I needed an extra bed in my old house for one of the tenants. Rather than buy something, I decided to just build a bed out of construction lumber.
This unique table top design came out of my desire to build a hardwood topped table using the hardwood from firewood.
My dad had built me a round kitchen table for the house I had bought just the year before. My dad likes to build things rather massive, and the base for this round table was especially massive. It was not my style, and I was afraid I would keep hitting it with my knees. So we struck a compromise and built another table together, this one based on my own design.
At the link you will find a great article on building a bed frame. No dimensions are given, but very informative none the less.
Occasionally, I will need to sand a small wooden part on a drum or disk sander. But holding onto small parts can be a challenge. A pair of pliers could do the job, but I wanted something with a softer grip. So I came up with the small parts clamp shown in the photo.
Standard sandpaper comes in 9 x 11 inch sheets. But this is rarely the size that I need. Most often, I end up dividing a sheet into smaller pieces to fit my sander or a sanding block. For a long time, I made do with simply folding the sandpaper and then tearing it. But this crude method often gave me less than satisfactory results. So I decided to come up with a more reliable way to do the job. See my DIY sandpaper cutter.
These tool storage racks can be built to the size that best fits your workshop layout and available wall space. The ones pictured on the are 4 feet high by 4 feet wide and could have been built 4 feet high by 8 feet wide or any other size to fit your wall space. You decide on the size that best fits your workshop situation.
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.
