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...

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...

Workbench Build #25: Forward Progress finally... Top Glue Up done and Legs started..

06-08-2013 06:27 PM by Airframer | 7 comments »

So, it has been a few months since I have done any work on the bench. I think I needed a mental reset and to get through the rest of my wife’s pregnancy distracted by small projects. Now that that is over with and my shop is in a manageable condition again finally I can get back to work on this elephant of a project. Having a newborn in the house has limited my available time in the shop but that seems to have focused my energy when I DO get in there to get something done while ...
