EASY shop organization with a 3d printer

EASY shop organization with a 3d printer

What’s the most valuable tool in YOUR shop??
I guess a better title may have been “the most versatile shop tool in my shop” but oh well. I think you get the point.
3D printers are becoming much more approachable these days. They aren’t just for nerds printing bust of super heroes or cheap knock off Pokémon anymore (Don’t be confused, I’m one of them too). I thought I’d take some time to show some of you how a 3d printer can be used in a wood shop.
Now I could make a feature film on all the different things you can print for a wood shop and I have a hard enough time entertaining you for 10 minutes so I stuck to a fast paced, mostly quick, overview.
I hope you enjoy it. As always, thank you for sticking with me even if it was out of pity. ❤

    You keep saying the 3d printing community is filled with smart people. Yet im in the 3d printing community. So obviously you are wrong.

  2. bjk12385 on October 2, 2023 at 8:36 pm

    First time seeing one of your videos. Bro….epic beard!

  3. Busted Knuckle Woodworks on October 2, 2023 at 8:38 pm

    Nice viddy. One question — these files you speak of, are they free? You don’t really make it clear in the video 🙃

  4. Five Duck Studio on October 2, 2023 at 8:39 pm

    Love it! Now I have to go get my 3D printer out of a moving box and try to remember how to put the thing back together. 😂

  5. Felix Hernandez on October 2, 2023 at 8:40 pm

    There is PLA filament that has real wood fibers, like walnut, bamboo, ebony. You can sand it and stain it.

  6. Karaon on October 2, 2023 at 8:40 pm

    Did you have a try on making featherboard for your table saw? My neighbour has 3 printers but they’re resin based or something. Do you think it’s a good idea?

  7. Conor Stewart on October 2, 2023 at 8:41 pm

    You could also get wood filament (sawdust mixed with PLA) and mix both woodworking and 3D printing, print it out of the wood filament and then sand and stain it.

  8. Raptorator on October 2, 2023 at 8:43 pm

    Hmm I like this guy. DIY woodworker here and just got my 1st 3D printer. Thanks for the cool ideas and presentation.

  9. Slurgical's Sol Tenebris 3D Channel on October 2, 2023 at 8:43 pm

    Not just the shop too. Custom parts for things around the house that costs $100+ to replace because they broke. Saved so far around $1200 by designing and printing replacement parts. Printer paid for itself.

  10. Steve Bell Creates on October 2, 2023 at 8:46 pm

    Great video Jason your making me think again about a 3D printer it’s an itch that might just need a good scratching

  11. samantha titze on October 2, 2023 at 8:49 pm

    I have absolutely no use for a 3d printer…at least I didn’t think so until I watched this video! ***Adds to Amazon cart***

  12. The Glow Cloud on October 2, 2023 at 8:54 pm

    I’m so tired of epoxy river tables 😭 is the demand for them that strong from the rich yuppie community?

  13. Crafty at Heart on October 2, 2023 at 8:55 pm

    Awesome job Jason!! I have so many things I want to print😅😅😅 too many!

  14. The Swedish Maker on October 2, 2023 at 9:00 pm

    The glue daddy caddy is a stroke of genius!

  15. Spencley Design Co. on October 2, 2023 at 9:00 pm

    if I can figure out how to use a 3D printer… ANYONE CAN!

  16. The Weekend Woodshop on October 2, 2023 at 9:01 pm

    Great video Jason! I don’t have my own 3D printer but I do have access and I have made a few things for my shop. I think you’re right, a 3D printer absolutely has a place in the wood shop. Keep up the great work!

  17. RoseKindred on October 2, 2023 at 9:01 pm

    My best print for the home shop was PVC pipe connectors. Did not need them for liquids, just to build a frame. The local store was 3.50 each and I needed about 2 dozen. Instead I 3D printed " X " type where the pipe slides over for roughly 0.08 each.

  18. Corey Davoll on October 2, 2023 at 9:01 pm

    Great video!!! Will your printer still print in monochrome if you run out of yellow, magenta, or cyan?

