Alright guys,I have been planning this simple workbench for a while. This is actually my first large scale project for me and I was happy for it to be a workbench because to me it didn’t have to be a masterpiece. If I screwed up somewhere down the line, hopefully it wouldn’t be too noticeable so it was a good way for me to practice making mortise and tenon joints and becoming familiar with my equipment and develop my craftsmanship. Here is a list of the tools that I used to con...
Well this week was a busy week and I didn’t get to make a video project for this past Wednesday. So I thought I would Share this quick project video with you today. For a recent project I needed to make a larger version of an angle gauge to allow me to get the exact angle of an inside corner of a corner shower. After borrowing one from a fellow woodworker, I decided I needed one for the shop. Here is a look at making the simple but very useful over sized angle finder. These are commonly...
In High School we had a nice long bench in the back with a radial arm saw and I remember how convenient it was to have it when making long board cross cuts and having a block stop on the fence for multiple perfect cuts. Ever since then I’ve wanted to have something like this in my shop. Currently My saw has been sitting on my great grand father’s custom made steel bench from his jointer and shaper. Then if I need to cut a long board i have to set up a roller support bar which i...
Adding Splines To a Box Assumptions: I assume you have looked at the tutorial on making the splines themselves. The tutorial on cutting the splines slots with the jig there gives you a box that looks like this on the corner. The next step is to glue in the splines themselves. I should have pictured it, but I apply Tightbond’s Carpenter’s and Trim Glue to both the spline and the slot to assure there will be a good bond. This thicker glue is easier to work with, and ...

I am making a raised panel bench seat that is enclosed for the bedroom. As always, storage is at a premium at our place. I’m making this bench to go along a long wall will let us sit to put on our socks and still have a storage space. In my mind it will look like this. It’s just a sketch and that’s how I usually start. The length will be 54 inches and the height 20 inches. Since it’s actually a sitting bench it will be quite squat as a chest would be much taller.. ...

It has been a while since I updated my tool blog and it is high time I did. There have been a few new aquisitions here at the Framer household that I need to share with you guys. First up is an Ebay find. I am in the need for a good backsaw for some tenon cuts on my workbench build. I searched all the newer brands and some of the cheaper selections and they were either WAY out of my price range or just looked cheap and I already have a cheap one so no thanks. Off to the bay I went an...
When the table was last worked on, I had two sides in the clamps No, that isn’t a glue squeeze out running down the apron’s side, turns out it is a Powder post Beetle track. Sans Beetle, of course. I dry fitted the rest of the parts and laid out for some corner blocks. Gave me a chance to try out my new Miter box An Atkins 11 point panel saw. Got the four blocks cut, and some holes drilled. Needed a counter sink the set the screws in I chucked this one in the dri...
