Organizing My Shop – 5 Shop Organizing Projects

in this video I’m gonna be tackling a bunch of small tasks focused on organizing my shop just coming off of building it and moving everything in everything is out of place and more than that nothing has a place to be put away to it’s not only frustrating because I can’t locate anything but it’s also overwhelming because everything needs to be done right off the bat and of course it’s just one of those things that my shop will always be evolving and there’s just one thing at a time and to kick that off this week’s to-do list is a bunch of small things that aren’t necessarily challenging or even time-consuming it’s just a matter of taking the time to actually get it done the goal right now is to not necessarily set things up the way they will be permanently but more so to get things off of the floor out of boxes and off all of my horizontal flat surfaces so I started off with pegboard as it’s a dead easy solution to get a lot of things picked up quickly of course you can purchase four by eight sheets right off the shelf and throw them up however I did take a little bit of time to paint mine just to give it a little bit of color I also took the time to make a simple frame for it I grabbed some to bottom material and ripped it down and over at the table saw and this was actually done the night before I finally got power to hooked up in my shop so I saw having to work with my job sites all on the porch after ripping the boards down I also cut in a rabbet at the table saw so the pegboard would have a recess to fall into on the back side of the frame after touching the pieces together with screws I gave a frame a quick coat of paint then while that dried I took the time to make a stencil of my logo to transfer onto the pegboard to make a stencil I always print off the design that I’m after and cover the entire page in clear packing tape just to give it some rigidity then I used an exacto knife to cut it out I could now place the stencil where I wanted it on my board and trace it out to then paint I grab some help to move the pegboard inside the frame then set it inside that robit so that rested inside the border I attach the pegboard to the frame by using a fast-drying CA glue from tight bond called insta bond I switched over to type on original wood glue when gluing the support strips along the bat but then called the board done and ready to be hung now you don’t got to take it from me but I do recommend calling in a second person to help hang the pegboard it’s not that it’s heavy it’s just awkward to handle it gives it a story right have you ever come to my shop and notice how busted up my pegboard frame is you’ll know why on the second attempt I did admit defeat and called in help to lift and hold it in place while I secured it to my studs while working on pegboard I also hung my old pegboard from my previous shop when I was moving out I didn’t have the heart to leave it behind or throw it away and even though I’ve changed my logo I again I just love the story behind it and I’m glad that I held on to it having these few boards up made a huge difference in helping me clear off my flat surfaces it gives me a dedicated spot for things such as my safety glasses my chisels my glue brushes my tape measures my hammers all of the tools that I use on a very regular basis for simple things such as extension cords I would simply throw a hook into the wall you can see in this instance I started them off high but then I decided to add some French pleats to this little nub to store some extra hardware bins I had in a box so I just simply moved them down now again on this hardware storage I do have a master scheme I can’t wait to tackle for all of my hardware but it will take me time to not only design but to execute it so in the meantime instead of just having all these excess bins and all my hardware and a box somewhere on my floor I will use this temporary solution to get rid of the box they were in and also have all my remaining Hardware on display for my use and if you’re interested I do have a video on making these bins in three different sizes and also a free template I’ll leave you a link in the description it was at this point that power was actually flipped on in my shop and I got to use my cabinet grade saw for the very first time I put to use right away making more fringe cleats for my walls which a French cleat is just a piece of wood that has the top cut at a 45 degree angle I started off by hanging all of the holders I made previously in my old shop and this included my plug and paddle beds my hand tool such as side cutters and wire strippers and all of my screwdrivers and wrenches then I moved on to making new holders for the new sets of tools such as my Forstner bits well a lot of these bits come in their very own nice cases that keeps them organized I don’t like things tucked away and hid it I like things visible and easily accessible however I did use the box do you copy the layout of the bits I used any scrap of 1by material I had laying around and lined it up to the row of bits in their box then transferred the whole location to the scrap then I could take it to the drill press and punch a hole the majority of the way through the same size as the drill bit shank since I wanted two rows of bits on this particular folder I used the table saw to bevel the top of the scrap then wood glue to secure it to a piece of quarter-inch plywood this plywood piece is