SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #6: Plane Cabinet

11-25-2013 09:49 PM by grfrazee | 3 comments »

After getting tired of cleaning sawdust out of the nooks and crannies of my planes, I decided to build a little cabinet for them. It’s just a basic scrap plywood box with plywood drawers. I got a couple pairs of 100# full-extension drawer slides off Amazon for the drawers. I’m not the greatest at building carcasses (i.e., making them square), so I had to do some trial and error getting the fit right. For the drawer backs I just screwed on a couple pieces of scrap O...

Roubo Workbench Build #1: Getting Started...

10-23-2013 02:57 PM by RPhillips | 10 comments »

Hi guys, this is my first Blog as I start my journey into the realm of fine wood working. I decided earlier this year that I would like to get more involved in working with wood and creating my own furniture and such. It all started with building a Apothecary style console for my wife that I got the plans for off the internet. While building that project I soon learned that I desperately needed to upgrade my tools. Since then I have acquired a few of the must have power and hand tools but I s...

YARB #1: Yet another Roubo Bench...

10-14-2013 10:45 AM by parrothead | 4 comments »

I’ve been banging together a few projects here and there over the last couple of years and have acquired more and more hand tools. My current bench is a Sjoberg Hobbyist workbench (on sale at Woodcraft when I bought it for $100). It’s worked well, but i’m sick of it moving around when I try to do anything on it. So off to the internet I went in search of ideas for a bench. I’m a WoodWhisperer Guild member and his Roubo appealed to me…problem is…I do...

My Workbench: One Year Later #1: The Top

08-29-2013 01:20 PM by RaggedKerf | 8 comments »

I thought I’d take some time to do something that I’ve been thinking about for a while now. See, if you look at a lot of the workbenches here on Lumberjocks you’ll see some real craftsmanship and a lot of artistry. But these guys use wood like oak, maple, cherry, walnut, etc. Don’t get me wrong….if I had the choice I’d make mine out of maple and cherry and walnut in a New York second. However in my situation, using hardwoods is just too expensive. It...

Roubo Inspired Bench #3: Dog Strip, Routing, End caps, plugs

05-25-2013 05:44 PM by jusfine | 2 comments »

I did follow the WoodWhisperer’s plans for the dog holes as well as many of the other elements. I reversed the dog hole jig to make one for the dog block which was canted in the opposite direction. The only thing that accomplished was it kept the 3/8” strip on the movable dog block on the same side as the glue-up. Routing the dog holes went smoothly, lots of sawdust and shavings! Gluing the thin strip to the routed piece with a full length caul. Broug...

Roubo Inspired Bench #1: A "slight departure" from the Woodwhisperer Roubo Workbench Build

05-24-2013 02:34 AM by jusfine | 7 comments »

The desire for a new workbench was born before Marc began his Roubo build last year, but I can’t say his 2012 videos did not throw more fuel on the fire, as did some of the “Worbench of your Dreams” discussions and topics here. Personally, I need more space for storage, and it seems to be a waste to me to have an open base, so I decided to build an enclosed base, and in doing so, it caused me some design problems as I began to wander away from the WW plan. The more sites ...

SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #5: Drilling Holdfast Holes

05-12-2013 08:03 PM by grfrazee | 6 comments »

Happy Mothers’ Day everyone! Finally got a chance to go back to my parents’ house for the weekend (i.e., the location of my shop). Went into the shop and this is what my bench looked like: Looks like my dad has been at work in the 2.5 months I’ve been away. No surprises there. I made a pair of holdfasts in a blacksmithing class last fall. When I made them, I tried to round them down to about 3/4”. Since they aren’t necessarily a standard size sha...

Workbench #1: The Dunnage Workbench

02-12-2013 03:28 PM by cpd011 | 0 comments »

Hello all! Let me first just say that I should change my name to The Lurker. I don’t post much but I might be tied with some of you for the most page views. I check lumberjocks more times every day than my wife checks facebook. Though I built a workbech when we first bought our house four years ago (24 hr. workbench), lem with woodI have never been totally satisfied with it. It has served me well but I have serious workbench envy. I’m a hobbyist and make/fix things around the h...
