Accessory Storage Idea Thread

Post by Zalastar »

Hello Woodworkers,
This is my first post on the board as I bought a used Mark V earlier this year. Since the original purchase I have acquired quite a few accessories - Bandsaw, Router & Table, Planer, Disk sander , Belt sander, etc not to mention a plethora of smaller items (Nova Chuck, extension tables and vacuum accessories , did I say not to mention?? ;-) to compliment my Mark V.
Overall I am pleased with my collection and the Mark V system itself. I would consider myself new to woodworking but not new to working with wood as I was a commercial carpenter for almost 20 years, but I feel woodworking, such as turning a bowl, is more of an artisan craft than framing a house or building forms for foundations which is what I did. Certainly not to disparage finish carpenters as that is an art form in itself but I digress.
(TLDR) :D
My question for all of you is - How do each of you store your larger accessories when not using them if you have a smaller work space?
I am looking for suggestions to maximize my work area so any tips, tricks or cool mounting ideas are appreciated.
:confused:
Things I need out of the way
Bandsaw
Jointer
TableSaw extensions and Tables

Thank you all for your time in advance

Michael

Here is a link to a thread showing what I did.
It has served me well and I really like it. Best part is I can roll it up next to my Shopsmith for transferring the (heavy) planer.

Mountainbreeze has a nice solution. I also like the red cabinet shown in the first thread below (modified from Woodsmith plans). I might build one of these one day. Also some interesting ideas in the 2nd thread as well:

Wow great ideas. I didn't know Shopsmith had a Planer! Looks like I'm going shopping again :-)

Use this link https://www.shopsmith.com/ and browse the catalog. While there, browse the entire web site. We just can not have you not knowing what is available to complete your shop.

I use a recessed shelf cut in the wall. I just lean the SPT's against the outer wall. It adds space but does noting for my HVAC bills.

My large accessories sit up on a shelf I made and mounted on the wall. The shelf is mounted high enough so the Shopsmith rolls under it for storage.

The small accessories and parts go into a small rollaround cabinet I made.

The planer lives on its own mount with wheels to drive it around the shop as needed.

I dunno, Bill. How can we be sure that is really your efficient storage solution, and not just some pic that you found on the internet? :D

Check the license plates. One of them can be checked on the FCC website or the ARRL website :D
