Mobile Base

Since my workshop shares space in the garage with cars, my tools need to be mobile. So I made a simple base for each tool.

Stand, Workshop PVC

Whenever I am working with long pieces, I often have a hard time supporting the end of the workpiece. So I came up with this adjustable-height work support stand. The nice thing about this stand is that it can be built in about an hour for around $20 in materials.

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.

Panel Cart

This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a panel cart on casters for moving sheets of plywood. 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 Rack, Over the Bench

Since my workbench is in the middle of the shop, there is not an electrical outlet nearby to plug my power tools into. And trailing an extension cord across the floor is a safety hazard. So I decided to hang a strip of outlets above the bench.

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.

Storage Cans, Workshop

Because shop space is nearly always limited and there are so many different types and sizes of nails and screws, the space-saving, low-cost hardware organizer, has been a real advantage in my shop. It lets me see at a glance what is in each can.

Cleanup Center for your workshop (PDF)

I have built a lot of storage cabinets for my tools and hardware, so I always know right where to find them. Unfortunately, that was not the case for my cleaning supplies. To solve this problem I built the heavy-duty cleanup center you see above. The cutting diagrams and materials list are available to download in this Online Extra.

Planer Sled

With the cost of lumber, I am not crazy about throwing out short scrap pieces of wood. But planing short pieces (less than 12 inches long) in not recommended by most manufacturers. That is because the pieces can get caught between the feed rollers and chewed up by the blades.

Dovetail Joint, Double Twisted

I do not recall how, or when, I became curious about what I call the double-twisted dovetail. My interest was probably aroused by a discussion that centered on dovetailing in two directions at once, e.g., a drawer side to a front. For a long time I simply dismissed it as unworkable, without thinking it through. I was thinking idly about it one day, and realized that the joint was probably feasible. I experimented with pieces of pine and solved the conundrum...

Cabinet Scraper

I had a lot of trouble finding any local stores that carried wood working supplies. One of the things I wanted but no one even knew what I was talking about when I asked, was a cabinet scraper. So I spent some time online and found that you can get them from online woodworking stores, but I am also very impatient.
