The Ultimate Workbench as designed and used by

10-06-2011 06:21 PM by David LaBolle | 9 comments »

This is a non traditional workbench designed and built by a homebuilder as his work site saw table. It is a fairly simple design, yet quite sophisticated at the same time. It is very well thought out and quite useful. What makes this one special is the way he designed it to give you space to keep your tools all at hand, but not taking up space on the work surface. I have a feeling that many of the Lumber Jocks here will appreciate it and perhaps want to use it for inspiration. This is u...

Time for new storage.

10-01-2011 05:04 PM by tom427cid | 18 comments »

Lately I have added to my accumulation of wood planes and unfortunatly run out of storage for them. I wasn’t to bad until my friend-who is cleaning out his shop and moving to smaller quarters-presented me with the wood planes that he had. So now the challenge is to come up with some sort of cabinet to keep everything in one place. All the way from a 28” jointer to a 6” trimmming plane,all the hollows and rounds,T&G sets,fillisters,sash planes, and leave room ...

Arts & Crafts - Living room tables #3: Legs and support assembled and glued up

10-01-2011 04:48 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 1 comment »

I assembled the legs & supports for the table. It’s all glued up. It’s more wobbly than I would have thought given the wood was straight and the M&T joints were solid. Not sure where I went wrong. Next step finishing and then attaching the top. We bought the entry level Kreg joint jig so I’m thinking about using that for the attachment of the top. Not sure if expansion will be an issue. The top is plywood, but the base is 2×4s.

Cheap Kitchen Table #3: Improved leg design

10-01-2011 11:26 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

You spoke and I listened. We made corner blocks for the legs so that they should be plenty strong enough. Here’s a picture with the corner blocks installed into the bottom and top horizontals. These were the most difficult and dangerous thing we’ve ever made in the workshop. They took dangerous cuts on the miter saw and table saw. We will never do them again and will make a jig next time to be safer. Here’s what the side verticals looks like next to the horizon...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #470: Holy Distractions, Batman! (But oh, aren't they fun?) :)

09-23-2011 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

You know that feeling you get when you see a project and you just HAVE to make it? Well, that happened to me the other day. On Tuesday I received my copy of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and I saw the most darling little compound cut bats in it that were designed by my friend Diana Thompson. They were right there flying around on the cover: Well, Geeze Louise! WHY did she have to go and make something so darn cute?!? Doesn’t she know I have other things to do??? I...

Cheap Kitchen Table #2: Design for Legs of Cheap Kitchen Table

09-18-2011 04:24 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

My kitchen table is cheap, really cheap. But it looks decent. So far it’s a plastic table with a plywood top. I want to have legs so that the table can slide under the kitchen bench. Here’s the new leg design. The legs should cost less than $5 since they are only two of 2×4s. Joinery connecting the legs will be through tenons and the top will be joined to the legs with Kreg pocket screws.

Nicholson Bench #1: Getting started

09-09-2011 01:11 PM by mpmitche | 5 comments »

Last night I started working on my workbench. I’m roughly following the Schwarz’s plan from his workbench book (which I really enjoyed). I only had a few minutes between other projects but had time to sharpen my xcut panel saw and then xcut the legs and end braces from BORG 2×12’s. Next will be to rip them down; I may need to sharpen my rip saw as well but at least it is a full length 5 ppi rip saw. The short xcut saw cuts well but a few more inches of length would ...
