Workbench Build #13: Moxon In Work... The vise to help build the bench.

02-22-2013 01:52 PM by Airframer | 0 comments »

Just a quick update before I leave for work. I was trying to clean up one of the legs last night with a hand plane and realized this is not an easy task without a vise of some sort. That prompted me to start building the Moxon vise that is in the plans for the bench first. I can then use it to help build the rest of the bench. I’ll get more detailed into the process once it’s finished but here is some teaser shots for you guys. Stay tuned more to come!

Workbench Build #12: First real issue.. Suggestions needed

02-21-2013 02:37 AM by Airframer | 11 comments »

I finally got fed up with tripping over things and wading through a sea of saw dust last night. That was all it took to finally clean up the mess made by the ripping process and reset to start on the base. After sweeping up and re-stacking Still need to clean off the wall benches though! As I was re-stacking the lumber I noticed some issues with the 4X6 fir posts I had bought for the legs. I went with those because A) They were inexpensive and easily acquired at Home De...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

Workbench Build #11: Wagon Vise Hardware..Mostly Done..

02-19-2013 01:51 AM by Airframer | 4 comments »

Spent the day piecing together and cutting iron for the wagon vise hardware and skid. As I had mentioned in the previous post this is what I am getting my inspiration from… I am using the same hand wheel as on the leg vise just a smaller diameter. I have also added a tapered copper fitting to the end of the screw that fits into a bearing that will be pressed into the wood under the table to add both stability to the screw and a bit more of a smooth crank. I wasn’t able...

Workbench Build #10: Finished cutting the top and started planning out the wagon vise..

02-17-2013 11:25 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

FINALLY! Finished rough dimensioning of the wood for the top. In the process have become good friends with my Skill Saw.. even though it is only the cheap 12A model it is a beast and a work horse lol. I have also decided to cheat and count it as a “had tool” since I hold it in my hand and push it with my hand lol.. so this is still mostly hand tool built so far! Rough dimensions of the top are 2 5/8” X 23 1/2” x 75” and that will reduce down a bit after I s...

Workbench Build #7: Picked up the last pieces of the puzzle today..

02-09-2013 08:37 PM by Airframer | 5 comments »

I visited my local orange store today and picked up the materials for the base. I am using 4×6 Douglas Fir for the legs and 4×4 DF for the stretchers. I had to have them rough cut them to size so they would fit in my car and I might still need to go back and get a bit more but this will get me going. I also got a new toy. A 9” bandsaw to help with some of the ripping. I was trying to avoid using too many power tools on this but I don’t think I am up to ripping by ...

Getting Organized with recessed Shelf Units

01-23-2013 09:37 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 3 comments »

In my last video I showed you all the renovation of the old shop space, during that renovation, I made some recess cavities in one wall of the shop. In this video I walk you through the steps of making the recess shelf unit to go into those cavities. These recess shelves are not just for the shop, they can be used in the home as well! Add some glass shelves and you have a nice knick-knack display shelf, or use them around the home for any organizing needs.
