Mongo: my first real workbench #3: A look at joinery

03-30-2017 04:41 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 0 comments »

As I mentioned before I’m planning to assemble Mongo without fasteners. I’m not exactly schooled in the fine art of joinery but I do watch a fair number of YouTube videos and I’ve been following Chris Hall's excellent work for some time. I appreciate his unique blend of traditional joinery design and modern manufacturing methods. With the top completely laminated and glued to the tool tray, my first bit of joinery will be the ribs that support the top from underneath. The...

Mongo: my first real workbench #1: Planning and Laminating

03-22-2017 07:35 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

All my work surfaces are specific to a tool… outfeed table on a table saw, infeed and outfeed tables on a router table, long benches on either side of a radial arm saw and power miter saw station, etc. I’ve been without a general work surface ever since I started working wood in my own shop. A such, my projects tend to move from whatever tool I’m not using to whatever tool I just used and none are really suitable for any handwork which is where my focus has started to tur...

Workbench #9: Time for a break

03-07-2017 02:27 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 0 comments »

Over the weekend I worked on the bench a bit. I marked many areas of the base to drill holes: to drawbore tenons, planned out the leg vise, etc. Saturday afternoon I felt like I was a little stuck. I really need to drill some holes to get things together and continue with the base. I don’t have a drill press so would have to drive over to my parents’ house to use my great-grandfathers press. My wife told me to just go on Saturday; I should have listened to her but didn’t....

Workbench #8: Base Progress

03-05-2017 01:16 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 3 comments »

It’s been a month since I last shared an update here. I’ve been making lots of progress on the base, making legs and stretchers and fitting it all together. The tail vise has gotten a lot of use since I completed it! I’m really glad I put it in the top. Here I used the vise with a hand screw to hold the leg so I could cut the tenons. With the tenons in the rails cut and mortises chopped into the legs, I was able to see some real progress! I didn’t...

3 Year Old Helps Dismantle Workbench

03-01-2017 11:43 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

My youngest son loves joining me in the shop. He has his own handplane (dulled blade) and a wooden saw. In my shop renovation I am taking my workbench completely apart and re-utilizing it for shelving or drill press table. My son was finally able to really help with dismantling the bench. Check it out and subscribe to my channel. Also check out the second video where I forge out some holdfasts.

Lumber storage workbench

02-13-2017 06:14 AM by Kuffy | 1 comment »

It was as if a bolt of lightning struck me in the head and gave me a great idea. Clean up my messy pile of timber which has spread itself across my shop floor and build a workbench which can store the timber beneath it. Bloody brilliant! It is coming in extremely handy while I am building my next hall table project. View on YouTube Below is a picture of my workshop while I was building the workbench. Quite the mess!

Workbench #7: Installing the Tail Vise

02-02-2017 02:20 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 1 comment »

I’ve wished for a tail vise almost since I first started working with hand planes. I have tried holding pieces in various ways but always thought a tail vise would be the best solution. Benchcrafted’s wagon vise looks like a great solution and I only see good things about it. But boy, is it expensive, and I’m not sure I want to spend that much money, especially when the wood for my bench is also so inexpensive. So, I bought a Lee Valley tail vise screw ($40) and I’m re...

Building my Workbench #7: Brief update and vise opinion solicitations

01-23-2017 02:05 PM by HokieKen | 0 comments »

Geeze, I’m really on the ball with this blog huh? Well, unfortunately the pace of my blog updates pretty well matches the pace of my bench build :-( A LOT of family (and just general life) crisis the past couple months have severely limited my shop time. And, I comitted to the toolswap going on so I’ve had to keep up with that too. Soooo, the bench has kinda taken a bit of a back seat. While my shop time is still limited, it is solely focused on my bench now, so I’ve ...
