SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #4: Cost & Weight Estimate

01-30-2013 03:11 AM by grfrazee | 3 comments »

I’m sure there are those of you interested in how much this thing weighs and (more importantly) how much it cost to build. A quick volume estimate puts the total amount of wood at ~5 cubic feet. Considering an average specific gravity of about 0.60 (range for SYP is 0.54 – 0.65, and the hickory is more than that), the weight is: (5 cu. ft.)(62.4 lbs/cu. ft.)(0.60) = 187 lbs So, the wood alone is about 190 lbs. Factor in the weight of the vise hardware and the many metal...

Mobile Torsion Box Workbench #6: Materials, Costs, and Sources

01-28-2013 12:00 AM by Ron Stewart | 2 comments »

The following table summarizes the project costs in different categories in U.S. Dollars (full-resolution image). I didn’t include sales taxes, shipping costs, or cost of the screws and other supplies. The cost of the basic bench is not too bad. Mobility (lateral, not just upward) has its costs. The Veritas products are definitely splurges. (But I had to have something to put on my Christmas list…)

Amazing Tools #9: Lie-Nielsen planes

03-05-2010 09:56 PM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

I think I need help. It’s happening. I cannot stop researching planes and workbenches lately. I don’t have room for a bench, nor money for any planes, but they’re just so enticing! Lie-Nielsen has been the most attractive by far, but I find it staggering the number of planes available – 44 standards listed, with an additional 30 variants, not including left/right hand options for the few that have them (same price in each case). The bench plane model numbers (e.g. N...

This is the question that I run into all the time when I bid jobs. Today I picked up materials for a small job and I mulled over this question as I stood staring at the cargo in my truck. Three boards of cherry and one sheet of 1/4” mdf core cherry… $217. Well, at least I got the job. Peace, Love, & Woodworking

So you want to go pro #13: "The Price is Right" ?

01-17-2008 08:45 PM by odie | 3 comments »

Well, one more bowl turned and one more blog entry to write. And believe me, this is a good time to write this. It’s 4 degrees outside and 34 degrees in the shop. This topic is coming to a close. There are only a couple left to do I can think of, unless you have questions. Hell, there must be a couple of questions in Turlock. This is a tough topic to tackle. Say that 5 times really quick. Your pricing structure is this entries topic. The first component of any price structure is the cost. ...
