Thought I'd continue this weekend with the tool storage for the WS, this time it is above the bench that needs addressing. as you can see its a bit of a mess.
I only wis I had the skill to put something together like Chris is doing for his tools, but alas this is not to be,,hey you never know withpractice anything is possible.



After I have moved all the electrics and re-positioned , all in line with Part P I might add, I knocked together the carcase for the cupboards, these three are intended to hold the planes, saws etc.



I added another smaller cuoboard on the end to take all the fixings I've accumulated, keeps them all together.
I haven't yet put the doors on the cupboard inthe middle, need some more offcuts to complete the project.



Now you can see my small collection of planes, not as many as the other two Woodkateers intimate I have.


Oh and one or two more of the smaller ones.





Don't really have anything to go in this one apart from boxed chesils , forstner and spur bits.

This is good because with plenty of extra space I have an excuse to add the odd tools or two.


Again all put together with the Kreg Jig, anyone toing and froing over whether to get the Kreg jig or a derivative of, then don't hesitate. You may think you'll only use it accassionally, but once you have it you'#d be surprosed at how useful it becomes.

It looks great Waka and you made it 50 times as fast as I am going at present! Your small collection of, ahem, 14 planes looks very distinguished too and the spokeshave category is coming along nicely I see.

Waka,

I have just looked at my shop, any chance of you popping round and sorting out my tool storage? I do have a kreg you can use. :roll:

Once again nice work, showing some of us up quite badly. :x :wink:

Up the proverbial creek
Ah the irony; a veritable advert for Rob Cosman's dovetailing DVDs, judging by the tool choices, but put together with screws. Oh, Waka, the whole excuse for posh workshop fittings is "practice for the proper furniture, dear". You're undermining us all, here. :roll: #-o

Flippin' posh, though. Wanna nice Cornish holiday while you do mine...? :wink: :D

Cheers, Alf

Thanks for that,makes me feel sooo much better... :cry:

Am currently thinking of getting a shed to store timber in,to make more space in the workshop.

But I'd only find something else to put in it (hmm,bench morticer,thinks me :shock: )

Very nice, Waka.

Neat and orderly - the way I like it. This has given me some good ideas, although, my plane collection has some way to go.

Cheers,

Howard

Thanks for the vote of confidence folks. next project starts on Wednesday, and you'll be pleased to know its not a cupboard.

When I built these I didn't realise I'd left room for tool expansion, although I've already been on the phone to His Philness talking about LV's, now how much space do I have :D :D :D

All you folks needing tool storage must get inthe queue, my list of things to make is about 2 years long.

I just use 2" screws through the wall battens, I also put some brackets underneath for added support. It seems to be strong enough.

Hope this helps
