Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 3 - End

06-07-2017 11:54 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 2 comments »

Hello everyone !This is the third and last part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench (a Moxon vise benchtop bench). Today I share with you the making of the handles and the finishing. To make the handles I considered to embed the nuts in a floral shape, using the leftover wood of the legs, (guayubirá “Patagonula americana”).It is evident that at this stage of the work, we can make a perfect flower, symmetrical, neat, but above all cold.However, to bring something more natura...

Make a Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 2

05-30-2017 12:03 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 6 comments »

Hello everyone! In this second part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench, I share with you the gluing of the parts, the beveling of dog holes using a gouge, the shaped of the fixing lugs, the placement of the threaded rods, and the built of the front jaw. Beveling of dog holes using a gouge, instead a power router or other method, it’s really simple and quick.As all in wood, you must understand the grain direction, and think that the gouge will be in four basic position...

Dave's Workshop #20: No more piles O' files

02-16-2017 01:14 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

Since I recently went to the trouble to put handles on my collection of chisels, I decided to also make them more accessible. They used to be kept inside the cabinet shown. The smaller ones were in a lazy Susan that I inherited from my dad, while the longer ones just sat in a pile on a shelf. I made these racks out of scrap wood and mounted them on the outside of the door of the cabinet. While I was at it, I took my rack of ‘good’ chisels* and mounted it on the outside on th...

How I fixed Herbie's Hammer...or how I love old tools.

To see the pictures of the hammer fix, please click here. As promised in Day 19 of the Workbench saga, here is the story of my great-grandfather’s hammer. Genealogy is another of my pursuits and it is a joy to be able to combine woodworking with genealogy. I love it! My great-grandfather Herbert (“Herbie”) Vaught was born in September of 1875 to his parents George W. Vaught and Emily Ann Tucker in Shelbyville, Indiana. Here is Herbie in 1938 at the age of 62. Th...

Last weekend I was back up in RI to drop off a whelping box I build one my Aunt’s dog that’s expecting puppies soon. Normally I wouldn’t be so quick to make the trip North on the traffic infested route 95 to new England but I worked the trip around Matt Cianci (writer of the saw blog) latest class offering: Saw Rehab and Restoration at the Shady Lea workshops. Due to the broad topic Matt Started off the class by asking us, (it just so happened all of were from NJ) what we were most interes...

What I wish I'd known before spending money on woodworking hand tools #2: Still more new or used... You decide.

03-29-2011 08:35 PM by Dave Pearce | 3 comments »

This is the followup on my first posting concerning new vs. used woodworking tools. Bits, Braces and Eggbeaters Fortunately, for me, it wasn’t hard to find braces, either at flea markets, or antique shops. There’s a wide variety out there as well, so it’s not uncommon to find many variations of the same item. I’ve got several Stanley, Millers Falls, and Pexto models, and all of them have their good points. Since there were so many manufacturers, if you see one...
