Workbench Build #26: Standing on it's own 4 legs...

07-08-2013 05:59 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Time for some catch up and an update. Most of you who follow the workbench thread on the forum have already seen most of this but I feel compelled to keep this blog alive and I really need to resist the urge to spam the forum with progress updates and keep them here lol (sorry about that guys!). So we left off with the legs being glued up so naturally the next step was to square them up and make them more “leg” like. I had to get creative with the clamping to make this happen...

Dining Room Table...BY Suppertime?

07-07-2013 01:21 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Yup. had a pair of legs already tapered on two sides. Got the other two legs done by noonish. Tapered with handplanes only, mind you. Set up a “work space” such as i have. A washer & dryer served as a staging area And laid out a few toys, er tools. That little piece of paper? THAT is all the “plans” I had, just the measurements for the aprons. Made tenons on one of the short aprons ( 24-1/2” long 1×4) so I would have a pattern...

Old gems #2: mortice chisels (pig sticker)

06-28-2013 12:52 PM by Gibernak | 6 comments »

A month ago I bought these chisels for about 10 dollars. I didn’t really know what it was before I began investigating. I began by checking the names of chisels 3 of them are stamped “Ward” 5 of them are mortise chisels, the old pig sticker kind, but the handles were in bad condition. They were worm-eaten and split so I decided to replace them and they were quite rusty. So I put them in some water with citric acid And made new handels This is how t...

Workbench Build #25: Forward Progress finally... Top Glue Up done and Legs started..

06-08-2013 06:27 PM by Airframer | 7 comments »

So, it has been a few months since I have done any work on the bench. I think I needed a mental reset and to get through the rest of my wife’s pregnancy distracted by small projects. Now that that is over with and my shop is in a manageable condition again finally I can get back to work on this elephant of a project. Having a newborn in the house has limited my available time in the shop but that seems to have focused my energy when I DO get in there to get something done while ...

Honing a fresh edge quickly

06-03-2013 11:43 PM by lwllms | 3 comments »

Cutting edges are supposed to be created by the meeting of two surfaces. Most the stuff on honing I see only addresses refreshing one of those surfaces but both surfaces suffer dulling wear in use. Repeatable, dependable creating of a sharp edge requires addressing both surfaces. Flat stones and a matching flat face on the tool to be honed facilitate quick honing. This video was created in response to Chris Schwarz’s blog post, Shut up and sharpen. He wanted links to videos posted. ...

Grinder Tool Stand #1: Base

05-22-2013 04:46 AM by Chad | 0 comments »

So how I decided to build this came from another project I wanted to start which was a large bible stand for a friend. I decided I wanted to add detail to the joints by dovetailing them but found my chisels were horribly wounded from a year of not knowing how to care for and sharpen them. So from the this I decided to learn to sharpen them and from there wanted to do so in a controlled way. After looking on lee valley I say a chisel grinder stand and wolverine turning guide that i though...
