Roubo-ish work bench #3: Stretchers

05-14-2017 04:18 PM by galooticus | 2 comments »

Ah, stretchers. These were made from douglas 4×4s—the B-stock pieces that didn’t make the cut when laminating the top. Compared to the leg-top tenons, this stage was a breeze. As I mentioned in the last blog post, I ditched my old bench and am working entirely on the new bench from this point on. First things first, I put in a single dog hole so I could make use of a hold fast. This is the first time using anything other than irwin quick clamps for workholding. So muc...

Roubo-ish work bench #2: Legs

05-14-2017 03:38 PM by galooticus | 2 comments »

OK, I left off last time with laminated top, but no legs for it to stand on. The legs are from 4×8 stock; the same old douglas fir: My intention from the beginning was to do the roubo-style double tenons, with the front tenon being some sort of dovetail like thing. I decided to go tenons (tails?) first, then mark the mortises in the top using each individual tenon. To find the tenon length, I measured the thickness of the top and added around 1/8” for fudge room. I agoni...

Woodworking as Therapy

05-14-2017 01:57 PM by Bravesst | 7 comments »

Allow me to introduce myself to Lumberjocks. I’m Mike and I’m a retired FDNY captain, been through lots of stuff, and about a year ago I got reconnected to woodworking. In the early nineties, I managed to put a small shop together with just some basic tools and skills, and I actually designed and cranked out a few pieces that I still use in my home today. I’d learned everything pretty much from books and magazines. Fast forward to 2016 and the magic of the internet. I’...

Tree sap harvest pegs / spiles & rebuild hand cranked augers.

05-13-2017 10:57 PM by mafe | 12 comments »

Tree sap harvest pegs / spiles & rebuild hand cranked augers. Simple pegs for harvesting birch sap from recycled wood and hand cranked drill bits from old auger bits. Beech parts from a trashed wine rag gets new life.Just turning as I go, no plan just tapered to app. the same size, so it will fit the drill size and a head that will allow one to tie a bottle or bucket to the peg, or make a hole in the side of the bottle that fits over it. Just play around as I said, don’t f...

I ended up stacking it on top of some filing cabinets that I ripped of a desk that was being thrown away. both units have plywood tops.If you enjoyed this video, then consider subscribing to the channel.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1834: Lots of Fun and New Projects!

05-13-2017 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am finding that the greater amount of time between blogs is directly related to the amount of information that I want to share with you all. But that would follow common sense, wouldn't it? It seems that it is harder for me than I originally thought to get back in the habit of posting each morning or nearly every morning. I just can't get back in the rhythm of things. But I am doing my best, and that is what I can offer. As usual, things have been moving fast and furious a...

Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser #9: Progress! Keelson, Stem, and Transom

05-13-2017 02:41 AM by AlTriolo | 4 comments »

I got to work for six hours today and accomplished a lot! Here’s where I left off. Getting there took some hard work. I started by shaving frames 8-13 to receive the curve of the keelson as the bow rises. In addition to these random photos, I also used a pull saw and random orbital sander. Each frame got the treatment at least twice. One frame got five passes. Next was to get set up for the transom. I cut the keelson to the correct angle and cut a guild to be placed...
