  1. Would molding be okay you think stored u see an outside over hang that is away from rain and sun?
  2. Question I just came into some molding my uncle got it and decided he wanted something else so was wondering can this be stored outside as long as it is out of the weather??? Or don't risk it?
  3. Planning and organizing my work space, I am going over in my head different ways to build, or not to build, storage for my hand tools. I have gone over in my head a whole bunch of ideas, and one thing I always love to think about is re-purposing old cabinets for my storage solutions. I currently have old kitchen overhead cabinets now, where my finishing supplies and hardware is stored, they were given to me by a buddy at work years ago, and they have served me well. I was looking through local ebay sales in my area for antique cabinets, that I could reconfigure to fit my hand tools, and I came across this old pine cabinet for $285 bucks on Ebay. The lumber would cost that much to build it, and then my time, of which I have very little, it would be nice to just have this cabinet, and retrofit some dividers into it for my hand planes, and shaves and braces etc. I think this would be a really fun project wouldn't it? I could most definitely make this work for my hand tools storage.
  4. Here are a couple of pics of a storage cabinet I built for the wife. She found one of my WWing mags and made the "request" (Ha!) w/o the attendant "please". Who am I to resist SWMBO? I did garner a few points for it, though. hat
  5. I do the audio/visual program for our turning club and we upgraded the computer from laptop to desktop last year (cheaper to upgrade a desktop than a gaming laptop) and have had it stored in a plastic box along with a box I made for the cameras and auxiliary cables. Carrying that big tub even with a folding cart was just a pain so I designed a box for it. The box is padded with carpet I have had for about 25 years (came out of a drugstore) . The latches are matched so lid can be put on either direction without causing a bind. To install I put latches (2 piece) on one side then reversed the top and put on half the latch on both sides (top on one and bottom on the other) to match. The top is divided for cameras and other items. What you cannot see in this is that there is a double support on the near side to lock the top in. The top locks in with these swing arms and is secure to turn over keeping items in place. There is foam on top and bottom of the camera compartment. Paint is acrylic lacquer.
  6. Last of the grooves, and tongues are done...time to put this old plane away... Don't quite fit? Well, IF I tear it down a bit, and start stacking parts.. Put the cutters back into the two slots..straight cutters in the back row. There is a 3/16" Match cutter, a sash cutter, a 1/4" match cutter, and a whole herd of bead cutters.. The Support Staff. Fence, sliding stock, cam, and both sets of rods. spare spurs, screwdrivers, and a couple extra cutters. One of the cutters is too small to stash in with the rest of the straight cutters. Then I can stash the main event.. Has to slip in here, just so...IF I want the next item... Mainly, close the lid, and latch it shut. Until needed again. Keeps it dust free.
  7. This is NOT a Christmas ornament My wife knits and crochets. She has a huge assortment of needles. Some projects, such as socks, she uses 5 or 6 at a time. Don't ask, I have NO idea how or why. She wanted a place to store her long needles, this one is 6" high with a 2" dia hole. I used Purple heart and a piece of that had a unusual name that I can't remember. Maple would have worked as well, but my daughter sent me a box of different woods for Christmas last year and I am trying to us some of it. (Some of it is only good for firewood)
  8. Well I did it again. I perused Amazon books this past weekend and found some wonderful book about Shaker Furniture. I know our admin John Moody loves Shaker too! I am hooked on Amazon Used Books, you can purchase virtually any book used on Amazon at a fraction of the cost of a new book, great for us, not so great for the original author and publishers. But hey, your keeping small independent used book stores across the nation busy and cash flowing! So there is an upside to the supply side of this. Here is another book I purchased through Amazon at this link: The following books arrived over the last two days in my mail box, and I love them! This first book caught my eye completely because I really want to build a shaker Mt. Lebanon style chair, and rocker. I love the style and the weaved seating. I paid $3.99 plus $3.99 shipping on this one. How to Build Shaker Furniture by Thos. Moser, the Moser's are one of my favorite woodworking families in the entire world. I get their catalog of furniture every year and I drool and I also get inspiration for design ideas. This book arrived in excellent condition as well. I paid $1.99 plus $3.99 shipping on this one. Here is another Kerry Pierce book for Shaker furniture and storage. I can't wait to dig and read this from front to back. I paid $4.99 with free shipping on this one. All three of these book were listed on the Used Book Scorecard as "Good Condition". Folks, these books look brand spanking new! These are the actual scans of the books I received, if you look at the first book above, you'll see a little turned up corner at the lower right of the cover, that is the only visible wear out of all three of these books. Each book ranges in prices from 24 to 30 bucks retail based on the tag on the rear covers. I paid a total of $18.95. You can't beat these deals, I would like to encourage anyone who wants a book, to avoid purchasing new, and re-purpose these used books at a fraction of the cost. Thanks for reading!

