    Hi! I'm curious what people's thoughts are on organization systems they've used for their shop. Some general questions I have: Do you have a successful organization system/what makes it good? Do you lose things often? Do multiple people use your space? Do you have general or specific...

    Howdy everyone, I've been a lurker for a while but decided to make an account when I was trying to figure out how to best create this shelf (a request from the wife, so saying "no" isn't an option :) ) My biggest curiosity is how to make the "V" without it being super flimsy. Granted, this...

    My wife bought me a pretty nice mitre saw for Christmas. (Didn't bother wrapping it!) Double bevel, sliding, the works. My task, build shelving that wraps around a corner with invisible mounts. Like this. I've got a general idea of how to get this done but like I said, I'm new to this aside...

    Hi, I'm building my first built-in cabinet/bookcase in our living room. But I'm running into a small issue re: design. The North wall will have one long media-sized cabinet on the bottom (22" depth), with a 10" depth bookcase on top. This will run right to the corner of the North wall and East...
