Making a workbench, without a workbench #2: Laminating the top (with video)

811 days ago by Paul Sellers | 12 comments »

Making the Workbench with Paul Sellers If the video below is not working please use this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru2ZiNsWek This replicates my personal workbench, one I have used and preferred over all others for, well, actually, half a century. Let’s talk briefly about benches and specifically working workbenches and not images of what a bench should be. Anyone can build any bench type they like, regardless of whether it works well or not, is big and clunky and la...

Sharpening #4 and 4 1/2 bench planes

936 days ago by Paul Sellers | 16 comments »

At the risk of bringing further controversy into the field of woodworking I thought we should build on the successes forged in the chisel sharpening YouTube video. You might be interested in this method that I use because it was also used by craftsmen for at least two centuries. I have written several blogs, posts and forums previously about the #4 bench plane, the best of which in my view is the plainest of planes, the exceptionally humble and most underestimated and undervalued Stanl...

Making a workbench, without a workbench #1: Introduction and choosing wood, why I use pine

813 days ago by Paul Sellers | 17 comments »

This is a series that I have started that I will be doing over the next few weeks on my blog and on YouTube. For those of you that follow my blog, there will be quite a bit of duplication but I really enjoy the discussions and questions on Lumberjocks so I want to replicate it on here in, possibly, a slightly different format. Make your own bench First of all make your own bench with confidence. I will help you through every stage and in a few days, no more than say four, you will ha...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #3: A look under her skirt....

883 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 11 comments »

I got your attention with that title, so here’s the picture….. I began to cut the hole for the vise two nights ago, last night I actually got it mounted. I had to use 3 layers of plywood to get the clearance I needed to mount it. (I’ll try and get a picture of that when I’m under the bench again. I’m not picking it up again if I can help it.) I had my 10 year old nephew help me mount it and here are the results… I have one coat of BLO ...

Plane soles should be mostly flat

926 days ago by Paul Sellers | 14 comments »

Here is a post I did recently and now want to show you how to do it through a short video. This is not the same plane shown below but it is all the same procedure I use for smoothing planes: Something I have wanted to post on for a while. Next week I will be using a Stanley #4 at the Springfield New Jersey Show and the Fredericksburg Virginia Show Masterclasses I will be teaching for The Woodworking Shows show. It’s an eBay find for £8 – $12. This plane is and always was an amazing...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #1: She's got legs.....

889 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 7 comments »

I’ll skip the boring parts, like the glue up of the legs and material choice. I will say that I had intended to build my own designed bench sometime last year. I was sold on a certain author’s idea of an awesome Roubo style bench. I got Paul Sellers’ Working Wood, book and dvd set at Christmas this year, and it completely changed my way of thinking. But you didn’t come here for ramblings, you want to see pictures…... There they are, pretty aren&#...

Strongest mitre for picture frame - How I made it

928 days ago by Paul Sellers | 4 comments »

Moulding the stock Following up from the video film on the strength of these mitres. These are the steps I took to make this picture-frame moulded and inlaid stock and the frame itself. It’s dead straight forward using a pair of wooden T&G planes, a moulding plane, a tenon saw and a plane. You can make a simple shooting board with stop screwed to a board at 45-degrees or a proper one with removable stops. I took about 45 minutes to make it. Mould the stock with the moulding plane. I...

Chopping the mortise--Bevel edged or traditional mortise chisel (video)

788 days ago by Paul Sellers | 17 comments »

Chopping the mortise—Bevel edged or traditional mortise chisel I recently saw a Youtube video put together by Lie Nielsen where it shows a mortise being cut behind glass; the idea was to show the progression of the traditional method using a traditional ‘pig-sticker’ mortise chisel and I understand it was Roy Underhill who came up with the idea, which was wonderful.     As a boy in school I was shown this method and indeed we were trained that w...

Dovetail box in Mahogany and Poplar (in 4 parts) #1: four corners and planed in 10 minutes (1 of 4)

1009 days ago by Paul Sellers | 52 comments »

Hi Everyone, Well, I promised that I would do this. Here is a video I did at the castle last night. The woods are mahogany and poplar. I believe that this is a realistic way to make dovetails for a quick box or drawer. I always take a bit more time and care on finer projects. Hope you enjoy!
