3 Day Bench Build Blog #3: DAY 3: Final Assembly & Vise Install

06-02-2011 03:28 AM by jcwalleye | 11 comments »

With the top done, set the leg assembly in position next to the face vise. And the end vise slides to make sure everything still fits. Square everything up and mark the spot where the hex bolts attach the top to the top rail. I used the top rails as a jig to get the holes straight and drilled from the bottom toward the top to just where the brad point stuck through the top surface. This gave me a pilot for later drilling the counter bore in the top for the ½” bolts that attaches the...

3 Day Bench Build Blog #2: The Top Takes Shape

06-01-2011 02:41 AM by jcwalleye | 0 comments »

Gluing up the top took a fair amount of time. Originally I had planned to glue up sub sections and then glue the subsections together. When gluing the first two subsections together, I found it difficult to get enough clamping pressure to get a real tight glue line. In fact the only glue line in the whole project that isn’t perfectly tight is where I glued the two subsections together. Knowing that I wasn’t going to be able to do anything with subsections of 4, 6, & 8 laminates th...

3 Day Bench Build Blog #1: Day 1: Building the Base

05-31-2011 03:11 AM by jcwalleye | 1 comment »

Spent a good chunk of the day dimensioning the materials, 1st one edge on the jointer, then to the table saw, back to the jointer for two adjacent edges, and then through the planer. Got some good help from Larry here. The legs are nice & straight. And then glued up. Found some curly maple that I experimented with but that’s another story. Here’s all the material machined down to rough size. Started making the mortises with a drill a chisel. But the square mo...

Entertainment Center #4: Base, Shelves, and Top

05-24-2011 05:20 AM by Marc | 1 comment »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. As promised, I completed the base of the entertainment center this time, along with a couple of other little details. The base is just made up of four corner blocks and four rails screwed together with some pocket screws. The corner blocks were actually pretty easy to make although…

Blanket Chest #1: Design Choice and Lumber Purchase (pictures)

05-21-2011 04:48 AM by HokieMojo | 5 comments »

Well, this will be my 6th active blog. I’m spreading myself a bit thin. My wife and I learned that we are are having another baby in the near future. I decided I want to build something for our latest addition and after a lot of thought, concluded that a toy chest/blanket chest is probably the best choice. It doesn’t need to be done immediately (good since I’ll be busy), it can be used to hold items for the baby, when she is older it can hold toys, and finally it can g...

05-20-2011 06:37 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

In this part I cover how I made the braces to insure the top stays flat, and I’ll use a router to cut the groves for the pipes to sit it that make of the main vise. I’ll also make the planning sled for the side. And for those who are wondering, yes I am wearing sandals.
