    A few quick shop fixtures projects

    I am in the final stages of getting my new shop unpacked, organized and set up. I have been working on, plywood storage, clamp storage and router table dust collection solutions.
    First up is what I refer to as a “plywood storage crib”. Just a very simple set up from materials I had laying around and some reclaimed pine from an old bed frame. Just enough to keep the sheet goods from toppling over.

    Next is a roll around clamp storage cart. The cart has three spacious shelves and plenty of room for all my clamping and assembly goodies.

    Last is a very crude but effective under the table dust collection solution for my router table. I literally threw this together using a pet food bucket, metal duct tape and ¼” ply.

    Daddy’s helper Kayla, loves to vacuum around the shop 

    Nice jigs and fixtures. See you saved the best fixture for last!

    Great fixtures Dewayne. That is the cutest and most sophisticated vacuum accessory I have ever seen. I hear they can be quite expensive but, worth every penny

    Good stuff! Wish I had room for that clamp rack and the clamps to go with it,

    Great looking additions to the shop. That router cover would work really well for me now that I've got a remote switch on mine.

    Good stuff, Dewayne. I like the simple but effective DC setup for the router. (Although I read somewhere that yellow buckets have the best suction.)

    Oh the Yellow Buckets of Texas da de dum dum.

    That shop is going to be so neat that you will be afraid to use it. Isn't it fun to organize/reorganize a shop.

    Enjoy it!!!


    If my vacuum cleaner was that great looking, I would be cleaning the shop all of the time.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Do you have any plans for the clamp rack or do a design/build?
