62 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

I finally got around to drilling the dog holes in my bench (only a year late) and now it was time to make some bench dogs. Now I like traditional woodworking, but wanted something quick and easy. I will be making some traditional bench dogs, but here is the simplest bench dog ever. Check out the VIDEO HERE Please Subscribe to my channel for more woodworking and general DIY videos.

Bench II

79 days ago by JosRitter | 0 comments »

I am building a set of two benches; one for me and, hopefully, a profit bench. The need for the bench is due to a lack of sitting locations to install shoes on my feet. We have a shoeless policy in our home. In one of my earlier project post, I made a simple bench out of treated pine scraps to get an idea of what I was doing before moving on to this build. This project is a skill step up from my previous bench. It has a small bit of shaping added by my 4-1/2” angle grinder usin...

Reclaimed Glory #14: An Ode to Power Carving & Sculpting Reclaimed Furniture

104 days ago by palaswood | 1 comment »

I have been dragging home interesting logs I come across in the woods from time to time over this past year, and I have amassed a sizeable little pile (ok not little at all!). Thing is, without a huge bandsaw or a chainsaw mill, processing the wood into lumber is a task hardly worth the enormous effort. I know, I’ve tried. I recently looked into power carving for the first time as a quick and creative way to make use of my …inventory, lets call it.With an investment of onl...

Outfitting the workshop #10: I actually finished it!

115 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

We’ve been seeing above 0 degrees the last few days so I thought I’d turn the heat on in the shop and finish my bench. I’d reinforced the apron mounted the faces and planed everything flush. A closer view: I think this is the first task in the shop that is done, no further intended fiddling I can just go and start using it! I am a bit concerned that there seems to be a bit if racking when I open the vice, not sure if its not installed correctly or if that i...

The FREE bench vise for the adventurous.

122 days ago by jordanp | 7 comments »

I hadn’t planed on making a new vise this weekend. It all started when a friend called and said his dad had a broken down craftsman radial arm saw. He had asked if I wanted it because he was going to haul it off to the dump, of course my response was heck yes! That’s a free tool stand at minimum. I tore it down and used the stand for my bench top drill press.I took the motor off to keep just in case I needed a replacement for something down the line. My 3 yr old was very fas...

shop projects and upgrades #5: children keep you young and five year olds cut the best dog holes

130 days ago by jacob34 | 2 comments »

So as with a lot of us I don’t get to live in my shop, I put family time in front of it and of coarse work (although id trade that one if I could). Anyway I had sometime in the shop yesterday and decided to grab my auger bit and drill some dog holes. My five year old, lil mini me that she is wanted to help. The auger bit cuts or grabs less after the screw tip comes through bottom, so I let her turn the brace at that point thinking she’d get tired. Nope she cut through the bottom o...

shop projects and upgrades #4: slow rise to a top

152 days ago by jacob34 | 1 comment »

I finally got back into the shop on my bench build. I have been sidelined for awhile with a bum elbow and well snuck down into the shop anyway. Shhhh do not tell my wife. I was going to make the front six inches or so five inches thick and decided to make it all the same at the last minute. So after a table saw mistake of which I am still not sure what I was daydreaming about when it happened, I ended up with my boards thickness planned to a little more than 2 3/4”. I have 1...
