  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Starting with a blank slate, we created a dream shop with down-to-earth ideas you can apply in your shop.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    The double-width workbench raises large projects up to eye level for easier assembly.  

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Our shop builders place many of the tools they use most frequently in easy reach. An outlet hanging from the ceiling provides power to portable tools. Angled windows, like the one behind Chuck, help keep equipment noise from reaching offices just outside.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Counters store benchtop tools and provide assembly or clamping work space. The clamps sit in customized wood holders.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Each of the stationary tools feeds dust into the collection system, including the radial-arm saw with a wall-mounted chute. The system's floor sweep is shown to the right.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Wire shelves keep lumber flat and out of the way. Panels ride on a cart that's easy to relocate as space needs change.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    A grille above the closet that houses the dust-collection system allows air to circulate back into the shop.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Wall-hung cabinets sport acrylic paneled doors for ease in locating the needed bit or tool at a glance.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Plywood carcases with solid-hardwood face frames and doors with acrylic panels create inexpensive storage cabinets.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Clamps, clamps, and more clamps. With three craftsmen often working in the shop at the same time, we need a boatload of clamps.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    A workbench with ample lighting above works great when using benchtop tools such as the mortiser and strip sander shown.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    This cabinet is devoted strictly to drilling and drill-press accessories.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Three tall cabinets house screws and hardware on the bottom and hand and portable power tools above.


  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Our mobile tool cabinet provides additional storage for lathe tools, fasteners, and measuring tools.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Drop-down tool trays mount under the cabinets for streamlined storage.

  • Welcome to the WOOD Magazine Workshop

    Our central dust-collection system is hooked up to most machines in the shop. Gates are used to close off machines not in use.
