Roubo-ish work bench #3: Stretchers

05-14-2017 04:18 PM by galooticus | 2 comments »

Ah, stretchers. These were made from douglas 4×4s—the B-stock pieces that didn’t make the cut when laminating the top. Compared to the leg-top tenons, this stage was a breeze. As I mentioned in the last blog post, I ditched my old bench and am working entirely on the new bench from this point on. First things first, I put in a single dog hole so I could make use of a hold fast. This is the first time using anything other than irwin quick clamps for workholding. So muc...

A Look at a Mini Kanna

05-04-2017 03:19 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

I have very few tools. In keeping with my living space but also in keeping with my belief that skills should surpass the tools that are used. In my mind it makes more sense to be able to make your own tools. So I was attracted to the Japanese thoughts of minimalism in both their tools and their methods. A mini kanna was something I’ve wanted for quite a while. it’s difficult to find one that is high quality new in the US (online or otherwise), but I found a maker (in Japan) tha...

My first big build, and what a journey it's been. Yet another workbench. #4: Fitting the vises and finishing up

08-31-2015 11:04 PM by Lind | 1 comment »

After a lot of planing and a lot of sanding I arrived at the above, and was ready to fit the vises. (By the way, the white spots are filler used to seal and fill som nasty planing marks where the grain switched direction… Next time I’m buying better wood.) I wanted a leg vise, but wasn’t decided on whether I was going to go with a standard parallel guide with a pin or if I wanted to try a pinless design. I haven’t used a lot of benches but the pin just didn’t...

new tool (sort of) Bench Stop

05-24-2015 03:25 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Bench stop!I have an “out door” work bench out by my garage. it stays covered with a tarp most of the time. I’ve been working against a wooden peg that frequently slips. So Yesterday I took an old RR spike I had lying around. It is almost the right shape to start with! made sure I knew where my helper was: lit a fire: and started banging on it! when I was happy with the shape of it, I put the fire out and let it cool. it neither needs or wa...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #8: Beginning Cuts on Saw Bench/Saw Horses

03-06-2015 01:18 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Cheap tools (except for the Starrett combination square – left over from my metal fabrication days) are getting the job done for now. My saw cuts are getting better. Fairly square – they need to be since I haven’t dug out my jack plane and my block plane needs sharpening, and I don’t have a solid place to hold anything down yet. I’m using my Swiss Army knife to mark my cut-lines and putting a shallow kerf line on three (or sometimes four) sides befo...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #7: Remainder of yellow pine lumber for workbench

03-04-2015 06:38 PM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Here is the remainder of the yellow pine that I need for my workbench. I had decided to give this thing legs and a skirt (hmm, sounds bad I know – hey maybe it’s a Scottish bench? LOL). The 2 X 12 was for the skirts on the front and the back, and the 2 X 8’s were for leg stretchers. I had 6 pieces of center ripped 2 X 10’s left over from making the top that I could use to make the legs. Still deciding whether to make a regular workbench or stay with my original plan of...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #5: Getting Close to Full Width

02-22-2015 02:53 PM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

I ended up gluing inside my apartment where it was warmer. Ice and snowoutside. It is wide enough now that it won’t fit inside the glue box anyway. All 12 boards glued up. I think that I will add 2 more to make it 21” wide. Finally got a decent picture of all 14 boards glued up. Now to find help carrying it down to the garage when the weather turns nicer. It weighs over a hundred pounds. Not bad.
