Making A Wood Storage Workbench For The Workshop

In this video I make a timber / lumber storage workbench to store all my shorter pieces of wood and offcuts so that they can be organised by length.  The bottom section holds pieces up to around 500mm, the middle section stores lengths up to around 700mm and the top section up to 1500mm.

Plans and cut list for this build are available free to Patreon patrons (link below) or via Etsy for a small fee at: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/KeithBrownMaker

Drill Bit Storage / Charging Station / Tape Rack / Paper Towel Holder - Workshop Organisation

In this video I work on four workshop organisation projects.

I make a drill bit storage system, a charging station to hold all my power tool batteries and chargers using a Bisley drawer unit, a tape rack to store my rolls of sticky tape and a paper towel holder.

Free instructions for the drill bit storage: https://www.patreon.com/posts/34214169

Please note: the instructions feature some design improvements over the one which I made, so if you follow them it won't be exactly the same as mine, it'll be better!

Rubber Mat Flooring For The Garage Workshop

In this video I install rubber mats to the floor of my garage workshop.  The main reason I chose to do this was to ease the fatigue and aches and pains in my feet, legs and ankles from standing on a concrete floor all day. But it will also help to prevent damage to tools if they drop on the floor, plus it helps insulate the floor and creates better acoustics in the room.  It also hides the old, ugly concrete floor. I used two glue / adhesives in the video, one of which worked well and one of which failed miserably due to temperature issues!

Filling The Inspection Pit & Laying A Concrete Slab

In this video I fill the inspection pit in my workshop and lay a concrete slab in the process of completing the works to the floor of my workshop, with a little help from my brother Alan.  The pit was filled with household rubble following refurbishment works at our property.  We used a mix of sharp sand and cement to create the concrete mix that we used.

My New Workshop Dust Extraction System

In this video I install my new dust extraction system.

This video covers the extractor machines themselves, the ducting, how I connected all my tools, and installing a pillar to the centre of the workshop from which to run services.

Making The Mitre Saw Station (PART 2)

In this video I begin making a new mitre station in the workshop.  It will have some of the usual features and some unusual ones too, including a passive dust collection drawer, t track, measuring tape and stop block, mitre saw hood and dust shrouds. Plus, it will also create space for some of my other machines like the belt and disc sander, planer thicknesser, drill press, and grinder.

Making New Vice Jaws

In this video I make some new jaws for a Record 52 1/2 P Vice which I cleaned up and restored in a recent video.  The jaws have some built in dog holes so that I can use it in conjunction with my new MFT workbench top. I used sapele for this one as it's a hardwood so it should be durable enough to last a few years of use and abuse.

Making An MFT Top - No CNC, No Guide Jigs

In this video I make a MFT top for my new workbench / assembly table for use with bench dogs, fences and accessories without the use of a CNC or any expensive guide jig systems.  Instead, I just use my usual workshop tools and a hand made jig to layout and drill the holes accurately.   Consider it a poor man's MFT table for those who don't have the money for a Festool table or one of the fancy guide jig systems like the UJK Teechnology Parf Guide System.
