I built a long stretch of open-faced bins on top of my miter saw station for quick access tool storage. But not everyone has that much space to dedicate to tool storage. So here’s a super easy solution that you can implement for your tools. (click the image)

The Rocket Factory

Super easy take on sharpening saw blades with a diamond wheel. I never would have thought about something this simple.

Hergun Yeni

This gives new meaning to “tool kit.” From what I’ve seen it’s not incredibly expensive either. I wonder how it would hold up long-term though. It might be a perfect solution to those of you without a dedicated shop space.

John Heisz

This is a good one by John from a few months ago. I recently dug it up to share with someone else on an easy way to make drawer pulls. The pulls are around the 7:30 mark in the video. Regardless of the pulls though, the video is great.

Ron Paulk

Ron seems to be the king of efficiency and working smart. Here’s a neat tip for making your own low profile hose clamps.

Steve Carmichael

Steve always brings a ton of positive energy with his videos. He recently made a really sweet R2-D2 bird house for Star Wars Day. Check it out!

Jimmy Tips #7. All about the drill press (and drills). Experience is sometimes the best tool to have and Jimmy shares a lot of it in his Jimmy Tips videos. Lots to learn from this guy.

Matthew Cremona

We’ve all seen live edge furniture but I think this is the first live face piece I’ve seen.

Drunken Woodworker

I recently made a trip to Michigan to visit family and friends and of course do a little work while up there. David from DrunkenWoodworker.com happens to live about an hour away from my Dad’s house so I thought it would be good to stop by and hang out for a bit. David is a super cool dude and definitely worth following in my opinion. The next couple videos are from him. The first one is an interview with him and I in case you missed it.

The second is a really awesome coffee cabinet he just completed right before I got there. Having seen this in person I can tell you that the final project looks top-notch. Really well done. He also did a phenomenal job on editing the video.

  1. Jay, that Clamptite tool that Ron Paulk demonstrates is actually the exact tool I was looking for just yesterday for making my own hose pipe clamps/jubilee clips. I spent ages trying to “invent” a tool that already exists, so was amazed this morning to see it showcased here.

    Tomorrow I need to pick up a cheapo rotary tool/Dremel knock off to cut the slots in some ali tube, which appears to be the most difficult part in making your own, I now have an overwhelming NEED for one of those!

    Cheers for the heads-up!
