Split Top Roubo Bench Build #18: Top flattening, parts 1 and 2

04-13-2015 03:49 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I didn’t write the final post last week as I was pretty busy with my 20th wedding anniversary. Last weekend I had planned on flattening the tops on my last day off but only got half of it done. I had decided to use the router to flatten it, using a sled and rails. I saw the technique on the Wood Whisperer video and thought it was a good idea. So I went to the big box and got two 2×6 kiln dried 8’ long boards for the rails. The first thing it to make the edges straight and ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #17: Ok, I think I've recovered now

04-07-2015 12:07 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

After a long morning drinking my coffee and thinking about alternatives to keep working, I drove to the lumber yard and got a piece of baltic birch to make the flattening sled out of. When I came back I took my bent saw blade out and put a crescent wrench on the bent tooth. I moved it about three times and I think it may be useable. I soaked it in simple green to get the pitch off and I’ll try it tomorrow. I’m expecting that it’ll be a little rough but that’s ok. IR...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #16: The worst Easter ever

04-06-2015 01:46 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

So, my task today was to cut up a piece of maple I bought the other day to make the gap stop and get it glued up in the clamps and then go over to family for Easter dinner. I set up the band saw and set about resawing the board into two halves. It went fine for the first 3/4 of the board then it was binding the blade and was not tracking straight, and not wanting to cut. I made a couple of adjustments, everything else looked fine in the setup. It just wouldn’t cut and was binding hor...

Basement to a REAL Basement Shop #2: Dust Collection

04-03-2015 04:44 PM by JAY Made | 2 comments »

Wow! It has been a very busy couple of weeks. Last year I purchased the 2hp Harborfreight dust collector. I knew I was not going to use it in it’s stock configuration, I knew I wanted to set it up like Jay Bates did. So when I first got the DC I crammed it in a spot out of the way, to the right of the DC was the chimney, to the left was a bunch of Junk. I moved it to the NW corner of the basement. The blower is mounted on top of the factory ring and is exsausted to t...

Craftsman Tablesaw tune-up #2: New Fence is installed and aligned

04-03-2015 05:14 AM by B4B | 0 comments »

Sorry, no pictures today. I’ll get some when the saw is in a better location for pics, maybe once I get the stand built up. I was able to get the Shop Fox W1410 fence installed, and what a difference it makes over the stock fence. It took me about three hours over three days after getting home from work. . or maybe 4 hours, I lost track of time. I don’t recommend this order of operations. If I had followed the instructionsa little more closely, I would not have 2 extra holes...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #15: Pretty much done

04-01-2015 11:02 PM by ic3ss | 13 comments »

I put in an eleven hour day yesterday on this thing, the work was really kind of fun compared to the tedious work of digging out mortises of the day before. I’ve never tried the draw bore method of locking a mortise and tenon together. I didn’t even use clamps. Well this morning I just had to get the tops to fit on the tenons, so after trimming back a couple of mortise surfaces they both fit down snugly, a very sweet fit. As a bonus, the sides of the tops ended up flush wit...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #14: Final assembly of the base

04-01-2015 02:48 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I was out in the shop/garage at 8am today and didn’t finish until 7pm. I don’t recall taking a lunch break, or any break for that matter, the day just flew by. But I did get a while lot done. Yesterday was all fitting the mortises and tenons. That took all of yesterday and I left it dry fitted together. This morning I had five things to do before I could drill holes for the draw bore joints. I ran the legs across the table saw to chamfer the bottom edges, check the leg v...

Banquette build....my first furniture attempt #2: Almost done (Bad first time blogging)

03-30-2015 04:16 AM by Woodchuck4 | 5 comments »

So, I feel like my first blog attempt was a failure to anyone that read the first one and was interesting in seeing it progress. The first of this series was like show starting and then being cancelled after episode one ha. Enough of my rambling. After two years, a new job, two little additions to the family, and a few other projects crammed in front of this one I am almost done. Being 100% honest some of the delay was from intimidation and frustration as well. I took a REALLY big bite...