  9. What do you for storage of canned goods? Crates? Stackable crates? ? What do you do?
  10. It's been years. I have put up with a cluttered sloppy mess of bits in pill bottles poly wrappers making this drawer a complete unworkable disaster. Finally I got fed up with the madness and drilled a few holes in a hunk of ply I've seen People pooh pooh those router bit collections ( see the ones in red) I bought one for 30 sumpin bucks at a show and have never regretted it. I use the daylights outta them.
  11. I finally finished my storage bin and got my shop cleaned up.
  12. I needed storage where I could see them all and be out of the way. If I don't like where they are I just remove them to a different spot keeping in mind I may half to walk under them.
  13. My first router table was an over-engineered bench top affair. (Ever hear the saying that an elephant is a mouse built to government specifications? Well, I'm that guy.) I didn't have a sophisticated system to store my bits, so I used empty prescription bottles. No way the plastic would damage the edge of the bit, the bit was protected from damage by contacting anything else in the box or drawer into which the bit was very carefully placed, , and the bottles were free. A piece of masking tape took care of labeling. Downside was that most of the bottles not transparent, so a lot of picking up and reading the label was involved. Worked good until I built my current router table, and started using blocks to hold each bit.
  14. Just finished a small jug for my wife. It is made to her specs and she has plans to keep some of her craft/knitting/sewing tools in it. I made it of Leopard wood. She likes it............mission accomplished.
  15. Took a bit today, to assemble the parts, and fit things into the tool chest. Tray turned out a bit wider than needed. Lumber was a bit thicker than needed to be. had to cut a rebate along the tote tray's side, to allow the tray to sit down in the chest. Next time, will use a thinner stock..( and there seems to always be a "next time") Ok, a look or two of the completed tray, all nestled into it's new home I suppose I had better hide than level, before Moody shows up. A view from the other direction I think this chest is getting ....almost full nah, I think i can fit a few more things in there...
  16. How do the rest of you store your lathe tools? I am looking for ideas and inspiration. I don't have any more wall space available, so that is not an option. I currently have them on a shelf which rests on the bottom part of my lathe, but that gets to be cumbersome, and I wind up laying my tools on my table saw that is right behind me when I am in the middle of a project. I don't like that either, because it is too easy for them to roll off. Thinking of some kind of a turntable or rack mounted to the end of my lathe, but I also don't want to block the bed in case I want to take the tail stock off and slide something else up there. Rockler has a turntable that caught my eye, but it looks flimsy, and had some less than stellar reviews, but that is the basic direction I am leaning. Ideas and pictures would be greatly appreciated.

