Workaround Workshop

Hi everybody

Long time between drinks, as they say, but I have been busy giving my daughter away in marriage

I could have sold her on e-bay but she declined

Anyhoo, thought I would just share a few simple, cheap (read frugal) ideas with you.

If you are a regular here...thank you. Be aware that I started this blog to share all sorts of stuff. Not rocket science but the sort of stuff I like people sharing with me.

If you are new here...welcome and feel free to look around. All sorts of stuff here in the form of hints, tips, toys, crafts, recipes, workshop stuff, how to's etc etc.

Today is a quick buzz around my workshop just to show how you can reuse just about any old stuff.

Firstly, a shelf for storage made from scrap ply and 4 x 2. Useful smile

Next, a rickety old cupboard becomes, erm, a rickety old cupboard with my stuff in rolleyes

The inside of old fridges are used to store all sorts of useful stuff in the workshop.

Even old fridge doors can be used with rub-off pens for important messages eek

Note the old pencil sharpener thingy mounted near the top right hand corner.

I do not have pictures of them but the fridges have all been used as cupboards. Seem to have rescued many fridges from the local tip and from friends.

This old freezer has a piece of customwood attached and makes a great workbench. The tabletop workmate is attached to a base that folds up when not in use. Saves space cool

Never underestimate the use of the framework in your shed/workshop. Here I store some of my clamps.

Who doesn't have a set of drawers with all their nails and screws in?

An old filing cupboard stores my power tools inside and my dremel attachments are attached to the door. Fridge magnets keep track of vital information on projects and the like lol

Finally, stuck onto a recycled door to my storage area are 2 charts. One is a conversion chart, the other is a blade chart listing the various sizes and order details for my scrollsaw blades.

Well, that's it for now. See you again soon biggrin

Regards, Doc wink
