Extremely Average #199: Top 7 Things I Hate About Top 10 Lists

07-20-2010 03:51 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, 198 days ago, I posted my first blog post. It was a bit if a lark, but then a bunch of people left some really nice comments. It spurred me on to write more. Which I did. After a while I bought my own domain. And over the last 30 days, over 4100 different people have stopped in to read my drivel. It all began right here on LJ. I really appreciate all the encouragement everyone has given me. I wanted to share some good news here first. I have just been accepted to be ...

Picture Frames #2: progress

09-22-2010 09:02 PM by Camper | 2 comments »

I had a little more time to work on the picture frames. Now cut to final dimensions and mitered. The pictures are below. I think the miters turned out pretty decent (better than I expected for a first timer). I used a miter cutting jig by Niki which is fairly easy to make. I had my suspicions that the jig was not built well but proved myself wrong. The frame clamping strap from woodcraft for $1.75 works great!! :) I also applied some danish oil on half of a scrap piece and there is a...

A new workbench #2: Cutting all that wood

08-23-2011 08:33 PM by Murdock | 2 comments »

I finally got around to finalizing a design so I could begin cutting the wood. I started by purchasing 2 sheets of 3/4 sanded ply and 7 2×8 fir boards, I will also be using some MDF I had on hand. “Bench in Potentia” After a new TS blade and a whole lot of ripping I went from a stack of a few boards to a stack of more smaller boards. I then put together the 2 end assemblies, this is where I made my first mistake. I have 3 different widths of boards I cut out ...

Building My Roubo Bench #5: Finishing the Top

02-12-2012 03:37 AM by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

I had previously finished laminating the two halves that would make up the top. I made two 12” wide sections, ran each through the planer to smooth and true up the tops and bottoms, and ran each mating edge across the jointer. And as I wrote in the previous blog entry, one of the halves already has the finished wagon vise built into it. The two halves were now all done and ready to be glued. It was tricky maneuvering the two parts in the final glue up, as each section was heav...
