Hand Tool Shop Organization

I find myself moving towards more hand tool use. Since my first Rob Cosman class on dove tails and the first WIA in 2008 I have come to appreciate and understand the role of hand tools as a woodworking craftsman.

So I created a plan in my OCD mind. Now that most of the plan has been completed, it is easy to put it in writing.

The plan:

Build a new shelf unit to store all of the hand power tools and a few other orphaned items. Completed

Move a section of plastic storage boxes to the space vacated by the hand power tools.  Completed

Build a new “Chisel Chest”.   This would contain all my measuring and marking tools as well as chisels, rasps and plane parts. Completed

Complete revamp the “tool wall”.  Add 2 feet of space and remove everything and start over with the organization. This included a new Hammer rack and a new screw driver rack.  Completed

Build a new Roubo style workbench.  I call this Workbench TWO.  In Process

    I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to check out on Dimepiecela site. I have read in The Sun that the brand was acquired by a UK hedge fund in excess of $50 m. I have just bought the Dimepiece Red Flags Unisex Long Sleeve Tee from Ebay and absolutely love it xox

    Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really
    make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design.
    Many thanks

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was interested
    to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas
    or hints? Many thanks!

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making
    a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links
    or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
