I think it’s time for a new workbench. The old fold up table works ok for some things, but it’s not great for holding work flat and it’s too low. I got a ton of short 6/4 white oak boards from a local woodworker a few weeks ago. Since then, I have been stuck with the idea of making them into a workbench top and got a start on it today. The main features I’m planning are: 24” x 60” 2 1/2” Thick Front and End vise Round Dog holes 37...

It’s been a heck of a June. Two camping trips, a wedding, graduation parties, birthday parties, and needless to say – CC did not get her book case in time for graduation day. Oh well. She didn’t make a big deal. Today, I had some free time. I ripped down some boards and edge glued the top. A bit of sanding will be needed to clean up the faces. I cut and dadoed the plywood about 3 weeks ago and its been sitting in my basement shop during all these family events. A...
Ok, here we go The plane had a few problems, some from the saw guy not following the lines. So, the mouth was extra big Yep, way too big, and ugly. two, the wedge was too short, allowing the iron to chatter along. First problem to fix was the mouth opening. Happen to have a cut-off from the plane build. Grain should match. Block was a bit big, and I have no resaw stuff to use. Got out the big stuff Sat the block right on the bench’s leg, and gave the big ch...

OK, so I haven’t had much progress going on since my last update other than finishing up the glueup of the top. I still need to trim up the ends and get the skirt glued up but this is the end width of the top plus tool tray. Once I finished with that my wonderfully tuned and sharpened #6 arrived from Mauricio which showed me just how lacking and out of shape my current selection of tools were. So I have set upon a side mission of getting the tools I have collected to ...
Tonight I was finally able to use the 1” flush trim bit I got at Lowes the other day and trim back the edge of the shelf top to the template. With the template removed: Finally, after getting the edges sanded and the rounded profile made more round (with my new Rikon 1” belt/5” disk sander), the top/edges/ends sanded with 400 grit, and a quick wet down (to raise grain and get some of the dust out of the walnut grain): Next up is making final cuts to the back...
So i am embarking on my biggest and most involved project to date. My wife has wanted nightstands for our bedroom for quite awhile, and now that my shop is very well setup i’m going to give it a shot. We did alot of research for a design that we liked. Myself being a lover of all things G&G but my skill level being no where near what’s needed i had to comprimise. We settled on an A&C look that i began modifying. Being an architect by trade i was able to take an idea...
