Roubo Workbench Build #5: Milling, gluing and making the pieces - Done!

06-30-2013 02:01 AM by Willeh | 4 comments »

Well, finally getting somewhere! After weeks and weeks of milling, gluing, milling, gluing, milling gluing and so on, the parts are finally together! Since my last post, I got all of the leg and stretcher boards milled down, glued up, and planed down to final size, ready to go to start with the joinery and assembly. I also finally got the top together. I decided on doing a wagon vice on the top, and bought the lee valley vice hardware. The 17 boards that make up the top were glued into ...

Pine tool box, Stanley Style #1: Start ups

01-18-2016 01:38 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, while going through the local Menards Store, went over and dug through there Value Wood rack…they were selling 1×10s and 1×12s, all under 3’ long. Picked through to get the clearer stuff. Wound up with five boards, for $1.69 each.. And, since the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up was “off-line” had to actually draw something on paper.. About as close to an actual “plan” as I get. Even drew a “page 2” Wore out the penci...

Maple/oak project/desk #1: Part 1, needed to mill a few boards

06-24-2015 09:56 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Came home with a nice stack of fancy hardwood planks. Thanks to the people that got them for me. Let them sit around in the Dungeon Shop for awhile, until I got tired of not being able to use my bench. Starting to cut down a candidate for a slant top….whatever.Was a bit curly grain, and a few knots. Worked it flatter with a small jointer/fore plane That big old No. 6c was a bit too long, so a Millers Falls Junior Jack took over. was having a bit of trouble with the grain ...

My new Roubo #11: The base is COMPLETE! (with pics)

02-13-2011 07:12 AM by JasonD | 4 comments »

FINALLY!!! After several weeks of little to no shop time each day, I finally hit another major milestone. The base is complete; glued up and sitting in the clamps for the night. The past few weeks have been crazy for me: new projects at work, a battle with the flu, getting 15 of my students ready for a competition, etc. I was able to manage about 30 minutes of shop time every other night at best. It was 14 days of knocking out one little task after another until it all came to fruition. I ...

1st fiddle by ROY D #7: carving top

05-12-2009 04:17 PM by roy | 4 comments »

here is the start of my “attempt” at carving a fiddle top. I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter. http://picasaweb.google.com/roydahlgren/FirstFiddle#

Saw vise build

01-02-2014 02:11 AM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

I have been in desperate need of a better way to hold my saws for sharpening. My old setup( two sticks of wood ~26 inches long which I would clamp onto saw plate and my vise) was simply not cutting it (sawing pun intended). I thought about purchasing vintage, but everyone always complained of bad vibrations, they are overpriced at antique shops, and I didn’t want to reposition my saw 4 times for full sized handsaws. I really liked Andy’s (Brit) design. It was economical, sturdy...

Pie Safe #3: More progress

01-08-2013 11:45 PM by scamp238 | 4 comments »

My daughter has been making some progress on the pie safe. She has gotten it almost to where you can tell what it is going to be. She has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I have a question, are there anyShe has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I would love to hear some ideas. By the way, the panel was punched using a sharpened nail and a hammer. I thought it came out good. We opted for a bread box opening ...

03-29-2018 10:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

Starting to tackle the base of the guitar stand. The piece of walnut came from the firewood pile. This is a recurring role for this piece as it is the one I used in the video checking out the 6” Bosch 1250 DEVS sander. But since you’re subscribed, you know that, right?...lol. View on YouTube

DIY HAND PLANES #1: shoulder plane based on Mafe and Div info

05-04-2014 01:56 AM by cyclops4069 | 4 comments »

Having now made my first hand plane, I was eager to try something a little more challenging. Something about the shape and delicacy of the components that made up a shoulder plane (and in particular the small shoulder planes that Mafe had been playing with in one of his Blog builds, also based on Div’s beautiful shoulder plane that he gifted to Mafe)....I think I was just hypnotised by the beauty of both of these planes and needed to make one. Firstly I decided on the style and the d...
