    hello all,

    I am converting a 10 x 14 basement bedroom to a small workshop. I am going to build the PS bench (have several components in process (about 6-1/2 feet long. ) and have an 18″ x 4 foot long x 5 foot high chest of drawers for small tool or misc storage, but also has 2 full widths drawers at bottom which I can containerize if need be.

    Plan on putting up hanging wall storage (4 x 8) for chisels, files and rasps, saws,  layout tools  (fun mapping out I’m sure) but still need to decide on a front vise for the bench (Lee Valley has a few to choose from in my area)

    May put a black board on the wall too and I have a small office desk for sketching or sharpening, etc.

    I’m going to be searching for those ‘why didnt I think of that’ things and must have ideas BEFORE I get to far.

    Great idea Ken – I’ll have to go read in more detail. Immediately it looked like ‘skids’ that could be hung on the wall…  I plan on using skids which will form part of my wood supply as I plan to re-purpose some of the better pieces for projects. (I’ve already built a footstool out of maple).

    I like the plane storage idea on this one!

    I just made a quick clamp rack and used a french cleat to mount it to my wall.  I’m thinking a 3/4 inch sheet of plywood screwed to a wall with strips of cleats screwed to the plywood would be a really nice modular storage system.

    thank you for that – clamps are definatley some thing to consider as I pland to add more (always) ans the ones I have are a real mix of types. (f-clamps, the Paul specials, and quick clamps in all sizes.

    Lots of google images to look at anyway.
