A Simple Sled

1542 days ago by Maclegno | 8 comments »

I made this sometime ago from a photo in a magazine (possibly FWW) If I remember correctly the style was New England. It still doesn’t have steel runners. I made it years ago with a wee girl in mind, daughter of a friend, she’s now over 20. Must speed up my work-rate.The woods are Ash and Beech..

The Best of Fine Woodworking

2435 days ago by Bob Babcock | 11 comments »

Wow….that’s about all I can think when I look at what is contained on this one DVD. I just received “THe Best of Fine Woodworking” , one of the prizes for the Summer Challenge (Thank you all again BTW). What an amazing treasure trove of knowledge that is sitting on a tray in my laptop. If you don’t subscribe to FWW online, and even if you do, this is a great library. It’s a very straightforward interface. You can search by keywords, or a simple set of...

Projects #9: John White FWW Workbench - Miscellaneous Tasks

2444 days ago by Jeff | 12 comments »

I have just about finished the bench. As it is right now, everything is functioning and I have moved it over to the actual work area. Tasks completed include:1) Mounted clips on the stretcher for the face clamps;2) Drilled holes in the bars of the face clamps so they can be adjusted with speed pins;3) Milled and mounted the drop-in clamping blocks for the tail vice clamps (used in the well);4) Cut and mounted the planing wedge to the front rail. Here are the pics.I don’t have a pic of...

Projects #8: John White FWW Workbench - Finished Top

2449 days ago by Jeff | 8 comments »

I have an update on the bench. The top is completed and I’m nearing the home stretch. I’m already starting to come up with ideas for special uses/jigs for the inserts in the well… I measured and drilled the holes for the end supports of the well and then threaded my pipe stock and checked for level. I also cut the blocks that are moved when you need to adjust the lateral clamps and positioned them above each leg and the center support. I laid in the MDF panels to make sur...

Projects #7: John White FWW Workbench - Clamping/Accessory Well

2454 days ago by Jeff | 7 comments »

Last week I finished drilling many holes for the sides of the well. These included the holes for the clamping bars as well as the pilot holes and countersinks for the confirmat screws. This took a bit of time because of all the measuring and trial and error positioning to ensure I didn’t make any major mistakes since the FWW plans were subject to interpretation and my sketchup plans (last entry) were a little inaccurate regarding the size of the clamping bars. It paid off though. For ...

Projects #5: John White FWW Workbench - Base and Half of Top Assembled

2465 days ago by Jeff | 13 comments »

Hullo, folks. I’ve been sneaking in a little more time on the bench and have an update. In the last entry I mentioned a snaffu with my chamfers. I got those all done in short order on the router table. I even took a chance on the leg I had already assembled. The fit with the lag bolt was of course a little looser when I reassembled the leg but nothing to get uptight about. This was pleasing.I put the legs together and then drilled my holes for the lag bolts in the ends of the stretcher....

Projects #4: John White FWW Workbench - Planning and Milling

2473 days ago by Jeff | 21 comments »

This is my interpretation of this cleverly designed bench by Fine Woodworking’s shop manager, John White. There have been a few mentions of this bench on the site and I have been eagerly anticipating having the time to build my version of the bench. I’ve had the lumber for about a month but had to sacrifice time in the shop to get our condo ready for sale this summer. Those preparations are all behind KT and I now and I can finally work in the shop when I want to. We’ve h...
