Maple bench with Lyptus frame.

Just figured out I can post pics here too! Zowie! What a fantastic place LJ is!

I included one box joint pic that is unglued and unpinned – warts and all. As you can see, they aren’t as tight as I would like. My inexperience for sure here. I had to put some sawdust/glue in to fill the gaps. It turned out ok though, as the pins really made it solid as a rock.

My dad was a carpenter for years. Unfortunately, it doesn’t pass via genetics. I didn’t learn the trade from him. I’m slogging through learning as I go. One thing I did learn from him was covering up my mistakes so it ‘looks’ good.

Thanks for viewing and requesting pics.

Ok, here’s the bench and some of the shop. It’s a bit of a mess. I’ve been building the bench in hopes of consolidating all the ‘stuff’ into drawers underneath – when I finish that part that is.

the plan is to move out the table behind the bench and put the bench in that general area.

Wonderful shop with lot’s of fine tools. Those are beautiful workbenches. You have a great setup.

Ron, this is a nice looking shop that you have. And that is a gorgeous bench that you have added to your shop. Any of us would be proud to have a tool like this to work with.

Your woodworking journey sounds a lot like my own. When I was younger my father, a third generation carpenter, wanted to teach me his trade. But, of course, since I was much smarter then (or so I thought) I really could see no need to learn his “trade secrets”. Like you I am now having to learn it own my own.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed touring your shop.

Ron, this is a nice shop and after seeing your blog about the violin I know that you are a man that knows how to use his tools. Congratulations.
