Working the wood #1: A good start

477 days ago by woodsyman | 1 comment »

Being the self-educated woodworker that I am, I would like to discuss the tool I feel has become the most important tool in my collection and that is my workbench. It is a great place to start when developing a shop of your own. I know there are many who will disagree. In fact, I once was one of these folks when I used to think the DeWalt 12” sliding double bevel mitre saw was the most important tool in the collection. At the time, the mitre saw was about the only tool I couldn̵...

Workbench restore (Scandinavian style) #6: One legged dead man walking…

621 days ago by mafe | 9 comments »

Scandinavian workbench restoreOne legged dead man walking… Ok some awful undertones in that name…Actually it is just a simple dead man for the new old workbench. Just a long piece of wood, not sure but think teak. Marking the center line. Drilling holes for every two inch or five cm. And a little dowel that fits the holes with a cross dowel that makes it easy to pull out. Use the end vice to hold it. Get the idea? Now it is just to use it.I udsed it for pla...

Workbench restore (Scandinavian style) #5: Making bench dogs.

625 days ago by mafe | 13 comments »

Scandinavian workbench restoreMaking bench dogs. Time for bench dogs, the show must go on… First was to cut three pieces of wood into the right size.The bench dog holes total size and the length I choose to be app double the thickness of the bench top. On the left you see the only dog that came with the bench… I guess this dog cant bark a lot…So time to make some marking, now the shape comes and I simply follow the measures of the dog holes in the bench top. This time I use ...

Workbench #12: Bench Dogs

1017 days ago by CartersWhittling | 4 comments »

Hello. This weekend had I finished up my tailvise and made the bench dogs for my bench. I am currently making up a video to show you the tailvise, so when that is done in the next day or two I will post the finished vise. I made one dog for each hole in my bench. Aswell as a special dog that fits in the first hole in the tailvise for when I need to clamp work that would be to short otherwise. I have a thin strip glued with the grain in the opposite direction to give the extension...

Delta Unisaw

1653 days ago by GrandsonOfRue | 3 comments »

This is my grandfather’s 1967 Delta Unisaw. It sat for years after his death from the time I was about 10 till I was in my first house at 25. Took minimal clean up and was ready to go. It had the original fence so I purchased a Delta upgrade. Not as nice as the Beisemeyer but not as expensive either. It was an easy bolt on and was exact right out of the box. You can also see my Jessem Miter which is a fantastic Miter. I run Freud blades and between these three upgrades the cuts on th...

YAWB #1: Dog Hole Placement

1694 days ago by minntc | 6 comments »

Welcome to yet another workbench project. The first question I have that I haven’t seen a whole lot of discussion on is placement of bench dog holes. I see a lot of benches that put them 2-4 inches from the front of the bench, but wouldn’t a better placement be in the 4-6 inch range, if not more? Placing them 2” in would probably make it easier to work on smaller stock, but placing them 6” back or more should give you more flexibility for larger stock as well, witho...
