My First Workbench #41: Leg Vise Chop: Seating the Garter

09-10-2013 10:42 PM by RaggedKerf | 8 comments »

Good news bad news kind of day. Twice. The first thing that hit me today was that the bare spot I had filed into the threads on the leg vise “screw” (really a 5/8” threaded rod from the Borg) for the first chop won’t work on v2 because the chop is twice as thick. Soooo…half an hour of filing and I had this: Then I started making the garter. First I measured out a 2.5” square of 1/2” oak. Then took it to the drill press and punched ...

IN this video I go over how to refinish a fish tank stand. In this project I used 20 random orbit sander discs. I should have used a finish remover but its to late now but I finished sanding it with 220 grit paper and then I put 4 coats of polyurathane.

New "Antique" Lathe Stand #4: Out with the old, in with the,.. well,.. much older.

07-26-2010 12:05 AM by scottb | 1 comment »

After the final phase of glue up for the legs, putting the top on was a piece of cake. Clamp, countersink, screw, (so it can be adjusted if ever necessary)¬†and this puppy is ready for work. Well, it’s ready for it’s close up,... then work (or play) depending on your perspective. Goodbye workmate,¬†Hello, nurse! I left in that metal plate on the ends. For looks and added weight. Plus it makes a handy chisel holder! As you can see by the outsid...

Looking for salvage ideas

05-23-2008 03:04 AM by Greg Wurst | 5 comments »

My neighbor was throwing-away a stair railing and I hate to see oak go to waste: My initial though is to tear it apart and salvage the square pieces and rip the base into a couple strips. That still leaves a lot of scrap wood, so I’m looking for idea on what I can possibly do with it. If you have any suggestions, let me know. Thanks, Greg

Workbench Build #37: Finishing up the Toolwell... All downhill from here.. I think..

08-10-2013 09:34 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

We last ended with the second dovetail and the end caps mortised for the tool well ends. After a week of no progress in the shop I finally had some time this weekend to get something done. To start I needed to cut the remaining dovetails so I would know where the dados should stop to not be seen on the out side of the bench. I am sooooo glad this is over with. I would love to say I got better with each one but I really didn’t. I did learn something new on each one but the mista...

Tattoo Table #1: Just getting started

02-11-2008 05:53 AM by Boon | 4 comments »

So i was recently given a chance to make a coffee table for my local tattoo shop, and while they aren’t picky, i do have about a $300 limit, maybe more if I really impress. Today i started drawing up plans and looking up stuff online. so far the table top will be 62×34 inches with runners, stretchers and prefab legs. which brings me to my next question, where is the best place to look that has the biggest assortment of 12 to 16 inch turned/tapered legs? i did a google search but wa...

Oak Pub Table #4: Glue ups and sanding are finished

09-03-2010 05:25 AM by VinnieP | 1 comment »

I am ever so close to staining. All of the gluing and sanding is done as of now. I’m going to give everything a once over to see if there are any more spots that needed sanding. Otherwise, I’m ready to start staining. I am going to stain the top before attaching it. Here is the post all glued up: This is a close up of the arms. The groove you see was routed in. The buttons I made previously will help connect the top. This is how it looks without the top on: And h...

Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #5: Corbels, Arc, Mortises & First Dry Fit

11-27-2012 02:37 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

Using my Sketchup model as a reference I drew the shape of the corbels onto the prepared stock, and cut it out roughly on the bandsaw. Then with sandpaper and a card scraper I smoothed them out to their final shape. I forgot to take a photo of the setup for drawing the arc, but basically I bowed a piece of plywood to the correct vertical distance at the center point of the arc and traced the curve with a pencil. Cut it out roughly on the bandsaw, and smoothed it out with sandpaper. Th...