acting as a backward board for the holders to be secured to and also keep it from coming off the cleat so you can use anything you have laying around it doesn’t necessarily have to be quarter-inch plywood I use bread nails to hold the pieces together while the glue had time to set up and now I could cut a cleat also with a 45 degree on the top to made up to the 45 degree cleave in a place on the wall earlier and that is how the holder will be stored on the wall simple enough right I repeated the same exact process for all of my router beds I use the layout in the box to lay out my scrap board then turned it into a holder on this one I made sure to leave plenty of extra holes in both half inch shank size and the quarter inch size because it seems like I’m always acquiring a new router beds however when I eventually fill these up I can either keep making holders to expand left and right or I can even replace these to include more layers downward this is a very quick and easy way to organize any bit so the next time you have a few scraps that you’re tossing out take 15 minutes to make a few holders then place them near the work area you would most likely be needing them moving on c-clamps these have just been piled up on my floor like everything else so I started off by grabbing some 3/4 inch plywood cut offs from sheathing the inside of my shop I started off by making and measuring how deep a shelf would need to be to store four clamps then I measured out a triangle that size since I’ll need a few of these I rough cut my boards and squares then tape them all together to cut once over at the bandsaw next I used wood glue and screws to attach these to a backer board also made at a 3/4 inch plywood and I did use the help of two spacers to speed up the process but honestly it goes quick either way as it’s dead easy before hanging my clamps up I first did something I should have done years ago but never took the time to do see when a friend gave me these pipe clamps he made these wooden blocks for the pads they not only extend the footprint of the clamps um but they are also easier on the project when clamping down you can see he used two screws to hold each wooden pad into place which is a good idea but often the pad slips out and instead of messing with the screws any longer I applied a little bit of the type on insta bond this will permanently attach the wooden block and removes the headache of messing with keeping them under those screws I once again used a French cleat to hang up the clamp rack making sure to grab studs on this one since the clamps altogether aren’t very light and now I’m able to hang up all of my clients instead of just having them precariously about on the floor and it’s surprising to me how little room they take up when they’re actually organized up next was cord reels I have a ton of outlets around my walls which is great but I also placed outlets at every light on the ceiling so that I could eventually also have hanging cord reels over work areas in the center of my shop I went with the Rockler cord reels that are 30 feet long and has a 12 gauge wire to support any of the heavier tools I want to run I decided to place two on the wind working side and two on my metalworking side the first being right above my mobile workbench oh and one of my favorite small adjustments I’ve made just because I’ve never seen the gadget before what’s the solution to this light problem see when my bay door is open this light is just completely wasted and I wanted a way to isolate it from the rest of the lights on the circuit so that when my bay door is up I can switch it off while the others remain on and I found these remote controlled outlets on Amazon that gives me the power to do just that all I had to do was plug it into the outlet on the ceiling then plugged my light into this new out way I think that is so cool okay and the last thing I did this week before calling it done is organize the drawers of my toolbox I’m constantly needing to find a home for a lot of little things from drill bits to hair ties to Carmex to extra earbuds for my hearing protection and this rock lair drawer organization system is by far the best system that I’ve come across for this task as you can see you can pull the unit’s directly out of the box easily click them together to form individual trays that is 100% customizable by either leaving the rows empty or positioning trays or dividers to suit your individual storage needs the tray sections are actually made from a synthetic rubber so that they can flex and the benefit of this is you can actually use a pair of scissors to cut them two different links once a rubber trays are down you can leave them as is or you can customize it even further by placing plastic bins or dividers anywhere along the notches in the trays oh yeah it looks a lot better all right with that organized I’m gonna call my to-do list done like I said at the beginning of the video nothing too time-consuming and nothing too challenging but it is quite crazy how much more efficiently you can work around the shop once things are organized I will of course be continuing to evolve my shop over time and I will be showing you more updates all along the way in the meantime I hope your own shop is evolving and is a happy place for you that’s it for this one I’ll see you on my next project why are you rolling in dirt come here tell me hi papa make room for your brother come on does that is that working for you

