Split Top Roubo Bench Build #19: Done!

04-14-2015 02:15 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

My morning was taken up entirely by straightening out a snafu with my medical insurance co. and the doctor’s office. What a pain. Sometimes I wonder why I have health insurance. Anyway. . . When I did make it out to the shop, I had this cutoff piece of walnut left over from the leg vise chop that was perfect for the deadman. I’m not really done with it at this point, all I did was rip it and cut to length, cut a rabbet at the top and the V groove at the bottom. It fits right...

Bench build #1: Yet another LJ build, New-fangled workbench

02-21-2009 04:01 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

I decided after looking around that I needed a new workbench. Mine was old and inadequate, dating back to 1976. A lot of nice benches have been built here. Some actually beautiful as well as functional. But, my attention keeps coming back to Fine Woodworking’s New-Fangled workbench. It just seems to be a design that is smart. Armed with just a few pages of write-up about it, that includes an exploded view and a couple of video demo’s of it I decided to make one. I am just about fi...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #24: Wall Mounted Floor Saving Workbench

12-05-2014 03:05 PM by Paul Bucalo | 4 comments »

This is what I was thinking of to go up against the field stone walls around the dungeon walls. http://www.familyhandyman.com/workshop/workbench/wood-work-bench/print The tall back ends would have to be screwed (bolted?) to the overhead beams for support since there isn’t any way to actually attach to the field stone. Maybe I will need to add short, sturdy feet extending out onto the floor space for additional support. Thick mil. plastic sheets between the wood and wall would ...

Workbench #6: Hello Tearout My Old Friend

02-17-2011 05:05 PM by HungryTermite | 4 comments »

I don’t know why but I have S&G stuck in my head, hence the title for this entry. I started milling the legs! After putting some epoxy on all 4 sides of each leg and then scraping most of it off with a carbide paint scraper, I started jointing the blanks for the legs. Here you can see one of the longer blanks with my two Home Depot push blocks (a.k.a. grout trowels) and my Harbor Freight infeed and Rigid outfeed set up. The Harbor Freight roller stand was only $14 but I have m...

Missing some potential updates here but lost pics and time so here is a half arsed tour of my building now. Acquired some new toys recently and some “furniture”.

Newfangled Workbench #1: Newfangled Freebie

01-14-2013 11:11 AM by Charlzecheeze | 4 comments »

I started work this weekend on a newfangled workbench. Thanks to those who have posted their previous projects (Nedb,Jeff, Ben and others) – they were all a big help in trying to piece together the bench from the kinda vague fww article. All the information in the world couldn’t stop me from making some mistakes along the way though… (It’s going to be a little shorter than planned) I guess that is to be expected, as this is one of my first solo projects. Once I ...

My Workbench #4: Phase 1 Nearly Complete

08-26-2009 03:07 AM by Jimi_C | 4 comments »

Got a LOT done last night, including getting everything glued and trimmed up. Here’s a (slightly blurry) picture of the bench as it is now: The base is bolted together, but the top is not attached yet. Still, this sucker is heavy and sturdy! I don’t even have the bolts through the base tightened all that much, and it does not rock at all. As soon as I bolt the top to it, I expect it to survive a tactical nuke :D I need to glue some 1×4’s onto the bottom of...

Workbench #7: Putting on my pretty skirt

09-30-2010 02:53 AM by Clay Ortiz | 4 comments »

I thought I would be done by now but between work and waiting on my end vise I haven’t got there yet. I have everything as far as I can go, with out the vise. So here is where it’s at. This is the jig I used to cut the tenon on the end of the top.Before After In this shot you can see how I was trying to get as much length out of the top as possible. Here I have the dado in the skirt before I cut the dove tails. I spent a lot of time thinking about the dove tail layo...
