not so Koshuo Bench #4: attaching the Beams

780 days ago by AKSteve | 0 comments »

Well this will not turn out as I expected but it is becoming something very interesting to say the least. I am still happy with the Decisions I made about the joinery and the Carving of the legs. Although it is a pretty rough, there are some messy spots on this mortise and tenon joints for the beams. I have just done the one side so far so I have no idea if it is going to even look level or even sit level I am doing my Best on trying to make sure it’s level, when I put the legs together...

Workbench #4: Stretchers

814 days ago by twobyfour16 | 3 comments »

Back at it. Since the plans for the workbench called for stretchers that are 1 3/4” thick by 4” wide, I had to get back to laminating. The rest of the bench so far has all been built with Lenga (Chilean Cherry, some call it), but I recently acquired a bunch of nominal 1×8 black mahogany that had been edge glued for width. I got it cheap (very cheap) because it was edge glued with no attention given to matching the color. The material is 3/4” thick, and I d...

Workbench #3: Workbench - Trestle base beginning

828 days ago by twobyfour16 | 5 comments »

Back at it….FINALLY!!!Considering my last entry on this project was almost 2 years ago, I thought I had better get going. I resumed work on my workbench recently. I had most of the trestle components laminated up (legs & feet anyway), so I started working on the mortises & tennons. I started with the feet, which required 2 big mortises (1 1/2” x 2 1/4”) 2 1/2” long. I drilled most of the material out with a 1/4” drill bit followed by a 3/4” fors...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #1: She's got legs.....

849 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 7 comments »

I’ll skip the boring parts, like the glue up of the legs and material choice. I will say that I had intended to build my own designed bench sometime last year. I was sold on a certain author’s idea of an awesome Roubo style bench. I got Paul Sellers’ Working Wood, book and dvd set at Christmas this year, and it completely changed my way of thinking. But you didn’t come here for ramblings, you want to see pictures…... There they are, pretty aren&#...

Building My Roubo Bench #8: Attaching the Stretchers to the Legs

884 days ago by Andy Panko | 1 comment »

I had thought that I previously finished the legs (except for mortising for the stretchers). However, after visualizing how the top would mate to the legs, I realized I needed to adjust the tenons on the two legs on the left of the bench. I’m going to be putting the left legs flush with the left edge of the top. I don’t want to be able to see the tenons from the side of the top when the project is complete. Using the table saw, I notched the tenons on the top of the legs so th...

Building My Roubo Bench #7: Making the Stretchers

891 days ago by Andy Panko | 6 comments »

I wanted to make the bench’s stretchers as proportionately beefy as the top and legs. Since my legs are 5” square, I figured it would work well, and look good, to make the stretchers about 3 1/2” high, and about 2 1/2” thick. So I had to AGAIN joint, plane, glue, clamp and wait some more. I’ve been getting kind of bored of doing glue-ups, so I’m glad this was the last laminating I’ll have to do on this project. I want to integrate 3/4” thick...

Building My Roubo Bench #6: Starting the Legs

892 days ago by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

Now that the top is done, it’s time to start the legs and stretchers. I wanted real thick and sturdy legs, so I’m going for 5” square. Prior to starting this project, I had never done any real lamination work. I’ve glued boards together before, end-to-end, to make wider planks. But that material was only 1/2” thick. I never did anything this big before, but this whole lamination thing seemed pretty easy in concept. Sure enough, it wasn’t too bad. Now...

Workbench #13: Leg Assemblies Complete

903 days ago by HungryTermite | 7 comments »

Now that I know what the actual width of the top will be (23 1/2 inches by the way) I was able to cut the short stretchers that connect the front and back legs: I decided to try to drawbore the legs with 3/8” pegs since the short stretchers will be attached permanently. I had already drilled the holes in the legs so all that was left to do was to mark the location on the tenon so the holes could be drilled. I couldn’t get the stretcher all the way into the mortise for som...

Cleaning a tenon up

904 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 10 comments »

Well after going almost 2 months without doing a video and almost 2 weeks not being in the shop, I figured I would get some work done and while in the process shoot a short video. Well sadly my shop light burnt out and I have no bulbs for it, but I did get the video filmed before the light went out. Enjoy it and as always, all comments (good, bad, or terrible), tips, and tricks are welcome. Thanks!
