Workbench 101

02-05-2008 09:22 PM by PanamaJack | 25 comments »

Over the past several years I have been needing and wanting to buy or maybe just make a workbench. I have gone to five woodworking shows in three states over the past two years. At these shows and in several magazines or catalogs I have noticed many of these really nice woodworking benches that are way far out of my reach as far as the $$$ involved. Finally after a elongated sick spell lasting nearly two months I finally get few boards together, screws, a very few nails and other items tha...

Work(shop) in Progress #8: New Table Saw: Low Profile Riving Knife for Ridgid R4511

04-13-2009 03:51 AM by PurpLev | 53 comments »

So among the few shotcuts that were made by providing the R4511 at the market price was the fact that it only came with a splitter+integrated blade guard but no additional low profile riving knives (for non through cuts). for the price this saw comes at – one can’t complain, and the fact is- it does have a riving knife mount system which is a good base to start with. solution: homemade riving knife made out of 1/8” plate of 6063 aluminum: EDIT: If I’d do this again,...

Work(shop) in Progress #5: Drill Press Table

03-17-2009 04:08 PM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

I cannot take full credit for this, as this is an upgrade I’ve made to my old drill press table with an idea I’ve seen on Woodscrap’s workshop page. My original table was just 3/4” birch plywood, which was too thin, and when I installed the t-tracks in it, the slot I routed left the plywood useless as there wasnt enough material left to keep it sturdy, and not enough material for the screws to hold into. The new table is 3/4” birch ply laminated with hardboard...

Designing the Thien Baffle in Sketchup

07-27-2014 02:37 AM by Sk1pp3r | 1 comment »

I am just posting my journey for my upgrades to the Harbor Freight Dust collector I got. I have been using it stock except for the wynn filter cartridge and have been happy with it so far, however I have been getting some leaks and will smell the wood dust coming from the collector after cutting items. So I figured if I am going to seal the leaks, I better just build a whole new cart and add a Thien Separator. The first post here is detailing the Thien Separator. I went over to his we...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #6: It's up, the rack is hanging and Just About Done!!!

11-17-2014 03:15 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!

New Shop - from the ground , up. #8: Building shop furniture - Help with hardboard??

12-09-2014 11:44 AM by curliejones | 5 comments »

Some time ago. I built the “Not Ready for Prime Time” workbench and described its intended purposes in my projects. It looks like this. http://lumberjocks.com/assets/pictures/projects/340962-438x.jpg?1351600503The top is actually an old lumber core door that is banded and topped with 1/4” hardboard. I am just moving into the new shop and trying to organize as I go, a daunting task indeed! I know things will evolve but I’m trying to start in a good place and then l...

Opinions please #1: Solid core door topping the bench

10-05-2012 11:46 AM by curliejones | 7 comments »

Greetings, fellow LJs. I have a puzzle that needs a solution. I built a workbench that I particularly want to roll into place for TS outfeed. I hope to soon delineate the steps taken and justify decisions to help the next guy not do so much planning. The “opportunity” before me goes like this: I have a very nice solid core door for the workbench top and a piece of hardboard for the sacrificial top. After reading the “two-sided tape” tip several times, I bought a roll. ...

Castle Bookcase #4: Carcase Assembly Part II

08-16-2013 10:32 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today I installed a block (2 2×4 cut-offs glued and screwed together) to support the bottom shelf, directly under the support brace for the main shelf. Here it is before installation: It was a perfect fit and will carry any weight from the top shelf down through the bottom shelf nicely, I think. To install it, I drew lines where the vertical support will go, then countersunk screws in that space to hold the block. A layer of glue and the vertical support was installed with p...
