Organizing a woodshop in one Saturday

An organized woodshop saves time and money.

Early on a Saturday morning, distinctive telltale sounds that would perk up any woodworker’s ears were wafting down my street. First the short wind-up of an electric motor, then the sound of a blade cutting wood, then a short wind-down and silence. Seconds later, the exact sounds repeated… and then again. I’ve been woodworking long enough to not only know the sound, but to know the blade wasn’t sharp… and the brand of miter saw.

Where could that be coming from? I don’t know everyone in the neighborhood, but I should know any other woodworkers. Curiosity took over and I struck out, intent on finding the source of that sweet sawing sound. But the repetitive cutting stopped and there was no longer a beacon of sound to follow. Fortunately I spied an open garage door. That was the place.

The woodshop was a crowded corner in the back of the garage. Along the back wall were several tall plastic storage cabinets.
