Just a quick post to gloat about my birthday gifts and show a few pics of some simple tool storage solutions around the shop.
The birthday loot:
From my wife and girls, a set of Marple's Beech handled English cabinetmakers screwdrivers from Tools for Working Wood, an 8" x 10' coil of .035 thick 1095 spring steel ( I see at least 3 panel saws and a frame saw or two in here ), and some Tremont cut box nails of various lengths. The piece of wood these are sitting on is a 4' length of 8/4 poplar, 17" wide, that I found at Woodcraft during our last SAPFM meeting. I don't know how to make a windsor chair yet, but when I do, I have enough for two seats here. Thanks for the birthday money that bought this mom. Maybe these aren't your most typical birthday gifts but they sure are MY kind of gifts.
And some shots of my tool storage:
|Found a nice cask to replace the galvanized can. |
Actually, the galvanized can fits inside the cask perfectly.
|I love these racks. So simple to make but so versatile.|
|Room for more moulding planes. :)|
|This won't stay empty for long.|
And my lumber storage rack above stairs:
|Had to angle the uprights back somewhat to keep the rack|
from intruding too far into the floor space.
And doesn't every shop need a place to hang your cocked hat?
|No, I don't wear it when I'm working in the shop.|
( Unless nobody's looking )
