Split Top Roubo Bench Build #19: Done!

04-14-2015 02:15 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

My morning was taken up entirely by straightening out a snafu with my medical insurance co. and the doctor’s office. What a pain. Sometimes I wonder why I have health insurance. Anyway. . . When I did make it out to the shop, I had this cutoff piece of walnut left over from the leg vise chop that was perfect for the deadman. I’m not really done with it at this point, all I did was rip it and cut to length, cut a rabbet at the top and the V groove at the bottom. It fits right...

Poplar shoe rack #3: Cutting the joinery

03-19-2014 08:09 PM by JSOvens | 6 comments »

Welcome back everyone! It is now time to begin the exciting part of the project. In the first post of this series, I showed my plan for this project, which contains a total of 82 half-lap joints. I don’t have a dado stack at this time (and I am not so sure I would want to put one on my current saw), and my router table is too small to realistically cut the half-laps on the larger pieces. So what I have decided to do is to ‘gang’ several like pieces together and cut the half-...

Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... #3: Rails and Stiles.

08-19-2010 01:27 AM by degoose | 12 comments »

Having dressed all the timber to size… the next job is to make the frame..I use Cope and Stick construction.. also known as Frame and PanelFirst using a Mitre Express and Mitre 2000 gauge with stop attached… all the rails [horizontal parts] were cut to size …. this method ensures accuracy… the Stiles [ or the vertical parts of the frame…] are left over long… this means that a little extra protrudes past the rails… these are called ‘horns’ ...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly

02-06-2015 05:57 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...

Norms Router Cabinet #5: Drawers and Trays are done

10-05-2008 04:24 AM by sIKE | 6 comments »

Got out today and get the trays for the left hand side of the cabinet redone, I found a real cool piece of the ply for the drawer/tray fronts. I also got the three drawers for the bottom of the cabinet done. Tomorrow, I am gonna get out there and get the handles on the trays and get the drawers and drawer slides mounted. That should just about finish the cabinet base done, and I can start on the design and layout of the top. Much there I need to figure out.

Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...

Cheap Kitchen Table #3: Improved leg design

10-01-2011 11:26 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

You spoke and I listened. We made corner blocks for the legs so that they should be plenty strong enough. Here’s a picture with the corner blocks installed into the bottom and top horizontals. These were the most difficult and dangerous thing we’ve ever made in the workshop. They took dangerous cuts on the miter saw and table saw. We will never do them again and will make a jig next time to be safer. Here’s what the side verticals looks like next to the horizon...
