Parallel jaw leg vise

07-04-2012 10:28 PM by Boatman53 | 17 comments »

For about a year now I’ve been trying to refine the detail of my parallel jaw leg vise and I think I’ve got all the kinks worked out. My son put together this video of the bench I built this past winter that uses the chain leg vise. I’m in the process of getting quotes for the parts so I can offer these for sale. I’ve been making all the parts myself up to this point and I’m not a cnc. Take a look at the video and I welcome comment and discussions. It can be ret...

A New Work Bench, Mikey Style

07-04-2012 02:59 AM by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

Several years ago, I built a simple work table as a table saw outfeed table. It quickly became my do it all table. It is made out of 2×4’s and two pieces of 1/2 inch cd plywood which I had stored out in my shed. Fast forward to the present time. Lately I have gotten a renewed interest in woodworking. I have been doing some type of carpentry since the 70’s when I was helping my dad build pole barns. After my dad passed away, I was given his Craftsman table saw (circa 197...

Shop Built Clamps

07-02-2012 04:52 PM by Dave Rutan | 15 comments »

Lately I’ve been looking around trying to find inexpensive ways to make clamps to use in the shop. I think of my purchased commercially available clamps I own two 3 foot bar clamps and three Quick Grip clamps, plus two old c-clamps. Bar Type Clamps: The first information I found about making your own clamps was Alex Harris’ video. <iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/OQFVzq41zFA” frameborder=”0” height=”315” width=”560R...

Retracting clamp rack

06-29-2012 07:21 PM by Dan Lyke | 4 comments »

The new shop is coming together, but as we try to figure out where everything goes we’re realizing that some things that looked like good ideas in theory aren’t really working in practice. One of those things is my roll-around clamp rack. Charlene mentioned that what we really needed was something that retracted into the ceiling. I thought about it a bit, and eventually realized that we had the electric winch left over from the mechanism I built to lift the dirt to the roof....

Outdoor Furniture #11: Patio Planter Boxes - Continued

06-17-2012 05:23 PM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I’ve made a lot of progress on this project, but I’ve been so busy since the kids got out of school for the summer, that I haven’t had much computer time lately to update my blog. Here I have the three piece legs glued up and I’m testing the fit of the tenons. In this photo, I’ve finished the sanding all the parts, have the tenons glued into the legs, and have the panels installed. Now they are starting to look like planters. One of the changes I ma...

In the home stretch

Quick picture update for anyone following this father’s day gift builds. I put the bottom of the bench together this morning before Tom and I went to the pool for the afternoon. Tomorrow I need to put the braces on the legs as well as put the back on it. I should have time because my wife is going to a concert with her friend so it will be just Tom and I tomorrow night. I have it sanded already to 150 grit and only need to hand sand it 220 to remove the pigtails before I spray it with spar va...
