  1. I ran out of wall space in my shop and needed more room for my woodturning tools, so I had been thinking of a mobile station that can be rolled anywhere I need it. I recently built what I call my prototype. With a lot of leftover MDF I went to work and came up with this, mind you it’s very rough but I can use this idea and fine-tune it to create a "real" finished cabinet. Let me know your thoughts.
  2. December is the month I reserve for projects I want to do in the shop. Jigs, extra storage, reorganization, CLEANING, etc etc. This year I saw that the space behind my sander was nothing more than a repository for abandoned jigs, projects and other assorted stuff. I started out with a grinder plate that extends out on slides when needed, then the 12 inch sander with dust collection. Those led me into getting a run of DC to them. And then finally to this blank space that begs me to make better use of it. Two boxes, the front one houses my rarely used tile saw as well as provides extra space for my sander plate. When I went to build this box I had to account for the slope of the sander. So the top is angles side to side and front to back to match that. The box behind that with the white top I stayed flat. Once I had built the front box I quickly discovered things roll right off the thing. So matching those angles on the back box was not going to work for me. Naturally the space I had left behind the front box did not allow me to make a full top, so I had to split that by 4 inches. Still worked and will always be better than nothing. Gives me space to put small projects to dry. With the Formica clean up is simple, besides someone gave me 2/3 sheet recently. Free being the best price! As always these boxes are color coded to aid in memory of what I put inside them. Also helpful if you send someone to get something you can cite color, size and location. Not a lot of time on project but took several days to get finish work done and final assembly. In all a great addition to my shop. One that utilizes some dead space. Because like everyone else here space in the shop is limited. Funds to build that 10,000 sq foot shop are also limited, as in I have yet to win the lottery or have a wealthy relative leave me a mint. LOL Enjoy and be inspired.
  3. Hello All, I am new to the forum and want to show you where I do my stuff. We have a three car garage and I get the single bay for my shop. There is not a lot of room, only 12'X20' but I have a lot of fun. Since I don't have a lot of space I have to have multi-use work spaces. When I am reloading, my press shares a bench with my router and then it is stored when I am done. I put curtains on my benches to prevent sawdust from collecting on my equipment.
  4. Just saw a handy workshop hint to use pegboard for your tools. While I've had pegboard, I've gotten away from it, thinking it's a relatively inefficient way to store tools. I much prefer my mechanic's chest that sits next to my workbench. A drawer for knives, others for chisels, saws, hammers, measuring and marking, router bits, drill bits, rasps & chisels, screwdrivers, wrenches, etc. I'd take me a 12' wall to hold what my chest does in 30" Besides, it keeps them cleaner and if I get a new tool, I don't have to rearrange everything to get it next to its friends. What's your take on this?
  5. I am far from organized as a new turner, but I do feel the need already, that's a good sign right?
  6. Well I set out this afternoon to do some cleaning in the shop and this is how far I got. Anyone else have days like this?
  7. First I have tell you I have a half garage that is unheated. Then on super bowl Sunday, just before the game, I discovered our side by side frig/freezer had quit and everything was nearly thawed, So much for the game. It took an hour to get the stuff taken care of and most was in coolers...........where else, but in my half of the garage. Then the bottom dropped out of the temperature with highs near zero. This meant that I had to be sure stuff didn't freeze in the garage. One thing I didn't have to worry about was ice for the coolers since we have about 10" of snow in the yard. So what am I going to do in my shop? The new frig came today and so did the temperature. It will be in the 50 range and I will spend time doing something in my shop............. even if it is nothing.
