Re: UPDATE: Wooden Boxes, by Doug Stowe and Strother Purdy

I am working on a wood box to donate to the State of Texas that will contain a walnut gavel and strike plate (already turned). I would appreciate any help if making a nice wood box to present this gavel to the chairperson of the committee of which I am a member.

Re: UPDATE: The Unplugged Woodshop: Handcrafted Projects for the Home & Workshop by Tom Fidgen

Enjoy your magazine. I recently added another leaf to my folding storage unit you featured in your Tools and Shops Annual Edition Winter 2009. Also completed a small vacuum caddy fo small clean-ups in the shop.

Re: UPDATE: Google SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers - The Basics with Dave Richards

I have looked at the Sketchup type programs, most do not fit my needs. Perhaps a more Basic DVD will be better for my feeble mind.

Re: Free Plan: Space Saving Tool Rack

To MEwoordworker. The steel washer is what I had on hand. It was actually a steel tube, cut to length. It was the correct diameter to accept the bolt. You may find aluminum or copper tubing that works. However, if you find the hinges the sepltura999 found, sounds easier. This was originally made several years ago and had to be taken apart to remember how I originally made it. Any improvement is accepted. Note: The workbench in the drawing is smaller than mine. I have plenty of work space. You may wish to use a spacer between the peg boards so that the steel hooks for the peg board hangers have enough room against the opposite peg board.

Re: Free Plan: Space Saving Tool Rack

Good comments Andrew;however, I found that when the racks are folded to the right (I am right handed) there is plenty of room on the work bench. I alos have them set back slighyly. Plus being able to flip to the tool area I need helps greatly. i.e. all the screw drivers on front, pliers on one side, tape in one area, saws on one side,etc. Thanks again for your comments. VKA
