A Bench for My Uncle #5: The Seat Back

12-08-2012 08:25 AM by Aaron McCain | 4 comments »

Once the rails were done, it was time to move onto building the back of the seat so that all of the components could be glued together. The design calls for tenons to be cut on each end of the back slats to fit into a groove cut into the top of the back bottom rail and the bottom of the back top rail. I didn’t get any pictures of that process. I used a table saw and it was more difficult that I expected. In the end I decided that I should have cut the groove before I shaped the top ...

Woodworking Shop

11-04-2012 11:06 PM by MWGreg | 10 comments »

Hi everyone, This is a cool website. Well I just would like to join you all in sharing what I have going on. This is the beginning of my dream shop. Been waiting for this for over twenty years. The main shop will measure 24’ x 30’. An 8’ wide porch will go down the length of the left side, half of which will be enclosed and accessible from the main section. I’m having an Amish contractor build it. I was very fortunate that they dug the holes and got the posts set an...

Simple Band Saw Fence

11-01-2012 03:37 AM by arco21 | 9 comments »

I decided it was high time I quit clamping a piece of wood to my bandsaw table whenever I needed a fence, and upgraded to something more easily adjustable. Based on a design for a drill press fence in a recent Woodsmith Small Shops book, I came up with this cleat style fence. I used 2×4’s for the front and back rails, putting the 45 degree angle on them with my table saw. I bolted them to the existing threads on my bandsaw’s fence. The fence is a piece of cherry, and t...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #10: End Caps and Wagon Vise

08-13-2012 09:27 PM by Mauricio | 23 comments »

Back again friends, Ok, the next step is the make a wagon vise out of this screw I got from Lee Valley. Thanks to PurpLev for the inspiration on his blog:http://lumberjocks.com/PurpLev/blog/17919 First I jointed one side of the boards for the end caps then ran it through the thickens planner, etc… Next since the wood in the wagon vise recess had warped since being cut I had to trim some wood off using my #78, #92, and a chisel. I even used the front bullnose portion of the 78...

Vintage Tool Rehab Projects #2: Disston #4 backsaw rehab-Part 2-Sharpening, testing and adding to tool kit

04-10-2011 03:50 PM by Brad | 12 comments »

I’ll be honest. The thought of sharpening all those little teeth, with their attendant geometries has always intimidated me. But so did tuning my first Stanley Bailey Type 11 smoother. And what I’ve learned from tuning my planes is that I understand my tools and the way they shape the wood on a much more intimate level. And that’s made me a better woodworker. I wanted to have that same understanding for my handsaws. And I wanted to have the confidence and skill to sharpen...

Super Glide Recycled Roubo Workbench #4: Wagon Vise w/ drawer glides

05-14-2012 01:28 AM by WheelsAF | 4 comments »

Here is my wagon vise. It is pretty standard in that I used a Lee-Nielsen vise screw. The innovative part is using 8” full-extension drawer glides to ensure smooth travel. Here is an over all look from the bottom of the bench with the chop not yet installed. You can see I used some spacers between the chop and the drawer glide; I did this in the hope that I can keep some of the debris from interferring with the glide mechanism. You can see that I set up the wagon vise opening in...

Tool Chest #2: Starting the Shell

05-02-2012 02:44 AM by CartersWhittling | 13 comments »

Hello. I happened to have little work today, so I had time to do some work on the tool chest. A few weeks ago I had skip planed all the parts for the shell, and some of the oak. Skip planing is simply using a heavy set plane to remove the twist and warpage in a board. Thats all. You do not use a try plane or smoother at this point. By skip planing the lumber before hand, the lumber has a second chance to warp if it has to, since there was fresh wood removed from both faces. Now a...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #10: Backside of a Carcase

05-02-2012 03:55 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 24 comments »

Whatever was selected for the backing material of this cabinet needed to add strength, look good and be 1/2” thick. Plywood meets two out of three of those requirements, but I just can’t fall in love with the idea of plywood in my tool till. Biggest hurdle with any other material is the work I might have to do to get it to that 1/2” thickness. I checked the remaining inventory of poplar (says Don W, and he should know) boards salvaged from somewhere, some time ago. This s...

Saw Talk #10: Hand Shaping and Sharpening the Teeth on a Backsaw

03-23-2012 01:44 AM by Brit | 64 comments »

You know I said at the end of my last post that I’d post a picture of each saw and tell you how I was going to sharpen them and why? Well I lied. :-) The temptation of my restored backsaws, a saw vise and a bundle of saw files was just too much. I had to sharpen a saw, but which one? I thought about it for a while and settled on the little Spear & Jackson 8” Dovetail saw. Remember this one? I chose it for two reasons: For a dovetail saw, the depth of cut is quite big at 50mm. ...
