Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

Outside corner on each leg also got a bead detail…Laid out for the mortise..Gather up the tools to chop the hole.. test fit the tenon.. Until all parts could be dry fitted together. Top got “rounded” And set aside….after a glue up.. Found the flattest spot in the shop’s floor, and go...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #6: Headboard work, test fits

05-24-2018 09:00 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took the footboard upstairs to the bedroom, to see IF it fits….the way things were going, I wanted to make sure.. Looks like it will fit…went back to the shop, and took the headboard apart….rails needed a bead.. They needed sanded and I even ran a roundover bit down the edges… Tenons on the ends,needed fine tuned.. Mainly the endgrain…was a bit out of square…chin powered the chisel, not a hammer.. Rails were done, sanded to 180 grit, and set...

2 Car Garage Wood Shop Tour

05-21-2018 10:26 PM by wrenchhead | 7 comments »

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdgtdxMRqok

Gift Projects #2: Making Cutting Boards Out Of a Single Peice of Solid Wood

05-17-2018 06:05 PM by ScottBelleri | 0 comments »

I made these paddle-style cutting boards out of solid 6/4” maple. This is thick enough that they shouldn’t warp, and they can be sanded down a number of times. It is called a paddle-style cutting board because its handle makes it look a bit like a paddle. The handle makes it easy to carry and hang, and also gives it a unique character. Sugar maple is an ideal wood for cutting boards because it is hard, but not so hard that it will dull your knives. Really, the only import...

Big cabinet for the new home #3: Design change, big dado setup, rabbets and an oops.

05-13-2018 01:55 AM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Design change. More difficult but I think this one looks much better. Primarily changed up the door design to go inset with an upper and lower cabinet and with more glass panes. Went from 6 to 12 doors. We still haven’t decided on the detail for drawer fronts. Crown molding will be more ornate. Compare to the original. I was really concerned about getting the interior dados lined up for the sides and back. I knew it wouldn’t go together well if they weren...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

Bath Stool #8: Rounding and learning

05-07-2018 04:35 PM by Diego Cassels | 4 comments »

Tusk through tenon!! The name is common but its the first for me. I scratch a line to have a reference to drill, then squared it with a chisel. The key was made with the same wood, “quebracho colorado”. Hard to fit but the en result looked good to me! Then I ronded the seat corners with a router and lots of sanding. LOTS!!! I had to do a dry test, the photos don`t do it justice! Here you have a closeup of the tusked tenon. Well a touch there and another over t...

Shop Notes #20: Odd Custom Projects

05-03-2018 03:25 PM by Steve | 2 comments »

I generally see a trickle of custom requests in my shop, so it’s unusual to have two under way at the same time. The first was a soap cutting device for a friend who makes and sells boutique soap. Essentially, it’s cutting wires strung over a frame, then hinged so the entire device can be pulled down through a large cake of soap. Most of the comparables I saw on Etsy were bolted together plywood contraptions. I used some scrap maple for the frame with lap joints and dowels at t...
