Shop Storage Solutions

with George Vondriska

Who wants to work in a cluttered shop? It’s no fun constantly moving stuff from one flat spot in your shop to another, just so you can create a work space.

Part of what leads to clutter is simply not having a good place to put your material and tools. It’s an old cliché, but it’s true – It’s best to have a place for everything, and everything in its place.

The tips and projects in this class are designed specifically to add organization and storage to your shop, and get rid of your clutter.

We’re here to help

This class provides you with a number of shop-made storage options; from drawer organizers to parts bins to French cleat systems to a chisel holder. You’ll see, step by step, how to build each item, and get tips on how to adapt these projects for your shop and your needs. With these storage solutions in your shop and at your fingertips, the only reason for not being better organized is that you’re not taking advantage of them.

There’s lots of woodworking here

These are great projects. In addition to adding shop-made storage to your inventory, these projects will provide you with many woodworking skills. There are tons of woodworking tips and tricks provided throughout the class that you’ll be able to use on other projects. You’ll learn about:

  • Material selection
  • Fastener choice
  • Cross-halving joints
  • Cutting sequence when working with plywood
  • Making a face frame
  • Stopped dadoes
  • Hanging a cabinet door
  • Banding plywood edges
  • And lots more

In addition to the detailed video, this class provides you with some downloadable resources and helpful information to print and keep, including a detailed Class Guide you can follow and use as a reminder for the key points of the class, and a Resources document that will give you information on the products you’ll see in class and drawings of the storage projects built in the class.

If you’re looking to spend more time woodworking and less time looking for tools, this is the class for you
