Workbench Project #1: The workbench project begins!

10-22-2007 08:27 PM by Jon3 | 4 comments »

NOTE All of my photos have been migrated to a new provider, and the links in my posts are likely out of date. You can find the photos here. I actually began this project around 6-9 months ago, when I got into woodworking, and I did some of the original work then. It is surprising how far I’ve come in what I know to do, and not do, since then. I had a leftover benchtop that I picked up basically free from family friends. It was not pretty! It had a fairly thick finish on ...

Workbench Project #4: Jointed top complete!

10-25-2007 09:40 PM by Jon3 | 1 comment »

I took another (room full of dust) pass with the jointing sled setup. You can see the low parts at the edges. I think by now I’ve taken more than 1/16 off the top. You can see how it bows down in the corners. And where poor control of the router and sled combo when stopping the router caused it to bounce and i got a small divot. Thankfully, it is very shallow and the next pass should clean it up. One more pass and she should be plane!

Important New Tool Added to the Shop for Summer

07-20-2007 07:58 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 17 comments »

Just a quick note to show a photo of an important new addition to the shop. Last Fall a neighbor said that they had a large window air conditioner that I could have if I wanted it. I waited all Fall, Winter, Spring, and half of the Summer, but did get the big unit installed this week. We have had a very mild Summer here in Kansas, with lots of rain, cloudy days, and cooler weather than normal. So, why rush into installing the window a/c unit? Then, I saw the forecast for this wee...

Workbench Project #5: Short but sweet entry

10-25-2007 11:10 PM by Jon3 | 7 comments »

Finally got the final pass done on the bench. You can see the zig-zag lines all over from the router’s bit. I got a nice flat bottom bit, but you’re going to be going against the grain at SOME point, so you’ll still get a little bit of fuzz to deal with. I got out the 120 grit discs and the sander, and went to work. Switched over to 180 and then 220, and got it nice and shiny. That was enough work for one day!

Widdershins Joinery Blog #1: I Believe Introductions Are In Order! :D

09-09-2014 02:48 PM by WiddershinsJoinery | 2 comments »

My name is Robin Gosse, living in a (very) small town on the northern tip of the island-portion of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. We are WAY out in the Atlantic ocean, farther East than New England region of the USA, well above 50 degrees of latitude. My wife and I recently bought a house with a huge garage, and I’ve begun the adventure of renovating it into a proper woodworking studio. Please visit my blog page and join in my adventure of home ownership, woodwor...

Widdershins Joinery Blog #2: About My Blog

09-09-2014 10:53 PM by WiddershinsJoinery | 0 comments »

This blog is all about my work in my shop, detailing the trials and tribulations I experience there. I had been a woodworker, in the most peripheral sense, most of my life. Typical outport kind, I guess, building things with Dad out in the garage. I’ve built a significant portion of sheds, cottages, decks, installed windows, doors, siding, poured concrete, worked on asphalt, etc, etc, ad nausium. It’s all good though, Woodworking (as just one of my many hobbies) quiets a part of my soul that ...

ever want to say – to hell with the high fahlutin joinery – and just screw the dang project together? i’m close people – real close – to doing just that. well, not really. just maybe a little. maybe. a bit. they’ll be unseen. i mean, they’re screws, there is a serious skill level involved. right? getting them straight, allowing for wood movement, choosing the right ones, placement, yadda yadda yadda. what if i put them in by hand? would...

Yet another workbench #2: Wooden Parts 1

08-28-2015 05:35 PM by JonasB | 1 comment »

Leg Assembly Two leg assemblies are part of the support system for the bench. I was going to use glued up 2×4s, but found some 12/4 poplar, so sawed that to shape instead. The legs are 2.75” thick and 4” wide, and the top rail is 2.75” square. The legs are angled at about 15 degrees. The 2×4 approach would have simplified cutting the angled slots, but then you have the hassle of cleaning up the glued up legs. The large hunks of wood making up the legs give them a nice soli...
