In another time, in another life I will have the space and the need for the type of cabinet maker’s workbench we see displayed in these forums. Until then I am confined to a smallish basement. Let me clarify that smallish means roughly 12’ square with a 7’ ceiling and a sloped floor that is home to a sump pit that takes up a 24” diameter cover as well as the piping to to expel the water above grade. Toss in some shelves for tools and paint cans, a table saw, a chest fr...

So I have decided I am far enough along to make a workbench or more importantly I have gotten to a point where I notice a lot of situations where a bench would make my woodworking life way easier. The problem is two fold though, one I design everything I make and in this case am of coarse going to do the same thing and two I tend to go “redneck” with my shop projects. So I am throwing it out to all my Lumberjock pals, go with a bench such as a Rubio. Or to go redneck, using con...

Those of you who have read The Anarchist's Tool Chest may find the following story familiar. It was only after this project was underway that I realized that my life had strangely paralleled author Christopher Schwarz’s for a moment. It’s morning. My wife and I are starting the day: sipping coffee, stirring oatmeal and wondering whether we should wake our nearly three year old. Our eleven month old is keeping us company in the kitchen of our 1 1/2 bedroom apartment. She is sitt...
I recently got back into woodworking after being laid off from a job that required so much travel that I couldn’t fit any shop time into my life. It’s been about four years since I have completed a project and in between job interviews (I’m flying to Kansas City for one on Friday), I’m building myself a few new work stations, jigs, and tools that I will need to take a crack at building some of my own furniture. First up, I needed a workbench with a nice flat surfac...
I am starting to get the hang of SketchUp but something tells me that the pro version may be even better. Why spend that money on a computer program when I can get wordworking tools, right? Ok, so here is my first shot at designing a built in tablesaw and workbench. I made a stacked cabinet design because I know I can actually accomplish making a cabinet. I also would like to replace the drawers I currently have in my bench. I can’t even imagine how heavy 12 2×4x51’s a...
Yep put together and made a number of pens this weekend starting on Friday after work. But before I get into that I mentioned last week that I had some glue ups drying in the shop for some shop items. I know nothing spectacular, just some 2×4s with holes drilled with a forstner bit. But oh so handy; the small one is attached via pocket holes to my mobile workstation by the drill press. My hope is not to lose the toothbrush and pencils as often. The larger one is a bit more advance...
