Found this at a thrift shop and restored it. (Just an old Stanley Two-tone Jack but works for now) My own knife, plane iron, and chisel sharpening system I designed. 80 to 7000 grit.

Yet another workbench #5: Hardware 2 and Wrap Up

08-31-2015 09:49 PM by JonasB | 1 comment »

Parallel guide chain mechanism To make the chain mechanism, I used #35 chain and the sprockets are 10T with a 3/8 center. The chain is attached using two chain links. I had to do some metal working to create a few items: the brackets to hold the sprockets and a way of securing the chain at both ends. I had a 1.5” rectangular steel tube in my scrap collection so I used an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel to make both brackets that hold the sprockets with 3/8 bolts. Big box store ang...

Yet another workbench #4: Hardware 1

08-30-2015 05:41 PM by JonasB | 0 comments »

Screw assembly The face vise screw mechanism is all DIY. Here are the piece parts. The hand-wheel has been kicking around my basement for 15 years. I remember buying it on Ebay for a project I never completed. It was too nice to throw away, so it waited and waited until now to find a purpose. The acme screw and nut I picked up on Ebay more recently. I cut the screw to length and drilled the hole that holds the hand-wheel setscrew. I found a 5 inch brass plate 1/2 inch thick also on...

Yet another workbench #3: Wooden Parts 2

08-29-2015 05:36 PM by JonasB | 0 comments »

Top Assembly The top consist of two sub-assemblies: The lower half and the upper. The lower half is made up of two plywood sheets glued together, edged with maple and joined using doweled bridle joints. The doubled up plywood is attached to the frame using a basic butt joint strengthened with 3/8” dowels and glued down with epoxy. I used this method because my wood was not wide enough for the desired final dimensions if I rabbeted in the panel. This simple butt joint gave me some a...

Yet another workbench #2: Wooden Parts 1

08-28-2015 05:35 PM by JonasB | 3 comments »

Leg Assembly Two leg assemblies are part of the support system for the bench. I was going to use glued up 2×4s, but found some 12/4 poplar, so sawed that to shape instead. The legs are 2.75” thick and 4” wide, and the top rail is 2.75” square. The legs are angled at about 15 degrees. The 2×4 approach would have simplified cutting the angled slots, but then you have the hassle of cleaning up the glued up legs. The large hunks of wood making up the legs give them a nice soli...

Yet another workbench #1: My belt and suspenders design.

08-27-2015 10:35 PM by JonasB | 3 comments »

So I decided I needed to finally build a real woodworking bench for my new workspace. I got all the books by Chris Schwarz, checked all the back issues of woodworking mags and browsed the internet in preparation. Then the first thing I did was break one of Chris Schwarz rules. I decided to design my own rather then duplicate a historical bench. I think I had valid reasons. My workspace is small. I could not fit a long bench. A short bench means planning forces have a bigger impact, so I d...

The Mayan end to the woodworking year.....

12-21-2012 08:53 PM by jbschutz | 8 comments »

The Mayan calendar may have been a tad off over all, but it would have been right on if it had predicted the end of my woodworking year. Yesterday, after clearing my driveway of 10 inches of fresh snow and delivering the snowblower to my neighbor, I slipped coming back across the street and broke my right ankle. So, daily forays to the shop/garage will be on hold for a bit. Getting around on crutches is about all I can handle right now. Too bad I don’t have some little projects to sand ...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #5: Dry Fit!

09-17-2009 01:29 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to plane the stock for the shelves yesterday. I glued up a large enough blank for two shelves, then used the fence to cut them parallel. I then used the cross-cut sled to square the other sides. I got to use my Delta new mortiser to make all of the mortises (3 on each side x 4 sides = 12 total). Luckily, they were all 3/8” and had the same offset from the front/back. This meant that with one setup, I could knock them all out. If I had done them with a chisel, ...
