Split Top Roubo Bench Build #17: Ok, I think I've recovered now

04-07-2015 12:07 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

After a long morning drinking my coffee and thinking about alternatives to keep working, I drove to the lumber yard and got a piece of baltic birch to make the flattening sled out of. When I came back I took my bent saw blade out and put a crescent wrench on the bent tooth. I moved it about three times and I think it may be useable. I soaked it in simple green to get the pitch off and I’ll try it tomorrow. I’m expecting that it’ll be a little rough but that’s ok. IR...

Shop Notes #15: Dancing because I made a JIG! Re sawing set up for my band saw

04-06-2015 02:41 AM by DocSavage45 | 22 comments »

Dancing because I made a JIG! I want to give credit to Randy/a.k.a. “Blackie,” Gary Fixler from whom Randy developed his band saw jig, and Gordon Rock who provided a YouTube video showing how to make a band saw jig. I adapted what I saw, especially from Randy’s blog, which included his outfeed tables and supports for the jig itself.Randy used furniture grade plywood to make his jig. I used material acquired over many years looking for purpose in my shop. I had fir plywo...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #16: The worst Easter ever

04-06-2015 01:46 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

So, my task today was to cut up a piece of maple I bought the other day to make the gap stop and get it glued up in the clamps and then go over to family for Easter dinner. I set up the band saw and set about resawing the board into two halves. It went fine for the first 3/4 of the board then it was binding the blade and was not tracking straight, and not wanting to cut. I made a couple of adjustments, everything else looked fine in the setup. It just wouldn’t cut and was binding hor...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #15: Pretty much done

04-01-2015 11:02 PM by ic3ss | 13 comments »

I put in an eleven hour day yesterday on this thing, the work was really kind of fun compared to the tedious work of digging out mortises of the day before. I’ve never tried the draw bore method of locking a mortise and tenon together. I didn’t even use clamps. Well this morning I just had to get the tops to fit on the tenons, so after trimming back a couple of mortise surfaces they both fit down snugly, a very sweet fit. As a bonus, the sides of the tops ended up flush wit...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #14: Final assembly of the base

04-01-2015 02:48 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I was out in the shop/garage at 8am today and didn’t finish until 7pm. I don’t recall taking a lunch break, or any break for that matter, the day just flew by. But I did get a while lot done. Yesterday was all fitting the mortises and tenons. That took all of yesterday and I left it dry fitted together. This morning I had five things to do before I could drill holes for the draw bore joints. I ran the legs across the table saw to chamfer the bottom edges, check the leg v...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #13: Cut tenons, make mortise jigs

03-30-2015 12:38 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Whew, my workweek is finally over and now I can have some fun. I’ve been thinking all week about today, particularly what I still need to get to push this project along. I needed a jig to cut the mortises, and I was looking at pattern bits and I came away with an education. Top bearing straight cut pattern bits are expensive. I didn’t want to spend that much so I went to woodcraft last week when I bought my last pieces of wood for the leg and rail, and picked up a guide bushing fr...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #12: Hardware and Final Assembly

03-29-2015 10:39 PM by Guy Dunlap | 14 comments »

It’s finally finished! In this video I perform the final assembly of the secretary. I install the tambours and handles, the backs, and the drawer hardware. Yes, I did end up going with the larger pulls. There were some very good points made about the larger and smaller pulls. However in the end, it boiled down to my beautiful wife making the final decision. A nice coat of wax and it’s complete! Thanks to everyone who watched and supported me during this build! As always, I welcome your com...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #12: Finish up the leg vise

03-25-2015 02:37 AM by ic3ss | 1 comment »

Had a surprise today, more funds available in the budget than I thought so I went to the lumber yard and got the wood that I needed. Got it all milled up and the front rail is now in the clamps. Due to my clamp shortage, I’ll have to glue up the last leg after I get home from work tomorrow night. But that’s good because it’ll set me up perfect for next weekend’s activities. I picked up a 2 – 5/8” forstner bit for the plastic bearing ring, a 4” fors...
