If you do a lot of woodworking projects, you likely have accumulated a lot of leftover lumber. After a while, all of that lumber can take up a lot of space, especially if you are already working in a small area. Having a good storage and organizing system will not only keep your space neat and tidy, but it will also keep the lumber in good shape and make your work zone more efficient. A good lumber cart is one of the first steps to taking back control of your workshop. Today’s project will show you how to build a lumber cart for small spaces.
There are certain items in a DIYers toolkit that seem to become staples over time. One of those items for me is dowel rods.
I love the versatility of dowel rods, and how they can provide solutions to many of our household problems. So, I thought I would compile a selection of some of my favorite ways to use dowel rods. I hope that it inspires some great DIY projects for you!
I truly believe that base cabinets were placed on earth as some cosmic joke. Well, maybe it’s not that extreme, but it certainly is aggravating to try to store things in them. You either end up with everything right at the front and a ton of wasted space in the back, or you have to take everything out anytime that you need something. Adding drawers is the solution, but so many people tell me that while they love DIYing, they just don’t have the skills or tools to do something so drastic. However, there is an easy way to add pull-out drawers to bottom cabinets, and I am going to show you exactly how!
I have mentioned a few times, over the past month, that I have been working on my office/studio. I almost have everything exactly the way that I want it, except for the fact that I could use a bit more organization. I have so many magazines and binders that I need to keep, but as you know, magazines can cause a very cluttered looking design. Well, there was nothing for me to do but to get busy assembling some holders, but it makes for a good post! So, let me show you how to make magazine holders in a simple and easy fashion!
