Prototyping a Modular Tool Storage Idea

I needed a way to store benchtop power tools in the mobile woodshop without taking up any bench space. I thought it would be cool to use the e-track welded to the walls in the trailer to create a modular power tool storage system.

It’s really only necessary because we need to have space to pull the car in the trailer. During travel they need to be locked in place otherwise a french cleat system would have worked.

What do you think? Is there a simpler way to accomplish this?

Our DREAM Mobile Workshop Is Happening!

Huge news…Lark United Trailers has agreed to help us build the ultimate mobile workshop from scratch! This is obviously very exciting, but we also want to make sure we think of everything possible BEFORE they start construction.

If you could build your dream mobile workshop, what features would you include? How would you organize it? How would you modify the trailer itself to be more comfortable to work in?

We Bought an RV!

It’s getting serious…We just dropped 32 grand on a 1999 Monaco Dynasty! Here’s a quick tour of the RV showing some of the things we like about it and a few of the necessary repairs.

We’re happy with our choice. Everything is really well built…solid cherry cabinets, instant hot water, corian countertops etc.
