'The Behemoth' Multi-function Workbench #1: Researching, designing and first round of glue-ups

2195 days ago by sandflea | 2 comments »

Over the past several weeks I’ve been looking for ways to maximize the space in my small shop and get more utility out of the items that dwell there. For the last few years my workbench has been a crude, stationary one that is built into the wall. One of the first things I built, it’s too tall, too narrow and only three sides can be used. I decided to tear out this bench and build a replacement. So the first phase was trying to make a list of all the things I needed this ben...

Workbench #3: Base

36 days ago by john2005 | 8 comments »

Been awhile since I updated this. Hard to find time with a 2yr old and another on the way. Always trying to balance the time. Then of course the holidays came where all I did was make Christmas gifts. I had hoped to have this all wrapped up by the first of the year and here it is march and I’m not done. Close though. So the guy I got the birch from had already made 2 legs. They were 4” square and about 40” long. I was wanting to go with 5” legs but sinc...

A workbench from salvaged wood?

214 days ago by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well at least the wood came from such things as a dumpster. Cut a few things Had to cut a place for some legs to go. and a few cut-outs about 4” up from the leg’s bottom edge. A stretcher was needed between the two legs. And after all the legs, and stretchers are assembled, time to make a toolwell area too. A 5/4×3-1/2” piece off an old door, for a front apron, regular 2×4s for the ends and a 2×4 for the back apron. Had some lap joints to mill o...

Land of Nod #2: Joinery

93 days ago by byerbyer | 4 comments »

Over the course of couple of weeks I slowly milled the pieces down to final dimensions and it was time to start with the joinery! The “headboard” ends, as I call them, will be mortise and tenoned with the spindles captured between an upper an lower rail. Because I’m a glutton for punishment I decided I’d do a double tenon to give the frame plenty of strength. Considering I hadn’t cut/chopped a mortise in over a decade it was going to be sink or swin… I cut ...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

95 days ago by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

A secret dovetail?

14 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

been trying my hand at a few of those “Full Blind Dovetails” aka miter, or secret dovetails. From the outside, they look like a regular mitered joint. But, open the joint up, and a few dovetails appear. Anyway, did a little research, watch a bit of Roy Underhill, and made a sketch or two. Down in the Dungeon Shop, I had a few cut-offs of walnut 1×4s. Not very long ones, but something to putter around on. A bit of plane work to get them all about the same w...

Vermont Lap Desk, almost done:

362 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With the sides all nice and coplanar, time to mill a rabbet for a bottom. Set up a router with a 3/8” rabbetting bit, and ran it around the edges. Squared the corners with a chisel. Now, I get told there is to be a divider in this desk. Hunt around for a piece of scrap wood to make the divider. I also needed a dado for it to be installed. So, I laid one out, about three inches from the front. handsawn, and then chiseled to remove the waste And repeat for the other s...
