Carpentry, not beautiful, but necessary

Worked on the carriage house workshop this week. Had to make space for a saw till and plane cabinet I will be building. For now, general carpentry. Installed french cleats, a sandpaper cabinet and miscellaneous tool hangers to get organized. The remaining space is for the till and plane cabinet. These will not be "shop grade" work, but a chance to practice some inlay joinery and other inlay work. I can't wait to start the fun stuff, but, as always, organizing a small shop is a requirement to maintaining workspace.


As someone who loves to restore things, it is fulfilling to have completed the french cleat and associated projects from scrap on hand.

Nicely done, Greg! Always good to get more organized. And we're looking forward to seeing the inlay work when you get to that.

I like the look of your work bench. I still have my old alloy frame workmate but finding modern ones too heavy for me. Yours look as if made from strong plastic...is it?
good work. Makes me feel guilty at the state of my sheds.

Hey, it looks great to me, I love organization, although I am the worlds worse at it.

The old Black and Decker workmate is made of steel. Very heavy. Found it in the carriage house when we bought the home. The wood top was destroyed by flooding and the frame was a rust bucket. Cleaned it up and painted it. Made a new top from an old particle board desk top I found. Added some oak jaws. It has served well in its second life.
