Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #3: A look under her skirt....

881 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 11 comments »

I got your attention with that title, so here’s the picture….. I began to cut the hole for the vise two nights ago, last night I actually got it mounted. I had to use 3 layers of plywood to get the clearance I needed to mount it. (I’ll try and get a picture of that when I’m under the bench again. I’m not picking it up again if I can help it.) I had my 10 year old nephew help me mount it and here are the results… I have one coat of BLO ...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #4: Into the beyond...

866 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 11 comments »

I’ve been “done” with this project for nearly two weeks at this point, but I feel I should close this out. Along with the bench, I felt the need to showcase some of my favorite tools. I plan to update this blog with some of the uses for the gap that I can come up with…

The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #10: The workbench

1460 days ago by captkerk | 10 comments »

Well, I finally completed the workbench. This was based on the Torsion Box Workbench from Shop Notes magazine July 2010. The construction for this was going along nicely until I inadvertently drilled the wrong size dog holes in the edging! Luckily I was able to rip the edges off using the table saw and make new ones. The top was sized to fit the mobile shop cart underneath for storage. Although it seems I won’t be storing it away very often, it is nice to have the op...

Workbench #15: Base Mortise & Tenons

1035 days ago by CartersWhittling | 0 comments »

Hello. I have now finished the mortise and tenons for the base and have them all fit. Here are the two base assemblies put together. The assembly closest to view still needs a thin leg installed on its right side. You can see the tenons on top of each assembly which will be going into mortises in the bench top. Here is a view of the leg assemblies from the Roubo side of the bench, with the front legs that will be flush to the bench top side and the tenons that will be mortised into the ...

Hand Tool Journey #4: Building a Work Bench

1781 days ago by Blake | 18 comments »

I did a trade for some woodwork with a guy who had a garage full of lumber and several nice hand tools. Most of the lumber was Oak. I don’t really like working with Oak. But I thought it would be perfect for a bench, and there was enough of it. I got lots of different lengths and widths. Most of it was 3/4”. I forgot to take a “before” photo of the stack but here is a sample: Now I intend to make a nice, sturdy bench, but its going to be more functional than ...

Workbench restore (Scandinavian style) #4: Fixing the front vice...

657 days ago by mafe | 15 comments »

Scandinavian workbench restoreFixing the front vice. This part is the repair of the front vice and yes making it run smooth as a dream.(Some call the front vice a face vice). We are back at the bench, now with hold fast and more or less ready to use.But my front vice is missing it’s pressure plate. The really old benches did not have one of these but mine has the slide for it so it will be replaced. Here again you can see the underneath how it is really just a clamp attached to the t...

Musings from an average woodworker

474 days ago by sgmdwk50 | 9 comments »

I see many beautiful pieces of work on LJ. The creators are true artists … I am not. I love working with wood. I love the process, watching the raw material turn into something solid and useful. But my skills are not exceptional. Neither are my tools and the materials I work with. I am the average guy. I try to learn new things on every project. I try to avoid repeating my mistakes. I try to have fun. I just finished my first “real” workbench. For more than 20 years I hav...

Workbenches...finally #2: The other bench

1002 days ago by Shopsmithtom | 7 comments »

Shortly after I found a Sjobergs bench at an auction, I came across an elderly woodworker in my neighborhood that was giving up his shop for health reasons. I heard he had a Shopsmith for sale, and being who I am, I couldn’t resist a visit to see if I might add yet another one to my shop. Alas, it wasn’t to be. He wanted too much for it. ( I like to find them cheap) He did, however, have a workbench he had built some 50 years ago that he was selling for $75. While the lower par...

SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #2: Finished Leg Vise

578 days ago by grfrazee | 8 comments »

I finally got some shop time this weekend and had a chance to complete my leg vise. After my last building session, I had left it basically functional, but lacking a couple bells and whistles to make it really nice. The first addition was a guide wheel on the underside of the parallel guide. I bought another plastic wheel from Woodcraft and mounted it below the guide. It looks like it could become an ankle biter, but I haven’t run into any problems yet. It’s only pock...

Workbench restore (Scandinavian style) #6: One legged dead man walking…

652 days ago by mafe | 9 comments »

Scandinavian workbench restoreOne legged dead man walking… Ok some awful undertones in that name…Actually it is just a simple dead man for the new old workbench. Just a long piece of wood, not sure but think teak. Marking the center line. Drilling holes for every two inch or five cm. And a little dowel that fits the holes with a cross dowel that makes it easy to pull out. Use the end vice to hold it. Get the idea? Now it is just to use it.I udsed it for pla...
