Edge Gluing Guide

When gluing up a solid-wood panel, the boards always seem to shift up or down slightly. So I used 1 3/4 inches square hardwood, as shown in the drawing.

Glue Bottle Tote

When it comes to gluing up a project, I can never seem to remember where I left the glue bottle the last time I used it. And once I find the glue bottle, I am forever shaking it and pounding on it as if it were a bottle of ketchup, trying to get the glue to come out. My solution was to make this simple glue bottle tote.

Vise helper, Bench

Whenever I clamp a wide panel or long board to my workbench on edge for sanding or planing, I need a way to support the other end. So I built this simple bench vise helper, as shown in the photos to the right. It is easy to make and allows me to support panels up to three feet wide.

Extension Cord Holder

We all have extension cords laying around that have bad ends on them. This neat extension cord holder makes great use of these old cords. Extension cords, especially long ones, can be a real mess to string out and coil back up. Also plugs on the ends can become damaged by just yanking on the cord to unplug a tool. This is a good project to untangle those cords and fix the old damaged ones.

Tilt Top Shop Cart

This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a cart for moving sheet goods and for infeed/outfeed for table saw. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online. We do not provide support for this software. Not all drawings have the measurements displayed but you can use the measurement tool in SketchUp to easily and accurately determine the dimensions of each lumber part. Most drawings do not have instructions, its assumed you can build it based on the completed drawing provided.

Tool Recycling - Hacksaw blade as a scribe

I like to use a sharp marking knife to make crisp, accurate layouts for my projects. But too often I could not find one when I needed it. So out of necessity, I decided to convert one of my over-the-hill hacksaw blades into a handy and inexpensive marking knife.

Storage Case Pull-out

I never seem to have enough storage space in my shop....So, to store these and other small items, I built a pull-out storage case, like you see in the photo. The case is large enough to hold a couple of small plastic storage cabinets with lots of drawers (the kind you find at hardware stores and home centers). I also added a few shelves to store other items.

Workshop Upgrade (PDF)

Organization is the key to making any shop work well, no matter what the size. And if your shop is like most, it could use some additional storage space. (I know mine could.) That is where this shop system comes in. It is obvious there is a lot of storage space packed into this wall system. What is not so apparent is its easy-to-build design. Each unit is assembled from standardized components. And it is made from inexpensive, easy-to-find construction lumber, MDF, and plywood. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.
