A common way to cover the exposed edges of plywood in a woodworking project is with solid-wood edgebanding. The problem with this technique, however, is that it always requires some fussing around. To streamline things a bit, I began to take a different approach when applying edgebanding.
Without my small collection of extension cords, I think work in the shop would slowly grind to halt. But trying to keep these cords untangled and easily accessible was always a major challenge. The answer to this housekeeping problem was this storage rack.
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.
I use my scroll saw quite a bit, and I go through a lot of blades. So I came up with this convenient way of storing my blades while still keeping them close at hand. Now I do not have to get up every time I need a new blade.
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.
The roller stand I have in my shop really comes in handy. It is quick to set up and adjust and provides the extra support I need at the table saw, drill press, etc. But it does have one minor flaw. The folding design of the legs can make it a little unstable. If a workpiece hits the roller wrong, it can fold right up and flop over. But rather than put up with this annoyance, I tried to come up with a good solution.
This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a wooden hanger for drying parts after applying a finish. 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.
