Current Project #7: Still Upside Down

09-09-2014 12:10 AM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Not a thrilling photo today, but I had to get my feet back under me after the weekend. On Friday afternoon our well developed a problem. I had to call a plumber for this one. As plumber calls go, this one wasn’t that bad, though prepping for his arrival caused me to clean out a storage area of my shop and put that stuff in my shop proper. So today I worked on the legs. The only thing I need to do to the base at this point is saw some edging to hide the plywood edges and glue ...

Current Project #6: Legs!

09-05-2014 07:01 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Today I started working on the legs for the table. The picture above will give you an idea of what they will look like. The photos below are two views of the glue up. They are not glued to the table, but will eventually be bolted to the cleats. In these photos I’m using the cleats and the 2×4s sticking out the ends as spacers. I put a bit of duct tape on them to allow a little play. We’re getting there.

Seating Bench Under Construction #4: The undercarriage done

01-31-2014 08:51 PM by Karson | 11 comments »

I took the panels and the legs and I cut biscuit slots. I thought I took pictures but don’t find any so I glued the panels and legs together. Both ends done. I decided to use dowels to hold the ends to the stretcher. The plan was to run screws through the panels and then plug the hole. I opted not to do it that way. I used dowel centers to mark the stretcher. I then glued the undercarriage together. Then i had to set the bench seat on to see what it looked like.

Workbench #2: vise handle, bench dogs, and legs

02-05-2013 06:00 PM by yuridichesky | 8 comments »

Not much progress since last time, but still some. First of all, I made my wagon vise a handle. It’s been cut from raw oak stock that I took from my country house almost two years ago. I started with planing it to be a square, then to be octagonal, then I doubled number of edges yet more couple of times, and finished with some very light sanding. To make end knobs I used my poor man’s lathe: Time after time I use it to turn knobs, handles and such: And here is my ...

Nakashima Inspired Coffee Table #4: A Leg to Stand On

08-24-2012 11:28 PM by PittsburghTim | 0 comments »

After toying for some time with the idea of using one long leg along the straight side of the top and a turned leg on the other side, some testing with a mock-up convinced me that it was just not goinf to be stable. I turned towards another idea that would still use one long leg down the center of the table with one cross-leg, if you will, off center in both directions. I think that the leg design will be stable, yet is not too heavy looking. It still needs some final fitting before I sa...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #1: She's got legs.....

03-26-2012 04:01 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 7 comments »

I’ll skip the boring parts, like the glue up of the legs and material choice. I will say that I had intended to build my own designed bench sometime last year. I was sold on a certain author’s idea of an awesome Roubo style bench. I got Paul Sellers’ Working Wood, book and dvd set at Christmas this year, and it completely changed my way of thinking. But you didn’t come here for ramblings, you want to see pictures…... There they are, pretty aren&#...

My First WorkBench Build #8: Legs art fitted in! Now to do the stretchers!

02-27-2012 03:54 PM by BerBer5985 | 5 comments »

Fitted the legs into the mortise and tenon and I was happy with 3 of the 4. The one mortise I got a little carried away with and there’s a little gap in the through mortise, but the sucker is tight and not moving, so I’m going to fill it with a sliver of Douglas Dir to fill it, but other than that, I was fairly pleased with the results for my first mortises of that scale. It’s so sturdy the way it is, it almost doesn’t need stretchers.

Building My Roubo Bench #10: Connecting the Stretchers to Legs...to THE TOP!

02-25-2012 03:18 PM by Andy Panko | 1 comment »

These posts haven’t been exactly chronological. For example, in the last entry, (about finishing the underside of the top) some of the stuff I did prior to finishing the legs and stretchers, and some of it I did after. But for the sake of giving better flow to this blog, I thought I’d lump stuff together in logical parts. I digress. My drawbore pin arrived from Lee Valley recently, so I was able to finally connect all these mortis and tenon joints. As I had previously menti...

Building My Roubo Bench #8: Attaching the Stretchers to the Legs

02-19-2012 10:16 PM by Andy Panko | 1 comment »

I had thought that I previously finished the legs (except for mortising for the stretchers). However, after visualizing how the top would mate to the legs, I realized I needed to adjust the tenons on the two legs on the left of the bench. I’m going to be putting the left legs flush with the left edge of the top. I don’t want to be able to see the tenons from the side of the top when the project is complete. Using the table saw, I notched the tenons on the top of the legs so th...
