Here is the remainder of the yellow pine that I need for my workbench. I had decided to give this thing legs and a skirt (hmm, sounds bad I know – hey maybe it’s a Scottish bench? LOL). The 2 X 12 was for the skirts on the front and the back, and the 2 X 8’s were for leg stretchers. I had 6 pieces of center ripped 2 X 10’s left over from making the top that I could use to make the legs. Still deciding whether to make a regular workbench or stay with my original plan of...
I’m now down the home stretch and getting ever closer to the finish line. I will say this I have really enjoyed this little project so far. I have learned some new ways of thinking about how to make designs work together. !! This is a dry run so I still have the glue up to do and finish to apply.
Tonight I decided to attack the scooping of the seat. I had some concerns when Betsy reminded me about the pocket screws. The first thing I did was to determine how much, if any, room I had to scoop. Using a scrap piece of board and a freshly drilled pocket hole I estimated I had around 1/8 “ to play with. Great . . . now how do I scoop. Hmmmm. After I sketched the scooping on the seat I took out my Mastercraft (Canadian Tire store brand) plunge router and ½ straight bit. I set the p...
Greetings, fellow LJs. I have a puzzle that needs a solution. I built a workbench that I particularly want to roll into place for TS outfeed. I hope to soon delineate the steps taken and justify decisions to help the next guy not do so much planning. The “opportunity” before me goes like this: I have a very nice solid core door for the workbench top and a piece of hardboard for the sacrificial top. After reading the “two-sided tape” tip several times, I bought a roll. ...
Hello fellow Lumberjock, I just wanted to inform you that while I was looking for plans to build a shaving horse I came across this really great website for those of us who work with woods and metals. www.craftsmanspace.com I hope that you’ll check it out and that it will become a useful resource for you. Take care.
I recently acquired a few pieces of Corian. I want to glue up some Peppermill blanks, but not sure what glue to use. Any suggestions?
I got a 8’ 1” x 10” board and cut 2-14” sections and 2-26 1/2” sections. I ripped one of the 26 1/2” boards 3” in to create the top lid. After nailing the pieces together I was about to work on getting proper dimensions for the interior drawers. I decided before finished the day off I would make a test drawer. I created the front, back and both walls. I then decided I would make them box joint together and it worked out very well, since it was my firs...
It’s been a while since I found anything of interest at the local saturday flea market. Although every trip is somewhat exciting for me, since I bought the Millers Falls drill a few months ago. I am still amazed at the thought of, and of actually, using a tool that is half a century older than I am. Around two weeks ago we decided to visit again just to look around. Me and my girlfriend were chatting about the things she bought when I saw a fine looking knob jutting out from a pil...
