Cherry finger jointed box #4: Bottom panel and other things

08-23-2016 07:30 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, I was going to clear a path to my mitresaw bench, but. I’d have to move a lot of “stuff” out of the way, just to use that mitre saw clear back by the wall, just for these three cuts? Well, THAT ain’t going to happen, so how about I clear off the bench’s top, and add a smaller mitre saw there? One, I unfold the GEM, add four screws to attach it to the bench’s top. That saw was way too big. And, must have been a thicker saw used at some po...

My Workbench Saga #1: Three tries to get a good bench.

06-16-2012 11:30 PM by Bob B. | 3 comments »

My Workbench Saga I am a relatively new woodworker. I had grand visions of building furniture when I started on this quest nearly five years ago but all I have managed to actually build are storage sheds, animal shelters, and a couple of amateur shelving units that I am embarrassed to show anyone with real skills. My journey toward building an actual piece of furniture I can be proud of has progressed in fits and starts. I have read countless books, magazines, web articles, and forum posts...

Roubo-ish work bench #1: Laminating the Top

01-02-2017 05:37 PM by galooticus | 1 comment »

First blog post! I’ve been making shavings for about two years now using this monstrosity vaguely resembling a bench: It’s the most incredible bench ever, measuring in at a roomy 11’ long and 36” high. Has two shelves and even supports a kitchen sink attachment, however the previous owner either didn’t spring for it or took it with them. EVERY surface is curved (great for setting planes bottom-down, no need to worry about the blade dulling) and it rocks...

Shop storage projects #16: Top is done....

01-27-2017 12:17 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

So, I am getting close to drawer building time? Ok, decided a 2 hour tour today would be about all this old body could handle….Started to build the frame for the top….had a few things to “finesse” first. One end of the long rail was a bit too thick…..marked out where to remove the excess wood….bandsaw to remove the worst and a plane to smooth things out. The mitre cuts were a bit off, re-did those, and made sure the rails matched each other. I f...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #15: Pretty much done

04-01-2015 11:02 PM by ic3ss | 13 comments »

I put in an eleven hour day yesterday on this thing, the work was really kind of fun compared to the tedious work of digging out mortises of the day before. I’ve never tried the draw bore method of locking a mortise and tenon together. I didn’t even use clamps. Well this morning I just had to get the tops to fit on the tenons, so after trimming back a couple of mortise surfaces they both fit down snugly, a very sweet fit. As a bonus, the sides of the tops ended up flush wit...

Stanley #4 Type 9 or 10 - Plane Restoration #1: The cleanup

02-26-2008 05:54 PM by sIKE | 7 comments »

I have learned that projects in progress go in the blog and the completed project goes in project. The first part of this series I started as a project and I am now moving it here untill the project is compelete. Here are the metal pieces after cleanup. I used Evapo Rust to clean these pieces, though I had started on the body with wire wheel and wire brushes. The rest ended up even worse, I had put them into a plastic bin and add some solvents to keep them from rusting any more utill I cou...

Cutting Boards #3: First Glue Up

03-20-2012 02:58 PM by MolokMot | 0 comments »

Each of the strips is milled cut and ripped to the following dimensions: Thickness: Little less than 1” Width: 1.5” Length: 21” There are Five strips each of maple and cherry. I glued up the panel in two sections using an extra maple strip to separate them. Two strips on the end are glued together, but are not glued to the adjacent maple spacer strip or the other 8 strips. I did this primarily because I only have so many clamps at this point and my planner is only 10&#...
