The organizing shelf plans show you how to make a shelf for recycling bins and storage bins.  This is very useful in a garage to get these bins off the floor and maximize the storage space on the walls.  This project uses lap joints, so it could be a way to expand your experience with another type of joinery.

If you're interested in spraying finishes and paints, a spray booth is a good idea to contain the mess from overspray.  The challenge is, who has room for a spray booth?  We designed a collapsable spray booth that uses a drop cloth over a frame.  It incorporates an area for filters and a fan to pull the overspray away from the workpiece.  The plans for this spray booth are available to you can build one for your workshop!

  1. Looking at the fireplace picture very nice design overall.

    I kept looking at the base of the fireplace with respect to the wall molding and thought it would be a good idea to carry the wall molding all the way around the base to the opening for end off. I think would make this overall look better or at least that’s what I would have done if I was installing it it just looks plain at the bottom it doesn’t blend back to the wall molding otherwise very nice design just my suggestion

  2. I saw your video on wood movement.
    And that it expands and contracts against the grain.
    My question. Let’s say I make a entryway table 6′ by 3′ out of 2’x 6″× 1 1/2″ solid pine.
    Where would I put blocks underneath the table to keep it from splitting years from now.
    Thanks Dave God bless.
