Holtzapffel Workbench #2: Base assembly complete

03-11-2009 05:00 AM by cylis007 | 3 comments »

I have completed the base assembly finally. The stretchers and legs are permanently attached using the drawbore technique. I still have to cut the pins flush and chamfer the edges. I made dowels from an oak board using a dowel plate. What a forearm workout! Other than assembling the base, I have been getting a game plan together for the top and face vise. The next thing that I need to do is prep the boards for the top. I have cut the boards a little over 6ft. long and will begin ...

A Credenza Base Cabinet

05-18-2010 08:59 AM by Troy | 5 comments »

A few weeks ago, I conducted a consult with a local client in the neighborhood about their damaged credenza cabinet base. They wanted the top repaired or rebuilt, but upon inspection, it turned out that the entire cabinet was beyond saving. The amount of weight on it over the years, including a hutch, took it’s toll. After a few days, I sent them a design to view and they agreed to a new cabinet, one built to withstand far more weight which would be a pseudo-replica. In order to keep it econo...

Workbench Build #35: Endcap Part Deux....

07-26-2013 09:10 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

Now that the wagon vise is sorted out and functioning quite well I might add (am having too much fun with it right now tbh).. Last night after work (1am.. pretty sure my neighbors hate me right now) I decided to go ahead and make the 1” dog for the vise. Fairly straight forward. Sanded the 1” dowel slightly to give it a smooth fit (using the vise to do it no less :D ) Then cut to length, cut an angled notch at the top and then used my 1/4” chisel to cut a grove d...

My First Workbench #42: Leg Vise Chop Finished

09-14-2013 01:13 AM by RaggedKerf | 7 comments »

Finally wrapped this project up, after some setbacks. To correct the angled chop I had to see what was the problem: the hole drilled in the chop or the hole drilled for the coupler buried in the leg? First I tested the hole in the leg: Clearly, the threaded rod exiting the leg is off of perpendicular. Then, before I attacked the solution, I decided to check the chop: Huh. It’s off too! So, after some hand wringing, cussing, and a few beers, I took the case online ...

Sgabello di Fossacesia #1: Make a Chair From an Oar

08-14-2014 03:17 AM by Woodbridge | 7 comments »

Last summer my cousin gave me an old oar and asked if I could use it for one of my projects. It was about eight feet long. I new immediately that I could easily use the oar for one of my chair projects. It fits exactly with the type of chair I like to build – three legs with a tall slender back. Now there is some family history associated with this oar. My mother immigrated to Canada in 1949 with her parents, four sisters and brother. Her father’s brother, wife and seven...

This week in urban logging #5: It's been awhile since my last report.

08-06-2008 07:54 PM by Daren Nelson | 11 comments »

The logs have slowly trickled in…until this morning, I scored nicely. I have not seen this guy the last couple weeks. He has been bringing me a load once a week, he brought a nice one today . 25 logs 8’-14’ long. The smallest was a cherry just over 12”, most in the 18”-24” range. Cherry, walnut, hickory, red oak, white oak, honeylocust and hard maple. These should keep me out of trouble for a couple days . The walnut is iffy (crooked) the oaks and hickory a...
