Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench #1: Milling the pieces

01-01-2013 09:29 PM by lysdexic | 23 comments »

When I ordered the BenchCrafted hardware I also ordered the hardware for the Moxon vise. Not only was I inspired by BrandonW’s bench but also his Moxon vise. So, it has been sitting in my shop for about nine months. Brandon’s Moxon Vise The plan is to make a Moxon Vise Bench-top Bench because when I doing fine work I find myself slumping over for extended periods of time. That kind of zaps the fun of it after a while. Furthermore, I admit to being spoiled when comes to h...

My Benchcrafted Split Top Roubo build #1: Split Top Roubo base construction

12-26-2012 12:05 AM by jasondain | 8 comments »

This is part 1 of my blog on how I built my workbench. The bench is now complete but i’ll be adding the steps i used to build it and lots of photos here so others may benefit from what I learned in the process. Happy Reading! I constructed the base using 8/4 Sugar Maple. I had agonized a bit over the wood selection and considered soft-maple, white ash and even douglas fir as possibilities. I chose sugar maple for its durability as I wanted this to be the uber-workbench and I coul...

Pie Safe #1: A beginning

12-22-2012 01:34 PM by scamp238 | 5 comments »

My daughter and I are building a pie safe. Well, my daughter is building and i am supervising. She doesn’t seem to have much fear of the tools, so that is good. I have helped her with setting up the machines and giving advice, but she basically has done it all. She is 17 years old and a senior in high school. Anyway, here are a few pictures of what we have done so far. The design is roughly what is found in the 1988 Woodsmith magazine. I am pretty pleased with the results so far. ...

movie on cutting a ipe hardwood log in a Bolivian mill with a 7" wide bandsaw

12-21-2012 10:22 PM by Harry Montana | 4 comments »

the principle is a wagon (brand Schiffer) which goes up and down on a rail and the bandsaw (brand Langer) is in a fixed position. For entire mill to operate like this you need 26 employees. Fully automatic mills are available but not recommendable because they get damaged and who is going to repair difficult electronics in the middle of the jungle in a country like Bolivia where there is no spare parts… operating bandsaw cutting ipe boards – 1 operating bandsaw cutting ipe boar...

Obelisks #2: Making an obelisk incense burner

12-19-2012 05:56 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

Here are the steps I used to make an obelisk incense burner. I selected a 3 1/2” square by 7” long piece of pretty wood. Box elder in this case. I made a drawing to scale and then had to plan the steps in the process so I did not get ahead of my self because it would be impossible to do some of the steps out of order. Being an incense burner it need air flow to keep the cone burning. I started with the top vent holes while the block was whole. 4 -3/16 holes on a 3/4”...

Making a violin....maybe #1: The begining. A hair brained idea at attempting something kinda crrazy.

12-11-2012 12:59 PM by Ted78 | 16 comments »

Violin construction has always intrigued me and I got a bug in my bonnet about 10 years ago to make a violin. No, I haven’t actually made one yet. Just a lot of false starts. I have carved a couple of tops and backs. first top I made I modelled (unwittingly) from a 3/4 size violin, I carved a back out of maple. I’d read somewhere that’s what the backs and ‘ribs’ the sides are made of. Turns out they are made of soft maple and I used hard maple. I made myse...

Three 2x8's, Three afternoons, One coffee(ish) table #1: Day 1> Prep and glue up

12-10-2012 10:04 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

My daughter, is obtaining her post doctorate in Boston, has a small apartment with a room she lives out of. Her request, a sort of coffee table with second function as ‘sit on the floor’ desk. Also, something she can kick around and as she changes apartments sometimes, something she can move easily and even leave behind if the move is long distance.I love making furniture and I’ve made my share of higher end stuff, but I've made a few things out of home depot framing lumber ...
