It seems that a woodworker and the DIY homeowner are never truly finished with his
or her workshop or home. A woodworkers workshop and a house are often ongoing projects
that never end. We may get by with what we have, for the time being, but theres always
something that could use improvement if its even just a personal want and not a need.
Well, the Dogwood Tales workshop is no different.
Follow me along with the latest plans for a woodworking workshop with projects from
simple workshop jig plans to a workshop floor plan. I'll even share some free workshop
plans with some of these workshop projects. Along with that I will share my own home
improvement and home ec ideas and projects for my own home and some things I do for
customers as well.
What do I have planned for the My Workshop segment of this website?
Workshop floor plans and the best workshop plans include efficient workshop storage.
That means we need things like adequate workshop wall cabinets. These cabinets are
essential for an organized storage system of your workshop items that make them easy
to get out when needed and, just as important, easy to put away. After all, if its
not easy to put the item away, then theres an increased temptation to just leave
it out. This results in extra clutter around the workshop possibly adding tripping
hazards not safe! Additionally, if an unneeded tool is left out not only is there
an increased risk of personal injury to you, but of that tool getting damaged by
getting knocked off the workbench or something of that nature.
My workshop was originally just a one car garage in the basement of my house, so
when I developed my first set of plans for a woodworking workshop I had to develop
some efficient garage plans with workshop . Some of what I have developed for my
workshop was inspired by the much admired New Yankee Workshop (I mean, come on, who
doesn't admire that?). Up until now my workshop layout has worked well for me, but
it needs improvement to optimize the available floor space and to allow me to work
more efficiently as a home based woodworking business.
What are you working on or have planned for your workshop?
As I said at the top, a woodworkers workshop is never truly finished. I have many
ideas in store for the workshop segment of my web site and look forward to sharing
the adventure with you. As iron sharpens iron, so man sharpens his fellow man. With
that thought in mind any woodworker can always help and be helped by another woodworker.
So please stay tuned to my workshop page and let me know what you're working on in
your workshop FOR your workshop and lets have fun working on our workshops together!
What do I have planned for the Home Ec Projects segment of this website?
Just like a workshop, a home is never really ever finished. There's always something
that you will want to do, if not need to do. A new paint job in that old bathroom,
fixing that creaking floor board, new storage ideas for small homes ... the list
goes on. Join me on my journey into homeowner storage solutions, home improvement
projects, and home ec solutions. You will find information on how to save money by
doing simple things like making your own laundry detergent, cleaning and repairing
a dishwasher, and more!
