Tool thoughts #14: New fangled Bench

03-23-2009 06:03 AM by NedB | 4 comments »

Add me to the list of fans of the Jim White Newfangled workbench. I stopped at my local lumber yard today and picked up several 2×4x12’ boards. Then I headed up to Jim Capozzi’s shop where we dressed the boards and cut almost all of the major parts to size, I didn’t bring my 2×8 with me or I”m sure we’d have gotten ALL of the parts cut. I just looked at Ben’s bench blog, and realized I need to cut two more back bench support pieces, That’s n...

SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #7: Benchtop Divider

11-27-2013 08:16 PM by grfrazee | 4 comments »

My bench has had a gaping…er…gap in the middle of it since I built in in December 2012. Since I have Thanksgiving week off, I thought I’d remedy the situation. The divider is a simple piece made with two boards of sapwood-y black walnut with oak spacers. The bench was quite useful for gluing the thing together. The shot below shows that I staggered the spacers to accommodate different sized tools. After a little cleanup on the table saw and some fine...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #9: Overall impressions of my Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench

01-05-2014 09:52 PM by Garry | 4 comments »

I have to say I’m very pleased with the UHWB. I started work on it a few months ago and it’s been usable for the last month and a half. These last two weeks on Christmas vacation gave me time to really focus and get it finished. After way too many years of makeshift garage workshops in rented houses, it feels great to have an organized workspace that I know I can take with me almost anywhere. I built a small bookcase for my wife’s craft room and it went very smoothly. Her...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #5: Joint, plane and repeat....

07-16-2011 07:54 AM by RS Woodworks | 4 comments »

Well, with the boards for the top cut to rough length and rough thickness, and the general layout for the top decided on, it’s time to start squaring up the lumber and getting ready to glue the top all together. I started out with jointing one face and one edge flat and square on the 6” general jointer. I set up a roller stand to the exact height on both the infeed and outfeed side. It’s time consuming, but squaring all the lumber is probably the single most important step i...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #14: Bench. Is. Done.

05-10-2011 09:26 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

Did the final glueup today. The bench is now completely assembled! My birthday is Monday, so by then I want to have the top flattened. A few other things I still need to do: make the crochet make the leg vise finish it (BLO) install a shelf and maybe a drawer make the Moxon double-screw vise But once I have the top flattened, I’ll consider the bench to be done, really. Picture to come at that time!

The Holtzapffel Project #3: A shop tour

05-19-2008 02:24 AM by kem | 4 comments »

It’s been over 7 weeks since my last entry, but it took about that long for the wood to dry out enough. For the first 3 weeks, the wood was drying very slowly probably because it was still cold out here in Denver. In the mean time, I spent some time adding dust collection to the shop and also built this sweet sawbench/sawhorse from Chris Schwarz's design. This gave me some good practice milling up the lumber and also with some finishing. I used the natural Watco Danish oil on ...

Workbench #6: Dry fit time

09-10-2009 02:00 PM by KellyS | 4 comments »

So, I took Friday off to work on my bench some and to get away from work. I ended up having a great day and being actually productive too. I got up early just like I was going to work, early in the morning I laid all my mortises and tenons out while everyone was sleeping trying to make the most of the day. I was plenty apprehensive about cutting these mortises because this was all the scrap poplar I had left and all the other mortises I cut in the past had been abominations. I set everything ...

The Holtzapffel Project #4: My first laminations

05-19-2008 04:46 AM by kem | 4 comments »

I decided to start out with the legs, so I could get more practice milling the lumber and in gluing the pieces up before tackling the top. The idea with the legs is to sandwich a longer board in between two shorter boards to make a ready-made tenon. Here are all of the pieces for the four legs milled up. You can see some dark streaks in these pieces. Those are where I ran into sap pockets in the wood. I don’t know if that’s bad or not, but it is annoying. I th...

My Take on a Woodworking Bench #1: Sorting through the pile

12-28-2012 11:32 PM by Class1E | 4 comments »

I started work on my bench today. I’ve had the Douglas Fir purchased from Home Depot waiting for this in my basement since July, so it should be well acclimated. Of course i would love to have a hard maple bench, but I want to learn on something a little more…economical.The boards in the photos are 2×8x6’, cut at the store from 2×8x12’ boards. That was necessary in order to fit them in my car. Six feet is about the max with the pass-through ot the trunk o...

I finally shimmed the brackets on the correct side and added matching shims on the opposite side of the front vice bearing and vola. turns smooth as butter. The front vice jaw is planed and sanded and has bench dog holes drilled in it. The TSV is Done. All it needs is a coat of oil, boiled linsead oil.and it is DONE> You can see the bench dog holes drilled in the apron, it is ready to be glued on to the bench. Then it is time to move the top off the legs, fix the wedged tenons, fli...
