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.
Sometimes a person just doesn’t have enough space to fit all of their workshop tools. Maybe that is because your workshop is really small. Maybe it is because you are using a multi-purpose area, like a garage, or maybe you just have a boat-load of tools. Either way, a compact workbench can help with that problem. So this week, I am going to show you how to build my 3-way convertible workbench!
If you have a miter saw, you may have noticed that sometimes your cuts just aren’t as accurate as you would like. Typically, this isn’t obvious until you are in the process of assembling a project – usually that very last piece – and you notice that the fit isn’t as tight as you would like. This can be very frustrating, but the good news is that your problem most likely stems from your miter saw needing to be calibrated. This is something that needs to be done from time to time. Good news! I am going to show you how to perform a miter saw maintenance for accurate cuts.
It seems like I am always adding new tools and gadgets to my workshop, but no matter how much I have, there is always something else that I know that I need. Trying to decide exactly what to buy and what to wait on can sometimes be confusing. Other than the actual tools that are needed to do a job, there is so much more that can be necessary. So, I took a good long look at my workshop and narrowed down an accessories list that I feel contains 10 workshop item must haves.
