All right, it’s been a long time since I posted anything.

Years ago we regilded 12 side chairs and 2 armchairs for a client in La Jolla We are making a dining room table to go with them, but I will post about this later when we are further ahead. At the moment the legs are being carverd out of solid walnu...

Roubo-ish work bench #4: Leg Vise, Finishing Touches

05-14-2017 05:17 PM by galooticus | 5 comments »

The last major part of the bench was making the leg vise. I’ve been looking forward to this. I had a 4×8 I set aside for this purpose. When trying to decide on the thickness, I couldn’t find a consensus on the internet. One thing I did notice (and didn’t follow :)) is that hardwood seems to be universally used for vise chops, even if the rest of the bench of the bench is softwood. Well, I had this 4×8 ready to go, and it’s not really expensive, so I figu...

Roubo-ish work bench #3: Stretchers

05-14-2017 04:18 PM by galooticus | 2 comments »

Ah, stretchers. These were made from douglas 4×4s—the B-stock pieces that didn’t make the cut when laminating the top. Compared to the leg-top tenons, this stage was a breeze. As I mentioned in the last blog post, I ditched my old bench and am working entirely on the new bench from this point on. First things first, I put in a single dog hole so I could make use of a hold fast. This is the first time using anything other than irwin quick clamps for workholding. So muc...

Roubo-ish work bench #2: Legs

05-14-2017 03:38 PM by galooticus | 2 comments »

OK, I left off last time with laminated top, but no legs for it to stand on. The legs are from 4×8 stock; the same old douglas fir: My intention from the beginning was to do the roubo-style double tenons, with the front tenon being some sort of dovetail like thing. I decided to go tenons (tails?) first, then mark the mortises in the top using each individual tenon. To find the tenon length, I measured the thickness of the top and added around 1/8” for fudge room. I agoni...

Building my Workbench #8: Chisels be Cryin'

04-03-2017 11:49 AM by HokieKen | 29 comments »

OMG, I am horrible with this blog huh? Swaps been over for awhile now slacker…..I need an update. - ki7hy Fair enough ;-P I really hadn’t made any progress since the last update other than getting the end vise installed and drilling my dog/holdfast holes until last week. I did have a couple of days last week that I got good time and I got my legs all milled and got the tenons cut. So now I’m marking out and cutting my mortises. At the rate I’m going, I’...

3-in-1 baby bed #4: Building the railing - and a new jig

12-04-2016 06:15 PM by JSOvens | 2 comments »

I felt like it was time to actually build something for this project. I started with a component which I felt was relatively inconsequential. As woodworkers, we should strive to put due care and skill into every component of a build I know, but it can be prudent to try out new techniques and methods on a component which, when talking in practical terms, just isn’t as important as the rest. In this case, that component is the small rail on the toddler bed circled in the diagram below. ...

Building a Cherry Queen Bed #4: Side Rails, Center Rail, and Slats

07-05-2016 05:21 PM by jonah | 4 comments »

After getting the headboard finished, I started on the side rails. I’d been thinking throughout the process about a way to get the mortises for the hardware into the end of the side rails, and I hadn’t come up with anything. I was trying to avoid routing sideways, which seemed absurdly dangerous, difficult, and generally a Bad Idea with my heavy router. If I had one of those lighter compact plunge routers I might have considered it, but my Ridgid router weighs a heck of a lot and ...
