Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 3 - End

06-07-2017 11:54 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 2 comments »

Hello everyone !This is the third and last part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench (a Moxon vise benchtop bench). Today I share with you the making of the handles and the finishing. To make the handles I considered to embed the nuts in a floral shape, using the leftover wood of the legs, (guayubir√° “Patagonula americana”).It is evident that at this stage of the work, we can make a perfect flower, symmetrical, neat, but above all cold.However, to bring something more natura...

Make a Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 2

Beveling of dog holes using a gouge, instead a power router or other method, it’s really simple and quick.As all in wood, you must understand the grain direction, and think that the gouge will be in four basic position...

Miniature Bench #1: Steve Latta's Mini Bench Plan

01-30-2016 02:38 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

With my sore back, I needed a solution when working at my workbench. Clamping a mini-bench seems like a good step to take. Of the plans I have seen I like Steve Latta’s miniature bench that was presented in Fine Woodworking Magazine. I bought the plan and printed the article. The reason I like it is because along the working edge of the bench, the legs are flush with the benchtop. This allows the user to clamp boards, etc to the side of the mini-bench. I had most of the lumber al...
