Mongo: my first real workbench #1: Planning and Laminating

03-22-2017 07:35 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 0 comments »

All my work surfaces are specific to a tool… outfeed table on a table saw, infeed and outfeed tables on a router table, long benches on either side of a radial arm saw and power miter saw station, etc. I’ve been without a general work surface ever since I started working wood in my own shop. A such, my projects tend to move from whatever tool I’m not using to whatever tool I just used and none are really suitable for any handwork which is where my focus has started to tur...

My Roubo Build #13: Picking it Up Again, For Real!

02-26-2017 09:25 AM by naomi weiss | 3 comments »

Just a quick post to say that I am really building my Roubo! And I mean it this time! The baby is in daycare and the husband has gone to get some lumber for me. I had made a mistake in my ordering, and in the end, my bench will have some kind of an apron ( I know, not really a French bench), and won’t be pretty, but hey, it’ll get the job done, and I will get back to woodworking!! I assembled this workbench from Costco when I was 8 months pregnant. I was pretty disappointed tha...

Woodshop Tips and Tricks #1: Temporary Metal Vise for Woodshop

06-27-2016 02:18 AM by CharlieK | 5 comments »

View on YouTube I have a very nice woodworking workbench. My bench is adjustable height, has a built in mobile base, bench dogs, a twin screw vise on one end and a quick acting face vise on the other end. It is a fantastic bench for woodworking, which is most of what I do in my shop. I do like metal working, but I focus on woodworking. Occasionally, I need to use a metal vise and I discovered a great, and very easy, solution. I have two metal vises. I keep the better one in the gara...

Workbench upgrades

05-21-2016 12:25 AM by woodworkerguyca | 0 comments »

So here’s the dilemma for the router, how to hold it in… I found the standard base way more friendly than the plunge base, but the plunge base is spring loaded, so I’m not sticking that in upside down. This means the base has gotta come out real easy. Sloppy drilled holes with aluminum pins act as hinges for the plywood support arms. The theory checks out and holds it solid while clamped like this, but it needs a little something more to keep it up. Here is the wa...

Shop Bench

05-09-2016 02:37 AM by WoodywoodpeckerMike | 10 comments »

This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…

Just a basic sitting bench

04-05-2016 01:30 PM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

here is a link to my bench video: https://youtu.be/29BgWjv5n6A In this Video, I’m building a bench with my daughter’s assistance for our BBQ area. My influence was Izzy Swan’s video “Pay it forward bench.” Basic construction grade lumber was used with glue and pocket screws. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paf4H...Lizzy’s Video

YAWB - Yet Another Workbench (Or My Take on the Ultimate Tool Stand) #4: Carcass Finish & First (Unofficial) Use

04-01-2016 11:03 PM by mrhammerstein | 0 comments »

After making the torsion box and carcass I wanted to protect the bench a little. I rubbed in some tung oil finish (two coats I think) and added a coat of furniture wax. For garage use, I felt that would be fine. No need to coat where it won’t be exposed. I haven’t built the riser blocks (whatever they’re called). It brought a little shine to the workbench. My sanding got the best of me and a sanded through the top birch veneer at a lot of the corners, but I’m no...
