My Messy Shop


My shop has more tools than room, and it is almost impossible to keep straight.

I installed a shelf on the bottom of my  Jet 16x42 and placed a chest with 8 drawers on it.

Now I have room to keep handy tools right where they are needed.

               

I also added a hinged table that extends from the lathe ways and can be lowered (at right) or up (at left). Both the table extension and the chest are a great convenience.

The chest is from Mobile Distribution Supply of Memphis, Tennessee.

Instructions to make a folding table extension are in another blog.
