 wheels I think this will keep it running straight in and out like I want to.

    I think that works. Any suggestions from you?? Or the gang?

    I figure just go 18" all the way across to support those and close in the back bins at the same time.

    The triangle shape will be on the four rear dividers. The front that's open when under the stairs will be sqaured off at the 18" height the dotted lines will connect to the two partitions you drew in already with two small strips.

    Does this help Lew?

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