  19. SpartanOpsPB on October 2, 2023 at 9:03 pm

    The Algorithm sent me here. Your editing style is fun. Glad to see someone else getting 3D printing information to the masses.

  20. Greg's Workshop on October 2, 2023 at 9:03 pm

    Damn it. Now I need to buy a 3D printer for my already crowded workshop.

  21. David Reyna on October 2, 2023 at 9:04 pm

    Awesome video man

  22. Inland Wood & Resin - Artist & Crafter on October 2, 2023 at 9:04 pm

    The school I worked at last year had a few dozen printers. Those kids were making all sorts of cool stuff. I may/may not have gotten a few of my kiddos scheduled in a class just so I could tinker with them

  23. F. Kieran Finney on October 2, 2023 at 9:04 pm

    Plastic is horrible for the environment.
    Get a CNC and stick with wood. It grows back.

  24. qwerty zxaszc on October 2, 2023 at 9:07 pm

    Thank you. I have been circling printers and you helped me take the plunge

  25. Slurgical's Sol Tenebris 3D Channel on October 2, 2023 at 9:07 pm

    I agree with you on every point, I would just add, manage your expectations. Environment affects 3D printing, my settings for printing are different in summer than they are in winter because the works space I use. So for the 3D printing newbie, just be patient, try a few things and don’t give up, once you figure out your printer setting that fits your environment you are golden.

    Awesome video, I was a finish carpenter for a few years and made tons of gigs in wood. A 3D printer would have saved years 🙂

  26. The New Cranky Workshop on October 2, 2023 at 9:08 pm

    Awesome video but that Lee dude seems shady 🤨

  27. Jason Grissom on October 2, 2023 at 9:08 pm

    News from AnyCubic. They just announced the Kobra 2 Pro. If you are looking for a smarter, faster printer for just 279. Probably consider that one.

  28. The Snekker Show on October 2, 2023 at 9:14 pm

    Great video, and spot on. I don’t have nearly as much time for woodworking as I’d like, so I picked up a Bambu X1C earlier this year so I could automate some production and free up some time. Now I have two X1Cs and no time for woodworking. I probably need a CNC to balance things out.

  29. PilotGT on October 2, 2023 at 9:14 pm

    great video, thanks for posting!

  30. Karaon on October 2, 2023 at 9:14 pm

    i love the hungry reference at the end

  31. Angie Williams on October 2, 2023 at 9:16 pm

    I worked at a MakerSpace and used the 3D printers there more often than I thought I would. Usually it was to make some sort of jig or something to help my woodworking. I made paint/finish triangles and right angle brackets a lot. Such a fun job. I was able to get my son involved and he loved the 3D printers. Now that he’s 15 he’s been saving for his own. THe MakerSpace is a little too far for us to travel to often. But picking the right one… was something I wasn’t sure about. We had Ultimakers and those are way out of the price range. Glad you recommended one.

    solid thumbnail

  33. Dude Sawdust on October 2, 2023 at 9:22 pm

    Are you like me? You have a list of tools you want/need and are slowly chipping away at that list from most needed on down? 3D printer is definitely on that list, and after watching your video it just bumped up a few spots. Nice video. Keep ‘‘em coming👍😎

  35. CyberBob City on October 2, 2023 at 9:27 pm

    I won’t lie… I a little part of me died inside seeing your paper towel holder screwed to your French cleat wall! The nerve! You need to put that thing on a cleat and use my bottom flush mount cleat locks to lock it on. It’s also a free 3d printed download along with my swiveling cleat locks that are perfect for your French cleat wall.


  36. boomerangfreak on October 2, 2023 at 9:29 pm

    one huge thing you missed out on are router templates.
    Being able to design your own templates and print them out accurately is a god send. It opens up a whole world of things you can make.
    That and other types of tooling are great. Not tools but just things that can help you out with other tools.

    Need a 90degree adapter for your sander, pretty sure you can find and 3D print one for just about any sander you want. No more wonky edges!!!

  37. DaJugnaut studios on October 2, 2023 at 9:32 pm

    Another great video my dude! Now you got me thinking about swapping out my 3D printer
