Wheelchair Accessible Moxen Vise

03-07-2013 05:32 AM by gsuing | 3 comments »

For the disabled woodworker, wrangling the standard front vise handle while dovetailing is a constant burden. See how the vise handle interferes with the legs. Enter the Moxen Vise. This vise was built from hardware made by Benchcrafted. Here is the Moxen Vise in standard mode. That’s great, but it is too high for the disabled woodworker. The solution is to flip the Moxen Vise over and lower it about four inches. Here it is flipped over and ready to be attached ...

Moxon bench #1: shaker desk I'm process. I need a bench!!!

04-16-2012 01:33 AM by John | 3 comments »

having just finished reading the Schwarz’s Workbench design book before heading back into my shop to finish my daughter’s Shaker style desk, I am seriously Jonesing for a real bench. rather than go all-out Ruobo for my first real bench, I’m thinking of making a Moxon-ish dovetailing bench. it also needs to be a bench for sharpening with my new Brian Burns double bevel system ( http://www.lessonsinlutherie.com/doublebevelsharpeninghirez.html ). I’m thinkin...

01-25-2013 01:08 AM by Ron Stewart | 3 comments »

This is the first of a series of blog entries describing a mobile torsion box workbench I recently completed. I posted a project summary a few days ago (Mobile Torsion Box Workbench). The overall series will cover construction plans and details, material costs, and odds and ends. In this entry, I’ll describe some of the factors and thought processes that led me to build this bench the way I did. Some Background about MeI’m an occasional woodworker. I probably average three or f...

New State, New Shop #4: Rippin' and Grippin'

04-16-2012 09:10 AM by DrPuk2U | 3 comments »

Well, the wall hasn’t gone up yet – the start got postponed a day or so. And I had time to start ripping down the yellow pine 2×12s This proved interesting, so I thought I would post a short snippet about that. I ran into a frustrating problem so I will probably post this on the forum as well. My plan is to build a big heavy Holtzapffel bench a la Chris Schwartz et al. Supposedly, yellow pine is a good candidate, strong, heavy and relatively cheap. I’ve never us...

Workbench #6: Dovetailing Endcaps

10-01-2011 02:40 AM by CartersWhittling | 3 comments »

Hello. Today I’ve been working on endcaps for the shoulder vise. I started by routing the grooves in the spacer block and in the doghole strip for the spacer block. I then squared up the end of each end cap for the shoulder vise and laid out and cut the tail on the long end cap with the bandsaw. I then transfered the tail and cut the pins with a jig on the bandsaw. And after a little fitting… I then put the rod through the top and clamped the spacer bl...

Workbenches and Work Surfaces #1: Standard Workbench

11-04-2010 06:52 AM by Obie | 3 comments »

I have been in the process (for a few months now) of building a general purpose workbench.I work on the computer and usually “play” on the computer so I have hard time prying myself off it and getting anything done. Well, the cooler weather here in Phoenix is helping. I based my design on the workbench featured in Wood Magazines Best-Ever Workshop Jigs, Tips, and Ideas 2010 pg. 86 – 88. In retrospect, I wish I had followed their plan exactly and used a solid core door ...

My Workbench #3: Getting Close to Being Done

08-24-2009 03:12 PM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

If I never have to cut MDF again, it will be too soon… Unfortunately I’m going to have to trim the edges of the MDF with my router, since I decided to be sloppy and clean it up that way rather than try to make perfect cuts with my circular saw (not likely). At least all the sheets are cut, so I’ll probably take these outside when I’m trimming so I don’t spend another hour vacuuming my garage. Overall, things are getting close to wrapping up, for the primary ...
