View Tim Anderson's profile Which Tim Builds a Saw Bench (Part 3)

And so we move on to the conclusion of this new useful work surface. When we last left the saw bench, it was dry fitted and ready for gluing. I then added some glue (quite a bit for some of my sloppier joints, and glued the whole thing together. I actually found that the bench was very stable once glued despite my somewhat sloppy joints, so I didn’t need to do any reinforcing beneath. After that, I found that it was a far cry from flat, so I had to spend quite a lot of time getting the ...

So, I have decided to build a saw bench in the style of Stumpy Nubs design (more or less). This is in part a learning exercise, and in part because sawing things on the workbench isn’t the most comfortable way to do it. There have been some challenges along the way, but I’ve nearly got the mortises and tenons for the legs all cut and fitted, which leaves only the draw-boring and the dovetails for the top, give or take a couple holes for holdfasts. I started by cutting out the t...

Being Freed Up. Seeing wood and woodworking in a new light.

04-14-2008 03:18 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 18 comments »

Ok, I promised myself and my wife that I would quit typing so much and work in the shop more. So, I’ve been fairly quiet, only admiring all of the growth of LJ, and the projects and blogs a few times a day quietly. This growing bunch of folks has been truly inspirational for me. But, when I type too much, I don’t make things, bills come in the mailbox, upset spouse, thus the silence. After all, what I have to say isn’t all that important anyway. Something else my wife t...

Knots in cedar strip canoes #1: I like big knots and I cannot lie.
