Shop Projects and Jigs

As you build your workshop you'll need effective ways to organize your "stuff", and home-made shop furniture is one of the best ways to satisfy this need. Not only do you get to practice techniques necessary for your "real" projects, but you can build custom designed pieces to meet your requirements as no purchased item can. It's also inevitable that you'll occasionally need to make a jig to complete a project from time to time. In the links below you can view some of the shop projects and jigs that I've tackled.