  18. I took down part of my shelving. I am installing bins hoping it will give me more and better storage.
  19. I have a 3 car garage and the 2 car side door broke a spring. So I called a garage door repair guy to install the new springs. So since my wife's car was parked on the 2 car side I had to move things around to open the single car side so that the guy could get in. So I moved my table saw and then got the single car door unlocked (note: that door has not been opened for about 3 years so there was a lot saw dust build up and spider webs). So once I got the door open I had to move my scrap wood cart. What I did not expect was finding out that I am a recovering scrap wood hoarder and was unprepared to deal with the weight of the wood cart. So once I got the single garage door open I almost got a hernia trying to move it out onto the driveway. So the garage door guy got the new springs installed and headed out to his next job. So I swept up all the sawdust and went to roll the scrap cart back into the garage and out of the 6 wheels on the cart I had 3 of them all fail due to the weight. So I figured that it was time to get rid of most of the scrap. I ended up filling up the back of my pick-up more than half full and took it to the dump. I did save some of the old scraps and exotics and was able to get the scrap cart back in the garage using a 2 wheel hand truck. It was sad as I had to toss the scrap wood at the dump, but it had to be done. On the way home I swung by Home Depot and picked up 6 new swivel wheels of better quality.

  21. wanna conserve a boat load of space... make sliding door cabs ... use the base as a service trunk for DC, electric and air... use the doors as wall space... 16' of wall gives you 16' of storage and 12' of wall..... there no swinging doors that need to be allowed for.. (more floor space).. set the table out where you can work on/from it... this satellite shop it has a TS, BS, DP, DC, RT, lathe, miter saw, grinding station, welding cart, lumber rack, 24'' tile saw and a BMW touring bike in it... there is an overhead lumber rack that also holds the long pipe clamps... plan... there are 3 of these set for easy reach from bench... fold out drawing/plans table and mortising station.... 40x100(?) table.. the drawers hold frequently used tools.. not so frequent are in the wall units... BTW... that milk crates is a seat, tote, and laid over, a ladder/step stool... 32x52 RT w/ major bit storage that is also set to work the D4R, FMT Pro and miter trimmer... just make out the mirror on the BMW... don't know why this one fell over.. but it's end of tool rack storage... another end of rack storage... this one and the other one are on either side of the double doors... self explanatory... there are 6 large square food containers in each bin w/ contents labeled on the lid... table drawer contents... end of work table.. another pic that fell over... cubby hole filler for the sand paper sheets and slide out shelf for the oils...
  22. mostly done, still needs drawer fronts, laminate on the top, and some lattice on the back side to contain large sheets of poster board (side with one set of drawers). middle cabinet is shallow, allowing foot and knee room so she can sit on the stool and do crafty stuff. all on large, heavy duty casters, front 2 are locking so it stays put. next up is a sewing center of a similar design.
  23. Well don't know what happens to my post earlier this morning seems to have disappeared. No telling what I did wrong. Finally finished this project after 3 out of town trips and some other activities that kept me away. It a lot work to make this in 3 sections for my small shop. The side and back panel is Birch Plywood from the home center. I was not too impress with it but that what my wanted. The face frame and doors frame is Red Oak lumber with 1/4 inch Red Oak Plywood panel. The shelves is what the home centers called Select Pine or Clear and Better Pine. It the closes that I could come up with to match the plywood. And yes my wife beat me to it in filling the shelves up beforwe I got the picture taken.
  24. Between shuttle runs yesterday, I managed to make a quick pick at one garage sale. These items followed me home...$26 stayed there. I don't think the rotary tool had been used much if at all. The flex shaft had never been used since the collet drive was still sealed in the plastic bag. The flex shaft alone retails for $24.98 + tax at Lowes... Case is dirty on the outside, but very clean on the inside. It's missing the sanding sleeve drums, but I have several of those. I bought an identical model w/o flex shaft but lots of accessories and different case 4 or 5 years ago at a yard sale for $10...it was near new too... Three parts/ tool cases for a buck. The wire brushes are L-R 1/2", 5/8", 5/8", & 3/4" ;$2.50 /box Same guy had some 2 or 3 years ago but were 1/4", 3/8" & 1/2". They work great for rust removal & polishing in thread bores, ID's, corners etc of tools, parts etc. Wish there had been more of the 1/4" & 3/8"...getting low on those
