Work Bench Constuction Journal #1: My Dream Workbench - A Journal of Progress

01-24-2012 10:41 PM by Ron Ramsey | 21 comments »

I have finally gotten around to making a real workbench for my new, and smaller, shop (see my previous entry). I am in the planning phase right now. I’ve been pouring over plans, books, philosophy of workbench design. I guess it’s safe to say I may be over thinking this. But the design is half the fun. So, I’ve put together a journal that you can download and look at. It has pictures and explanations of some of the design considerations I’m mulling over. I am ...

Kitchen Cabinet Build #1: Boxed in... Oh No!

01-23-2012 09:55 PM by JohnMeeley | 19 comments »

This build has been in ‘progress’ far too long. It started with a reset of my kitchen layout that my Wife and I agreed upon. Much of a back-story here, but in the essence of brevity, I’ll just say this is the point I got to quickly and stopped. The Cabinets are somewhat standard construction with BB ply for the box, Hard Maple for the roll outs and Heirloom Cherry for the face frames and raised panel sides. The roll outs are on full ext. slides. The top rollers are 22”...

Basement workshop #3: Amazing what a bit of paint can do…

01-23-2012 12:31 PM by Nighthawk | 12 comments »

Amazing what a bit of paint can do… not only does it make the place look tidier, but can also brighten the place up. Though painting the bricks (and there is a bit more to do yet) did chew threw the paint but once it is on the repainting later on will be a lot easier. See nice and bright, makes the place happy… though kinda reminds me of the flat we use to live in before we bought this place … hmmm thats a bad thing. The bricks are support bricks for the upstairs coal range, which i...

Replacement Speaker Boxes #3: Sanding done

01-20-2012 10:33 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

Okay finally happy with the sanding of the actual boxes for the speakers and they are now classed as completed to return to the owner for him to do his part. Problem is they don’t look to different from my last blog… but trust me… they are… :-) As the person that I did these for will put the finish coating on, I don’t believe he has decided yet what he is going to do… I thinkk he wants to stain them… haven’t a clue. Final sanding done̷...

Building My Roubo Bench #1: Why I Decided to Build This

01-17-2012 03:13 AM by Andy Panko | 4 comments »

So after reading Christopher Schwarz’s book Workbenches: From Design and Theory to Construction and Use, I decided it was time I built myself a “real” workbench. I’ve had various bench-like structures that I’ve used as assembly tables, clamping areas, clutter storage, etc. My current “bench” is basically a large custom cabinet base with a formica top and an integrated Kreg measuring fence built on it that I use for making cuts on my miter saw....

Building the shop #8: The wall is up!!!

01-16-2012 07:40 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 5 comments »

Saturday… 0630… In the car heading to Lowe’s for the last few items needed to make the piece of my garage a real shop. Kind of like Pinocchio wanting to be a real boy – my 1/3 of the 3-car garage WANTS to be a woodshop, and I am the maker, Geppetto, who has been carefully, slowly (too slow) making that piece of the garage into a shop. Rich, my neighbor across the street, and, a “sheetrock guy” by trade, has offered to help my little piece of heaven becom...

Old wooden F-Clamp

01-15-2012 12:07 PM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

Was given an old wood clamp with a steel runner the other day was a bit worse for wear, it was being thrown out…but but but it is still functionable. Anyway today I decided to give it a bit of a tidy up, I decided instead of replacing the bits I would just sand them as I found out as well the clamp is over 100 years old. So it would be cool to keep the orginal and with its battle scars and all. Before the sanding and re-oil… All I did was give it a light sand including ...

How to make a glut

01-14-2012 09:36 AM by daltxguy | 11 comments »

This is entirely the method shown by Roy Underhill but with color pictures and timbers which he has probably never worked with. What is a glut? A glut is a wooden wedge used to split timbers green from the woods.Made from wood, to split wood! Made entirely with a handsaw and an axe. Start with about a 2’ section of log 4-5” in diameter. This is my SUV carrying it back from the woods.Here I am use Australian Blackwood. I have about 50 of these dead standing ones which ...
