Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #8: Beginning Cuts on Saw Bench/Saw Horses

03-06-2015 01:18 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Cheap tools (except for the Starrett combination square – left over from my metal fabrication days) are getting the job done for now. My saw cuts are getting better. Fairly square – they need to be since I haven’t dug out my jack plane and my block plane needs sharpening, and I don’t have a solid place to hold anything down yet. I’m using my Swiss Army knife to mark my cut-lines and putting a shallow kerf line on three (or sometimes four) sides befo...

Workbench #3: Workbench - Trestle base beginning

04-15-2012 06:22 PM by twobyfour16 | 6 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...

Anyway, pretty much following Marc’s process and here’s where we are as of today; Templates made; All the milling and initial blank making was done last weekend so here’s...

Trestle Table Desks #1: Milling the leg parts and mortising

11-11-2010 12:40 AM by Lee Barker | 2 comments »

General outline: Two identical desks, 30×72, 6/4 cherry with a juniper accent somewhere. Progress shown here: The milled parts for the leg units. The verticals will be mortised into the feet and the opposite piece to the feet—what is that, the head? The shoulder? I think I like “shoulder” better. The juniper panels will be inset between the two verticals (femurs?). I’ve not yet decided how tall the panel will be, but the width is 5”. The feet ar...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #4: Change of Plans?

08-09-2009 07:59 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

Thanks in large part to WhatTheChuck, I’m giving serious thought to changing the design of the underbody of the table. With all due respect to Schroeder's table, which I prefer the looks of in many ways, I think the lack of a footrest underneath is a good thing, and the spindles underneath are magnificent, yet kind of a waste of time, energy, effort, and lumber as they’ll be hidden by chairs. I think the trestle-style design might be more pragmatic, and still embody the simplici...
