Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

Prairie Style Mosaics #2: Cut, Glue, Assemble, Repeat

05-27-2018 02:49 PM by EarlS | 5 comments »

Most of the previous entry talked about the process mechanics (cutting, gluing, and clamping). This is a picture of the essential tools for this part of the project: The initial blocks start out with only a few strips of wood with spacers between them and they look pretty rough. However, as the blocks are completed and glued to other blocks, the design starts to come together. Initial strips of bocote and bubinga with walnut spacers. Stacking them together and adding the ka...

Life happenings #11: A garden from landscape ties.

05-27-2018 10:58 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Happy wife, happy life. I built this garden for my wife who is just fantastic at making the yard look nice with all the flowers she plants and tends. It matches other gardens we have in the yard and is pretty easy to do. Well, except for the pounding in of the 12” spikes, which hold it together, and also from moving. I had to till a bit of one corner to get rid of the grass for the new dimensions on one corner, other than that, the old garden that was there last year was pretty clea...

Momi-Giri #2: Yotsume-kiri (four sided) bit

05-26-2018 08:49 PM by aerialcopper | 0 comments »

Here is a simple method for making a “yotsume-kiri”, a gimlet bit for bamboo/wooden nails. For this gimlet, I wanted to use the fewest tools possible. You can see my method for making the handle here. I used annealed 1/8” square 1095 steel key stock which cost $1.08 from McMaster Carr. Any medium or high carbon steel will make a nice bit: O1, W1, A2, 4142 all seem to be available and economical in small sizes. Even mild steel (nails, spokes, etc) would probably be fine fo...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...
