Roubo-ish work bench #3: Stretchers

05-14-2017 04:18 PM by galooticus | 2 comments »

Ah, stretchers. These were made from douglas 4×4s—the B-stock pieces that didn’t make the cut when laminating the top. Compared to the leg-top tenons, this stage was a breeze. As I mentioned in the last blog post, I ditched my old bench and am working entirely on the new bench from this point on. First things first, I put in a single dog hole so I could make use of a hold fast. This is the first time using anything other than irwin quick clamps for workholding. So muc...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #6: Another boring adventure.

07-26-2016 08:57 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

Today I finished up mortising the crossmember in and bored them for all thread. (Thanks for the tip tblank). I also routered a groove in the elevation platform for the elevation wedge to slide on. Then I did a dry fit of everything. I have a few other things to do on this project but I should be able to start glueing tomorrow! Elevation platform and wedge. Here I am marking the main runners for boring be taping this all thread thru my crossmember. Time to test fit! Front Rear

Bedrails #2: Oops.

08-24-2010 08:22 PM by AnnaEA | 1 comment »

In which everything is going along swimmingly, until it turns out I failed to buy the right size lag bolts. This slat is being attached with lag bolts instead of wood screws so that if we need to move the bed, I can take it off the ladder. The upper part of it will have a notch cut into to it to slide the rail into, and the rail itself will have some little wing-type what-nots on the butt end of it so it can’t slide back out sideways. So I’ve got it all bored, slide the ...

The rails are 45” long with 2 1/2” tenon sticking on each side (to a total length of 50” – do the math). They are made of 2 2×4 that were jointed/plane...

Building a new workbench #8: Slow week

02-24-2009 04:09 AM by Loogie | 9 comments »

This week life intervened and I didn’t get much work done on the bench. Just before I left on my trip I started to drill the holes in the side rails. I started by using a 3/4” auger bit in my drill press. Unfortunately I didn’t plan this step quite as thoroughly as I have done for the rest of this project. Mistake #1 not trying this technique on a pice of scrap first and instead drilling into the bottom rail of the workbench. Mistake #2: Not clamping the rail down to the ta...

A New Persective on my Business; A Hot Air Balloon Tour of the Kansas Flint Hills Tallgrass Prairie

07-31-2008 04:51 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 29 comments »

(I haven’t done this style of blogging for awhile. With so many new LJ’ers now on this website, I’ve figured most of us don’t want to see these long-winded-folksy style, non-woodworking, rambling, style blogs anymore. But, this is a story about “Hot Air”, so I’ll let a bunch out along with the photos.) This blog could easily be subtitled: ”Facing Your Fears with Hot Air.”Read on further to find out why. July 29th, 2008: I wa...
