Compactness and easy access go together to make a space-saving storage winner. In addition to creating multiple board storage, the racks function like stickers allowing air to circulate freely around the boards so they acclimate more quickly to your shops environment.
Workspace is at a premium in my small shop. So I built a workbench that folds down from the wall like an ironing board. I made it sturdy enough to handle most tasks. But best of all, it folds away into the wall when I do not need it.
With the success of our 4 room Victorian Barbie Dollhouse, 04-FS-152, we dug through our archives to produce this two room Barbie Doll House. We actually designed this dollhouse back in the 1970s when we were producing fully built scale model wood product for the tole painting industry. This project was a popular seller. We have revived the design and now offer it for sale in this easy to make woodworking plan. We improved on the original design by correcting the scale, updated the style of furnishings and even added more furniture. In the plan are the following details to build; a two room house with a deluxe fireplace with logs and adirons, shutters and planter boxes by the windows and a 13 piece furniture set. A beautiful wall mounted Regulator clock is scaled from full size design. You could even fit a small clock movement on the face. The patterns for the furniture and many of the house designs are drawn full size. We include patterns to make curtain rods to allow you to add curtains to both windows. Picture frames of different sizes could be made to fit photos for added realism. A scaled Queen bed includes decorative headboard, pillow and foot bench. The building has a flat back so it could be mounted on the wall to allow for playroom underneath... or to pass the vacuum. You can make this project from common pine lumber 12 inches wide and some 1/4 inch plywood. Easy to make in a weekend.
This simple project will get your laundry room organized. Its a wall mounted shelf with a spot for the ironing board, hanging space for clothes and shelf for extra laundry room items.
Give the ironing board a new home. Ironing boards were never intended to be works of art. But a project as attractive as this should not be relegated to the laundry room. Now, you can store your board quickly and easily, and best of all, out of sight.

This multi tasking chair design has been around for more than a century, known as a Jefferson Chair. Inspired by the Jefferson Chair, our design provides a wider stance for added stability and the shorter ironing board allows for the rounded tip of the board to rest securely on the footrest. Ironing measures approximately 36x12 inches. Measurements are with the ironing board in the vertical position. Also known as a Bachelors Chair or a SitOnIt Chair.
