Workbench #11: Moving right along... finally.

12-29-2011 07:57 AM by HungryTermite | 1 comment »

So… after almost 300 days and some major life changes since my last post (including moving and having to set up the “shop” all over again) I finally got back to my Roubo. I’ve hit the point in this project where it is starting to test the limits of my tools, my skills, my strength, and my patience. When I first started this project I tended to let the design drift to the heavier side thinking that the extra mass would be good. While this is probably true, once the b...

My new Roubo #6: Beefing up the legs

01-05-2011 06:28 AM by JasonD | 1 comment »

Originally, my legs were going to be 3-3/4” x 4-3/4”. After I got my top glued up, I decided that I wanted a little more beef in the legs. I had enough lumber left over that was already acclimated to my shop. I spent a little time yesterday dressing up the legs and put in a bit of time tonight getting the new pieces planed true and ready to add to the leg laminations. Because of my limited number of clamps, I was only able to get 3 of them glued up so far. Taking a break to wat...

My new Roubo #1: Legs...lots of sweat, lots of shavings

11-28-2010 03:57 AM by JasonD | 1 comment »

I first got into woodworking a year ago when my wife and I bought our first house. At the time, my son and I built a makeshift workbench using 2×4s, plywood, hardboard, and a $20 vise from Lowes. It’s served me well in building some cabinets for the house, but it’s seriously lacking in a lot of ways. Being a big fan Christopher Schwarz’s books, DVDs, and blogs, I’ve been wanting to build a Roubo-style bench for months. I finally got a break in my honey-do proje...

Workbench #7: Laying out the legs

02-28-2011 06:21 AM by HungryTermite | 1 comment »

Yesterday I took the leg blanks back to the jointer and the planer and got them down to a hair over 5” x 5”. One of them ended up a hair under. I found out during this process that the depth stop on the Makita planer does not handle anything 5 inches thick so it was a little tricky to try to get all 4 pieces exact. All that will be left to do on these is to hit them with a smooth plane to take off the plane tracks, which are barely even visible. It will also fix the “...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #11: Four More Down, Eight More To Go

03-24-2011 03:43 PM by Eric | 1 comment »

Here’s a quote from my last post: I am making progress on the bench, but as before, I get hung up mentally when I come to big steps in the process. Guess when I wrote my last post? About 2 months ago. Yep, got to another big step in the process and got hung up mentally. Well that, and also just lost my motivation entirely for a few weeks there. I’m back! So gluing four boards onto a 28-board benchtop shouldn’t really be a “big step” in the process, right? ...

Workbench build - roubo #2: The top

02-28-2014 12:14 AM by buck_cpa | 1 comment »

For the top, I decided to use construction grade 2×4s. However, I did not realize that I was short by a few when I started. My father in law gave me some redwood 2×6s from a deck he took down a few years ago. He told me all the rich people in Belle Meade, TN used to have their decks built from the stuff, but now you can’t find the stuff anywhere. The 2×6s he gave me were rotten for first inch. I ripped it off the top inch at the tbsw and planed them down to 1.5”. Th...

Building My Roubo Bench #8: Attaching the Stretchers to the Legs

02-19-2012 10:16 PM by Andy Panko | 1 comment »

I had thought that I previously finished the legs (except for mortising for the stretchers). However, after visualizing how the top would mate to the legs, I realized I needed to adjust the tenons on the two legs on the left of the bench. I’m going to be putting the left legs flush with the left edge of the top. I don’t want to be able to see the tenons from the side of the top when the project is complete. Using the table saw, I notched the tenons on the top of the legs so th...

mini roubo #1: initial thoughts

03-14-2012 02:16 PM by kaaahl | 1 comment »

Decided to make a workbench for my father for a belated Christmas and birthday gift. (Working on it in the evenings after my brain is fried from writing). The space he has available is small, so I am going to scale it down to be roughly 20” x 60” or a bit longer. Based off of a lot of different elements of a lot of benches. See my note collection here.