Did you look at the new peg board made out of metal ? Its very different from the old soft peg board like you bought. I cannot recall the name of it but if you type it up on YouTube metal peg board it should come up. They also have all kinds of holders for it very different from the old style. Good luck.

Not sure if any one has said this but if you set the switch for the light above the over head door to the track so when it is all the way open it turns off and when you shot the door the light comes back on. Then you don't have to keep track of the remote, change batteries, or remember to turn it off.

Why would you mount the pegboards so high? It looks like you can't reach the top 1/4 of the pegboard. Lowering it some would allow you to use more of it. You could even use thicker material and incorporate the French Cleat into the bottom of the pegboard frame, and lower it to the height of the existing cleat rail.

Dec 12, 2018, 7:08 pm Reply

Pre-drill your holes the width of the screw shaft (not the outside of the threads) before you put a screw in… it will keep you from chewing up your bits, and keep the wood from splitting immediately or in the long run. Also, screws aren't for everything – people fall in love with them because they don't have to swing a hammer – but – nails have better sheer strength. Bang a screw from the side in a vice and it will break instantly – you'll have to bang all day on a nail to break it via metal fatigue, by bending it back and forth repeatedly. Pre-drilling a hole applies for nails too. They are both basically wedges – little log splitters.

Please keep us posted on how the Rockler cord reels work out (8:50).  I've been looking for one with heavier gauge wire like the 12-ga., and I was going to order one until I read several reviews on Amazon and on Rockler's own website.  Some reviews were positive but many were negative about how they fail in a relatively short time frame (one actually reported a fire), and the warrantee is only a year so after that you're out $100.  Love your shop!

April, I enjoy your project presentations. Now that you have discovered adding remote controlled adapters/plugs to your outlets, you should explore Sonoff devices to wire into your electrical system. These can be bought at itead.cc for half their Amazon price. Half price means twice as many. The great thing about these DIY devices is you can wire them into extension cords, or at outlets and even wall switches. They are Alexa and Google Asst supported so you can group them by room or function and turn them off remotely using a phone app or with your voice.
I like the Dual versions that use a single 110 2 wire input and allow separate controlled channel output. I used one Dual on my ceiling fans to turn off separate – by voice my ceiling fan and its light. Very cool. I wired my shop lights along with a garage door opener using them too. I can check the status of my door remotely and close it if its open and use my voice to turn off/on lights as I enter or leave. There's heavy duty versions and some with heat and moisture alerts. You can even log the power usage of your connected tools. There's even a Sonoff RF Bridge that will allow you to connect your existing remote control adapters/plugs and use the phone app as a backup to control them. Easy. The ideas and uses are endless.

You could have hung that pegboard by yourself simply by screwing scrap wood directly under where you want it, that will support the weight while screwing it in, then remove the scrap wood. I have hung large shelving units above my workbench, by first screwing in a 2×4 to support the weight while screwing in the shelves. I admit, I did get help to lift them onto the 2×4 and to hold the shelves to the wall because they were very heavy, but they were easy to hold in place with the 2×4 under them. I left the 2×4 on the wall to hang tools from.

Apr 4, 2019, 2:22 pm Reply

Thanks for the video I'm in the same situation only my tools are more plentiful andmy space as much smaller
Next time you go to hang a large frame on the wall, put a single screw sticking out of the wall so that you can go ahead and toss one corner of your frame up on that screw then you can hold the lower opposing corner until you get it level, screw it down and walk your way around the frame with a screw gun.

Damn, that was a real gut-shot when that pegboard fell and broke.

I find most information on "storage" to be pretty much useless, because what seems to be missing is the "theory of use" element; how exactly all the items should be stored to make accessing and returning them for any particular project more efficient. It seems to be an art as much as a science, and many videos don't address it much more than "put some shelves up", or "buy a toolbox".

Nice to see a video that addresses HOW items are to be accessed, rather than just WHERE they should be stored.

Awesome video! Another way to handle the light issue is to use a home smart hub like Smartthings and then a general smartthings sensor on the door. You can then have it turn the light off automatically when the door is in the open position (the sensor on the door). You already have the smart socket, just need the hub and sensor. You could even add logic around how much light is in the room or if you are even in the room. lots of cool options.

Found this video while searching for tool storage ideas. Yes, you gave me a couple great ideas, as well as links! Thank you! My takeaway, "This chick is really smart, and nice looking too!" Checked out some more of your videos – why am I not surprised you're from Texas?

I don't subscribe to channels, but I do like your videos. Even the little silly bits here and there – like dancing on top of your new workbench, LOL. Keep up the good work!

Oh yeah – one more bit. Everyone has watched one or more videos with stupid sounding robo-voices, or even human voices that are annoying as hell. You do very good work in that respect – not only is your voice pleasant, but you enunciate everything very clearly. So clearly, in fact, that I was able to spell "Rockler" into a search box after hearing you say it. Thank you, thank you, thank you! (Let's not mention that you had already posted a direct link to Rockler below the video, LOL.)

Thanks for the clamp shelf project idea, my husband and I cleaned up our garage so he could have a workshop area and we needed something to hang all his clamps. This worked great. We both enjoy your how to youtubes.  Thanks.

I feel like your peg boards are WAY too high, not allowing access to the middle to top half of the board.

In Southeastern Louisiana all my tools rusted within the first year I moved here from the deserts of California. Even precise calipers, Router bits, Forstner bits, handsaws, etc. that were in cases rusted even though they were stored inside my air-conditioned home. Condensation on cold metal was the culprit. The second problem I see with your stowage system that wouldn't work for me is all the uncovered hardware becomes covered with dust that hardens over time because the dust absorbs moisture and it has to be scrubbed off before use. I'm not criticizing, I'm pointing out to others that they have to stow according to the clime they live in. (Did I forget to mention the little spiders that seem to come from nowhere and are everywhere?)

I don't like the fiberboard pegboards The newer metals ones might work fine. If you use pegboard, once you settle on how to arrange tools, consider using a dab of hot glue to better hold the hooks to the board. I like whole 4×8 sheets of plywood filled with a pattern of regularly spaced French cleats.
