Workshop Plans

A rock-solid workbench
and plenty of storage are essentials in any shop. Of course, both require space, which is especially tough to find in a shop that shares the garage with cars or has to fit in a confined basement room. This work center offers a solution for both situations, with a sturdy bench that drops out of the way when no longer needed, a big storage cabinet, and a handy perforated-hardboard tool-hanging rack.
Tool Chest Plans
I
n days gone by, to become a journeyman woodworker, an apprentice had to pass one final test. He had to use his new skills to craft a tool chest. If his master approved of his work, the apprenticeship ended, and the chest became a sales tool to show off the journeyman’s talent. Let this handsome chest when completed do the same for you.
Tool storage unit
We packed all these tools and bits—135 pieces total—into an instant-access storage unit that takes up just 2x2' of wall space. Think of how it will help organize your shop!
Spin the entire carousel to access each of its six tool-holding wings and rotate each wing to access both of its sides and the center column.
Storage unit
Two simple projects, one great idea: Give the notes or paper you need a place to be stored, and then studied
Clamp organizer
Solve your clamp-storage problems once and for all with one or more of our five custom holders. These clever wall-hung helpers not only keep all your clamps at arm’s reach, they also look great doing it.
1. Spring-clamp holder
2. Bar-clamp rack
3. Locking C-clamp support
4. C-clamp rack
5. Handscrew-clamp organizer
Sanding Station
You’ll spend less time gritting your teeth and more time sanding when you store everything you need–sanders, sandpaper, and sanding belts–in one convenient wall-hung cabinet. The cabinet accommodates a portable belt sander and a palm-grip sander.
Wall Cabinet
When we decided to build the Ideal Shop we wanted every component to be fresh, new, and above all practical. With that in mind, we put our background to work and designed a wall-cabinet system that works great for organizing hand tools, safety equipment, power-tool accessories, and much more. The cabinets go together quickly, they won’t cost you an arm and a leg, and the acrylic inserts in the doors allow you to spot your well organized tools in a jiffy, and keep dust away from them, too. In this WOOD PLAN, we’ll show you how to build a 2x4' cabinet.
Lumber rack
Looking for versatility in a lumber storage rack? This one's got it! Our rack features adjustable supports that attach to vertical 2x4s for holding loads of boards. The unique sheet-goods bin lets you easily sort through heavy sheets and slide out the one you want. There's even between-the-studs storage for short stock and dowels.
Wall unit
Looking for that single location where you can store all of your sanding supplies? This WOOD magazine original, featuring a half-dozen easy-to-build projects, may be just the tick.
It includes holders for belts, sanding discs and accessories, stick sanders and strips, hand sanders, and rolls of adhesive-backed sandpaper.
Six great organizers. 1. Sanding-stick and sand-paper-strip organizer. 2. 5" sanding-disc holder. 3. Hand-sander rack and tote. 4. Disc-sander center. 5. Roll-sandpaper dispenser. 6. Belt-sander belt divider.
Shop Cabinet
Perforated hardboard and hooks help you get organized once and for all. What’s the #1 complaint most woodworkers have about their shop? You guessed it. They have a hard time finding the right tool when they need it most. If your shop could stand a little bit more order, try building the double-door cabinet shown above and the single-door unit shown at left. You can clean up your act in a hurry, which will leave you more time to do what you really want to do–build stuff. Large cabinet measures 48 x 48" and small cabinet measures 30 x 48".
Sand paper cabinet
Left in the open, sandpaper will cup due to humidity. To keep this perennial problem in check and keep our sandpaper organized and away from dust, we came up with this multi-purpose cabinet. We’ve made room for sanding belts, a sandpaper cutter, a mini shelf for your sanding blocks, a holder for your scrapers, and clips to hold sanding discs in place.
