Workbench Build #31: Wagon Vise Cont'd......

07-20-2013 06:32 AM by Airframer | 17 comments »

So, we left off with this pile of steel waiting to be turned into a wagon vise… I started with one of the thin pieces. I measured and scored a line the full length to mark the depth of the channel for the 2 rails. Measured for the rail length.. Then with this piece on top I stacked all 3 pieces and clamped them together and cut the first rail to length with a cut off wheel in my angle grinder. Gotta love the smell of burnt metal in the morning :D Next w...

Workbench Build #30: Wagon Vise Build is a Go Finally..

07-19-2013 08:40 AM by Airframer | 10 comments »

This has been a relatively slow week build wise. I had a series of 15 hour nights at work which kept me out of the shop for most of it. I did, however, find a few minutes here and there to get some work done on the wagon vise for the bench. I need to knock this out so I can finish up the endcaps and get started on the leg vise and stretchers then finally assemble the darn thing. I am fashioning this after the benchcrafted wagon vise which is a departure from my original plan of the Ma...

Workbench Build #29: Finishing one endcap and cutting my first dovetails..

07-14-2013 05:57 PM by Airframer | 5 comments »

Yesterday started with the bench side of the Toolwell. I glued up the back wall the night before and yesterday morning it was time to remove the clamps and rip that to the correct thickness. I decided to do it this way so I could clamp the other side to this one as a cutting guide. It worked pretty well. A quick pass with the No 4 and it is done. Then I trimmed up the leading edge where the dovetails will be and started on the mortise in the endcap. I used the same process a...

Workbench Build #28: End Caps and Tool Well Started.. Two Steps Forward and Whatnot..

07-13-2013 12:43 PM by Airframer | 4 comments »

Well, yesterday was almost a wash. The day started strong. I got everything setup to rip the bench side tool well wall to size. Then I decided to kill a few electrons and use the circular saw to get the job done quickly. Simple enough right? Well the saw decided to go walking about halfway through the cut for some reason and basically made that piece of cherry unusable. That almost has me sworn off of power tools for all but the hardest tasks. With power tools when things go south it ha...

Workbench Build #27: Top Trimming and Prepping for the Deadman..

07-11-2013 05:08 AM by Airframer | 6 comments »

First things first I trimmed the tenons that I left long flush with the top. My HF flush cut saw took care of that pretty quickly. Then I wanted to square up one end of the bench. Eventually I will cut a tenon in here for the end cap. The other end is waiting on the end caps and wagon vise hardware to determine where it will be cut. Then I wanted to carve out the deadman groove before I forgot and ended up trying to cut it out upside down and backwards lol. I al...

Workbench Build #26: Standing on it's own 4 legs...

07-08-2013 05:59 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Time for some catch up and an update. Most of you who follow the workbench thread on the forum have already seen most of this but I feel compelled to keep this blog alive and I really need to resist the urge to spam the forum with progress updates and keep them here lol (sorry about that guys!). So we left off with the legs being glued up so naturally the next step was to square them up and make them more “leg” like. I had to get creative with the clamping to make this happen...

2 Board Modular Bookshelf - Woodworking Basics

06-29-2013 10:51 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

This modular bookshelf is a great project for beginning woodworkers and you veteran woodworkers as well. Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself. Add some color and it makes a great display and shelving unit for a kids room. Give it a try.

Southwest Cocktail table #4: Another Dry Fit Test

06-22-2013 02:38 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 7 comments »

Howdy, Wouldn’t you know. I cut part of the border from paduak. I was real careful to get it just perfect. It Ain’t. I’ll get if fixed up because I once again have a nervous tendency to err on the side of “Too Big”. You know – shaving 86 of these suckers will once again – suck. Grandpa Len sent me a very kindly note telling me I need to put this creation on a backer. Well – he’s right of course. I was already courting disaster by...

Southwest Cocktail table #2: Simplify ..... sort of....

06-19-2013 04:41 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

My first take was too busy, muddy and lacked contrast. I decided to take what was working and go from there. I definately wanted to keep the Navajo mountain pattern in the Bubinga. Here is where the project is at the moment because – that’s all I have. ;) I’m not going to use Oak. All of the lighter colored wood will be cherry. I’ll be adding a paduak border a bit later. I may be addidng in some peruvian Walnut (Never heard of such a thing until today. Nex...
