Treadle Lathe #5: Upright mortises and dry fitting the first through tenon

11-02-2018 01:24 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Today I began hogging out the four mortises on the 1st and 3rd uprights. Each mortise will house a through tenon attaching the two ways to the uprights (legs). The second upright attaches to the ways with a series of housings in which I discussed on the last post. Sticking with the hand-tool only approach., I drilled out each mortise with my brace and 1 inch auger bit from each side of the uprights then finished it off with a chisel. I’m really happy with the fit. Thanks for following m...

Amazing Workbench Build |Hand tool Woodworking

10-18-2018 04:41 PM by LastingBuild | 1 comment »

A few months ago, I posted pictures of my Paul Sellers Workbench and received a really big response. I linked it to my build series on youtube. The series is too long for most people to watch so I condensed it into 5 minutes (over 15 hours of video footage). I hope my video inspires others to build one of their own. This experience has changed my practice of woodworking forever.

Treadle Lathe #3: Cutting Joinery

10-11-2018 12:52 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Making progress on the lathe. In the last post, I laid out the ways (the horizontal boards that the head stock, tail stock and tool rest sit on) and in this episode I cut four tenons and two housing dados! This project is definitely taking longer than expected but I’m happy with the current progress and I’m confident it will be worth the effort. Working with oak has been a learning curve in comparison to pine. View on YouTube I can’t wait to be turning wood with a f...

Moravian Workbench Build #2: Bench Top

05-23-2018 03:53 PM by ElroyD | 3 comments »

Those who read the first entry in my Moravian Workbench Build may recall that I had been working in our laundry room till the weather warmed up enough outside. Unfortunately, it didn’t. Winter had a hard time letting go of the northeast this year, and I was eventually forced out of my small laundry room workspace. I didn’t want to stop work on the bench though, so I retreated to our very dark, very dusty, very musty, very in need of repair basement where I began work on my be...

Collapsible Workbench with Free Plans

04-28-2018 12:35 PM by SirFatty | 4 comments »

I’ve run out of space in my garage workshop, to the point where I had to get rid of my workbench. To compensate, I created a collapsible workbench that uses my two Workmates as the supporting structure. To be sure, this is not a proper work surface, it’s too low and certainly not strong enough to heavy work. But for light assembly and cutting sheet goods, this will fit the bill. Also, when taken apart it stacks nicely on the foundation ledge out of the way. ...

Moravian Workbench Build #1: Getting Started

03-15-2018 05:06 PM by ElroyD | 5 comments »

A couple of years ago I started to get more into studying 18th and 19th century hand tool woodworking. At the time, I didn’t have a shop, and didn’t have anyplace to put one. During the summer I put cleaned out a section of our goat barn, put up a couple of sawhorses with a solid-core door on top to use as a workbench, and began to play. Then daughter #5 came along. Needless to say, babies take up a lot of time, so things were put on hold. Now that she’s a little mo...

Workshop redo #1: I Have a Terrible Habit

03-14-2018 11:38 PM by DJL1031 | 0 comments »

I am away from my home today. Away from the sawdust, smell of fresh cut cherry and paper thin ribbons of excess wood on my shop floor. I will not be dusting off my pants and shirt at 130 or 200AM. I will make no progress on the several projects that I have going on, both in and out of the shop. The time away has given me a chance to reflect on this short week and plan for my homecoming. That is when I plan on finishing my workbench replacement….. for about the third time in as many quar...

Shop Upgrades #1: MFT 3 Powertool Workbench

02-05-2018 04:57 PM by MatthewTruax | 3 comments »

Hi all! I’ve been designing this workbench in my head for quite some time. Over this past weekend, I was able to finish milling the frame/structure of the workbench and complete the glue up. I used the Domino XL 700 and installed twin tenons (loose tenons) in all joints of the frame. I know some of you will be astonished that I’m using this walnut for a workbench, but if you look at my completed projects, you will see that this will match my Roubo workbench and lets be hones...
