Floating Shelf Behind My Wood Lathe / Tablette flottante derrière mon tour à bois

Une fois encore une nouvelle idée m’a traversée l’esprit pour maximiser l’espace de mon atelier,  et ainsi me rendre la vie plus facile.

Once again a new idea came across my mind to maximize my workshop space, thus making my life easier.

Je fixe deux montants parallèles au solive.

I attach two parallel uprights to the ceiling joist.

Ensuite une traverse perpendiculaire à l’extrémité inférieure de chaque montant, placée vers le second montant.

Then a perpendicular rail on the lower end of each upright, towards the second upright.

Tel que montré, je dépose une tablette grillagée normalement utilisée dans les penderies.

As shown, I drop a wire shelf usually used in closets.

Une attache de câble coaxial à chaque extrémité pour l’assujettir.

A coaxial cable clip on each end to secure it.

Cette tablette utilise l’espace inutile au-dessus la table de sortie de mon banc de scie.

That shelf exploits the wasted space above my table saw outfeed table.

Derrière mon tour à bois, mes accessoires principaux sont maintenant à portée de main.

Behind my wood lathe, my primary accessories are now within arm’s reach.

    Good idea … I too have a small shop and appreciate any ideas for better usage. Oh, and we both need a bigger shop (lol)


  2. It’s a great idea for extra space but I cannot see how it fits over your saw’s outfield area?

      You’ll have to get back to the pictures to observe my table saw’s outfeed table (MDF), which is right under the wire shelf, the outfeed table being surrounded by the table saw, a the lathe and a router table. The lathe dust collection is also suspended above that outfeed table, as described on this post (link). This latter being suspended on chains rather than wooden uprights (2″X3″) as I did for the wire shelf.
      Hope I was clear enough this time.

    So cool to use a wire shelf and let items like the chucks slide down between them. Now I gotta ask, what do use the tennis ball and toilet plungers for?

      Both are used as jam chuck and some day you’ll see them in action right here on my blog!
      The wire shelf is also great because it can’t collect dust and chips and you can see through, therefore not blocking the view.
