Building My Roubo Bench #1: Why I Decided to Build This

01-17-2012 03:13 AM by Andy Panko | 4 comments »

So after reading Christopher Schwarz’s book Workbenches: From Design and Theory to Construction and Use, I decided it was time I built myself a “real” workbench. I’ve had various bench-like structures that I’ve used as assembly tables, clamping areas, clutter storage, etc. My current “bench” is basically a large custom cabinet base with a formica top and an integrated Kreg measuring fence built on it that I use for making cuts on my miter saw....

Hand Planes #5: NY TOOL CO PLANE- Oilin' her up

05-25-2012 05:19 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Well I finally got around to getting some BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil). While I was waiting for the firehouse table stain to dry I grabbed a plastic container and squirted some BLO in it and placed the plane straight up and down. I must say I was highly impressed with how quickly it started to work. You could literally see the oil getting drawn up through the plane. In about 10 minutes it had pulled the oil up about an inch high (out of the 22” length of the plane). Post some more pics tomo...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #1: Preparing for the build

02-11-2015 02:07 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

Like many of us I have looked at all of those pictures of other people’s roubo workbenches with a jealous eye for quite some time. The ones built with Benchcrafted hardware just seemed to be top notch in quality, and they look like woodworker candy. I’ve had this build on my to-do list since 2011 because I don’t have a woodworking bench with woodworking vises or anything to hold my work down. I’m forced to use my old Unisaw as a bench and the best I can do is use a cla...

Shaker Media Cabinet #1: Shaker Media Cabinet #1

09-02-2009 06:44 PM by skeeter | 4 comments »

My customer really liked the documenting of my last project on this site so I’m at it again. This is a really big ( for me) cabinet for dvds. It’s dimensions are 82 high and 50 wide. Glass doors on top and solid doors on bottom. Sliding dovetails while I love the look and the strength are a pain in the ass. Just my opinion. Enjoy.the model drawing

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #15: Epoxy as a pesticide?

07-31-2013 04:37 PM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Today was a pretty productive day. I spent about 4 hours epoxying the joints and sides. The puke mouse Paul (shipwright) describes in his blog worked exactly as advertised. My technique requires some refinement but it sure did a tidy and quick job of laying down a fillet. I watched Sam Devlin’s primer on stitch and glue and he shows the filletting going between the stitches. I now see why. I broke 2 or 3 getting the stitches out. I will have to try the suggested heating of the wi...

Some new to me hand planes

08-23-2011 01:53 AM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

A good friend of mine is selling some of his planes which means I get to benfit from this activity. I was blessed with the acquisition of a jointer plane and a Stanley No. 5. Here are some pictures I took. I think the Stanley No. 5 is considered a jack plane. I recently learned that the manufacturer’s number cannot be used to guage the type, but it’s the length that determines the type and use – at least as far as Christopher Schwartz’s book on planes is concern...

The $5 Challenge Plane

08-25-2012 04:26 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

That I took upon myself. Got a box in the mail. Opened it up to…. WOW! Rusty and Crusty! Made of a Witch’s Brew and set some thing to soak awhile. I also got some supplies in house, charged up the cordless drill’ batteries, both of them. Tub for the soaking was from the Hospital stay last year. Didn’t have anything to “shock” it with, so, time for the wire wheels, and some sandpaper…Got the small items cleaned up a bit… ...

Bragging #2: Stanley #40 Scrub Plane

12-17-2010 05:14 AM by brianl | 4 comments »

As part of my $175 bench project I did a big glue-up of Douglas Fir boards. Over twenty boards went into the top and due to an oversight on my behalf I ended up bowing the top. In order to level it all out, I needed to take off a fair amount of material. I started to do just that with my number 5 jack plane but I quickly realized how daunting the task was. I knew I needed a better tool to tackle this beast of a problem.I started looking around for a number 40 scrub plane. After going thr...
