Building My Roubo Bench #9: Finishing the Underside of the Top

884 days ago by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

Since I couldn’t start drawboring the stretchers and legs together, I thought I’d spend my wait time finishing all the work on the underside of the bench. First, I had to make sure the underside of the top was reasonably flat. Prior to doing the final glue-up of the top, I had two 12” wide sections, each of which was run through my planer. So I knew those two sections were identical in thickness and were very flat. And I used my jointer to joint the mating edge of each s...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #7: The Legs (Without Pegs)

1366 days ago by Eric | 2 comments »

I don’t know what is making me procrastinate on this bench. I think maybe it was the hand planing that was a part of this next step. Well anyway, it wasn’t that hard – I just had to make the tenons on the long stretchers a bit narrower so they’d fit nice and snug in the mortises. Not too hard. Next step – whittling some pegs for drawboring the stretchers, and at the same time getting a start on laminating the benchtop!

Torsion Box Assembly Table #4: Finishing the Box

1689 days ago by Morton | 2 comments »

I put on both skins, the hardboard top and even picked out some rough-sawn cherry to finish the project! I created 3/4” plywood squares to just fit inside of the torsion grid. I placed a row of them in line with my front vice in order to have more depth for potential bench dogs (1/2” MDF + 3/4” Plywood). I also attached a double stack (1.5”) to the bottom skin, where the bench vice lag bolts will attach. This should give plenty of support for those pieces. I...

LSD Workbench #1: LSD Hickory Bench

1872 days ago by Red Rocks School of Fine Woodworking | 2 comments »

This workbench has had an interesting history. The Hickory was donated by National Lumber Supply. This Hickory makes up the majority of the top. The trestle (base) is constructed in Ash. The height was set for shorter students, actually using a student in one of the fundamentals classes as a model for the bench height. The height is around 30” – so considerably shorter than our normal benches. The bench trestle got it’s start as a demo for the Fall 09 workbench class. The joi...

Workbench in a Weekend (Tom Caspar)

326 days ago by Hellough | 2 comments »

So I decided to breakdown and build a workbench for my super small shop. It was a hefty decision, considering I’m working in a single stall garage from the 50’s that barely had enough room for my sedan from the beginning. But it seemed to me that a workbench was a must if I wanted to take fine woodworking seriously at all. With that being said, I also didn’t have the time, space or skills to plane tons of boards to an exact thickness and insure a quality top after it was ...

Workshop Makeover #2: Workbench Design 1

861 days ago by pound | 2 comments »

I am starting to get the hang of SketchUp but something tells me that the pro version may be even better. Why spend that money on a computer program when I can get wordworking tools, right? Ok, so here is my first shot at designing a built in tablesaw and workbench. I made a stacked cabinet design because I know I can actually accomplish making a cabinet. I also would like to replace the drawers I currently have in my bench. I can’t even imagine how heavy 12 2×4x51’s a...

Building my secondary workbench

1467 days ago by yuri | 2 comments »

I have one workbench, which is kind of universal. It started as glued together two office table tops, lying on something quickly made from 2×4. Whole construction is attached to the garage wall for stability. Heh, it proved as not fancy thing but pretty good start. Later it started to be evolutionary changed. I added front vise, made bench dog wholes, and began to dress top with oak edging. I could work on it without problem, but … since I do not have a lot working surface, these t...

Workbench #1: Workbench kick off

13 days ago by Matt | 2 comments »

As a home owner I’ve struggled for years with projects because I don’t have a solid work surface. When I started wood carving recently this became painfully obvious. So now I’ve decided to invest in a proper workbench. After looking at 100s of benches online and in books I think I know what I want: Size: 6’ long, 24” deep. This will fit my workspace well. Work clamping: 1) A leg vice. For this I will use this from Veritas: http://www.veritastoo...

My First Workbench #18: Day 18: The big dry fit!

697 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

To see the picture heavy version of this post, please click here! Very excited today because I got a lot accomplished! I ended with a dry fit of the entire bench and started work on the leg vise. To get started, I finished sawing the bridle joint on the last leg…best cuts to date! Straight as an arrow!When the last legs were cut, I grabbed the rubber mallet and chisels and hacked out the joints in about 10 minutes. So much faster than before! Sharp chisels are a joy to wor...
