What a nice useful gift your kids bought you for your birthday. I like the way you made the cart fit the legs of the miter saw stand. Your cart gave me an idea for my workmate. You always need storage and mobility in the shop. Thanks…"
I put together a face frame with lap joints to a tool cabinet plan that I made from an article from Woodsmith magazine a few years back. I didn't have the Kreg jig at the time. I did learn that you want the top and bottom to be…"

You don't have to get it fancy--- keep it simple.
Make it using the basic tools you have available.
You can store small cutoff pieces in 5 gal plastic buckets.
Long thin pieces can be stored in plastic pipe, down spouts, or the like,…"

Can anyone help me out on some ideas I could use on making a rolling lumber cart. There are so many different ones, that I want to use it to also store some old windows until I get to making the cold cases for my raised planting boxes. I also need to get my stored wood off the ground and organized so I can see what I got. Right now, I really don't know what I really have.See More
"I would have to put in the three Hand tools such as, marking & measuring, as one. The second would be my clamps and the third would be my power tools. My fourth would be my wood planes. I through those in because I rather do it old school."

Hi Leslee , thank,s for nice comment on case , used Spanish Oak on this one and a lot of my other project,s , the guy did not want poly on this one and did have a lot of room to display a lot of thing,s , have a great day , JIM !!
Thanks for your input, Leslee. I will check, but at our location our county doesn't require building permits, although they are quick to put an evaluation on our property tax!
Our plan is to purchase a building that comes with the metal all cut and all the hardware, overhead door, walk out door and window included. We would like an overhang of the roof on one side to cover a porch area. We will hire one experienced carpenter who has put up a couple of barns for us. I am lucky in this, my husband, son, and neighbor are going to help the carpenter to keep costs at a minimum. I am buying 6 inch insulation from my brother, who overbought for his shop. That is all I have done for sure. Are you putting up a building for a wood shop? Did you have plans to install a dust collection system? There are so many things to consider, I am a bit overwhelmed. I am thankful for the carpenter we have, but he is open to new ideas too.
I hope your disability allows you to get your building up and functioning soon. It would be nice to have an area to work in this cold weather!
Hi Leslee , thank,s for the nice comment,s on my bench !!! I saw the basic plan on Lowes site and revised it to my own taste,s !! Right now I have one together , two half done , two more on the bench ready to go together and picked up an order for one more today, going to be making benches for awhile , HA! Have a good day , Jim !!
Hi Leslee, thanks for the nice comment,s on my Rocking Horse , I like making thing,s for the little one,s and love to see that smile on their face when they first see it , makes all that work worth while , have a good day , Jim !
Hi Leslee , Thank you very much for the comment on my chair , the oo1 picture is the one the guy sent me to see if I could make one like it , the 003 picture is the one that I made with a few changes to the boom - tool box and the colors !! I am sorry if I confused every one by posting both pictures , just wanted to show every one what I had to work with to make this chair , also posted my mistake on the main page !! sending you a pic. of the right one , have a great day , JIM !!!
Thanks Leslee for all of the Information. I will be checking out both of the websites. I'm not ready to build one just yet, but I'm always looking to get ideas. I will check out the information on the height for sure. I am 5'7 and don't usually have too much trouble with the height of the tables. This will definitely help me with making a decision. Lorrie
Thanks for the tip on train items at Rockler.com. Not only are the buildings of interest to me, but I found the router bits for building the tracks to be something I was in the market for. Greatly appreciate it Leslee! :)
Leslee , thank you for your comment on my clamps , It did take years to get them , but I can do a few projects at a time and you can never have to many clamps, have a great day and enjoy building your projects , JIM
I do enjoy what I have built from scratch and as far as licorice I have it there on account I have two neighbor girls that come over and ask for some scrap wood so I tell them they have to sweep floor for the wood and then they take a few red ropes.
