Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #2: The Tops

03-16-2015 12:55 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

Well, the tops have taken longer than I anticipated. But it has turned out nice. The original Short Block V8 designed with a Torsten box top but I wanted a solid top. After lots of consideration I decided that I wanted the top to be Baltic Birch laminated on edge for the top. This would be consistent with the leg construction and would make for a very solid top. However this presented an issue as Baltic Birch is not cheap (best price here in Oregon, USA is $55.00 for a 5×5’ sheet...

building a bench and stuff #1: Workbench top

03-15-2015 09:58 PM by TheFridge | 22 comments »

(Quite a few pics with this blog) I guess I am a cheap and a glutton for punishment. Off cuts of poplar, red grandis, and a tiny bit of maple from a local cabinet shop. Plus some white and red oak scraps i had on hand. After jointing, planing, ripping and squaring the ends. Then laid out so the butted seams are offset. Starting the glue up of 1 of 3 7” laminations. Lamination 2 of 3 Gluing up after jointing and planing the 3 laminations. Cu...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #7: Fixing mistakes

03-15-2015 04:42 PM by ic3ss | 6 comments »

I forgot to update last week. I didn’t get much done because I was busy fixing a mistake. In episode 6 I showed a picture of the end tenon and the lead screw channel cut out. The weird thing is that the huge mortise cut into the end of the tenon. The mortise was too wide and I didn’t notice until last week I was thinking about it when I was in bed. That’s when I do my best thinking. I got up in the morning and checked the drawing and I was right. The drawing says the mortise...

Shaker Style End table #5: Getting things ready for a drawer..

03-15-2015 04:19 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, thanks to being allowed back at my “day job”, not too much has been done. I did get the stretcher glued into place.. And the front and back edges of the top jointed down level with the bread board edges Let the glue set up for a day or two ( Doctor visits and tests ) then attached the top. I figured it would be easier to do it now, rather than wiggle in past the runners for the drawer. Got the front of the drawer sized and fitted to the table. So I decided to...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #67: Wood Thickness Rant

03-10-2015 01:24 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

In my woodworking, either scroll saw or just regular, I strive to be as accurate as possible, perhaps obsessive. One of the things that is driving me nuts lately is the inconsistence of wood thickness. I purchase wood from either the big box hardware store or the two woodworking store in town. What I find, in general, is that if you select two pieces of wood that are marked as the same thickness, they are not. Sometime even 1/16 of an inch difference. Now if I had even a bench planer this ...

Shaker Style End table #2: Part #3 Mortise & Tenons...and aprons, too

03-07-2015 03:19 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, rested up most of the day. Towards evening, got a bit busy down in the Dungeon Shop. Decided to try to mill some tenons on the three main aprons. The two sides and the back one. The front will get something a bit different…tomorrow. Laid out some lines on the ends of an apron. Set up the #78 to take maybe a 1/2” wide by a hair under 1/4” deep cut…Couple clamps to hold the board still, while I scrubbed away the waste. Found out that I needed to #1:...

Shaker Style End table #1: Part #2 The top

03-06-2015 02:27 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, did a bit of saw work today. Figured up I needed 3 boards @ 3/4” x 5-1/2” x 25” Circular saw did the work, after I had clamped the 8’ long plank in place. Had enough left over to form the back apron. Dry fit in the pipe clamps, looks good, spread some yellow glue around and clamp them up. Later, after the glue had cured, started to surface the top. A few handplanes to do the job. Had some “marks” on one board that needed to go… ...

A Shaker Table Project, part #1....Legs

03-05-2015 04:53 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, went out to Lowes today, and spent just over a $20 bill. Brought home five boards. Going to try to build a Shaker Table, hopefully with a drawer in it. The wood supply? A 2×4x8’ two 1×6x8’, and a couple 1×8 x~ 3’ I do have some scraps of pine down in the Dungeon Shop, too. Figured out I needed four legs @ 1-1/2×1-1/2×30”, and took the 2×4 down the steps to the Dungeon… Placed to board across both benches. and ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #6: Flattening and starting on the tail vise

03-05-2015 04:02 AM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

Last night I snuck out to the shop to take the clamps from the front top that I glued up earlier that day and used them to glue up two of the legs. I just had to get it done before bed. This morning I just let them sit as I had other stuff to do. I started with flattening the bottom surface of the front top. I had to run it across the jointer in halves like I did with the back top and I thought I did ok but I realized that after running the top surface through the planer, that surface was...

Tips and Techiques #2: The Somewhat Invisible Hinge Tutorial

03-05-2015 03:49 AM by Jerry | 26 comments »

Okay, I was asked to post a how to for the, I guess I’ll start calling it “vanishing” hinge, since it’s not completely invisible. Anyway I struggled with posting this tutorial, because in this instance things went badly, but I think it’s just as important to publish the mistakes as the successes, because that way whoever reads this can see where the pitfalls are. So in the spirit of full disclosure, here goes. Okay, this tutorial is for 1/2” wood and dow...
