Another New Fangled Workbench #3: Lessons from the planing beam

04-20-2008 06:57 PM by MichaelW | 2 comments »

I think the blog series will be in order from here forward. I haven’t had a lot of time to allocate to the workbench project lately, but was able to get the additional plane blades and sharpen and hone them. Much more pleasant to have a couple extras at hand and take nice shavings. It is such a great feeling to have a plane well tuned and work a piece of wood. visible above is a shot of the planing beam as I finished up one side. I have a combination square resting on it and got ...

Building the AskWoodMan Roubo #2: The Materials

08-02-2013 08:20 PM by AccidentalNinja | 2 comments »

Side Rails will be redwood 2×6 and a 2×4 glued up. Wasn’t my first choice but I did have the wood already. If I beat up the tops that bad.. I’ll probably just glue one some hardwood… or… make another one. :) I found 2 of these beams in the dumpster at my work. These will be my legs. They measure about 8.5 inches wide by 2 3/8… they were 42 inches long. First cut into one of the beams… Wow.. looks very pretty… almost wish I wasnt u...

Oak Workbench #1: Getting Started

09-04-2007 04:21 AM by MattD | 2 comments »

I think it’s time for a new workbench. The old fold up table works ok for some things, but it’s not great for holding work flat and it’s too low. I got a ton of short 6/4 white oak boards from a local woodworker a few weeks ago. Since then, I have been stuck with the idea of making them into a workbench top and got a start on it today. The main features I’m planning are: 24” x 60” 2 1/2” Thick Front and End vise Round Dog holes 37...

Just a quick update....

05-24-2010 11:57 PM by Shawn Sealer | 2 comments »

I took some new pictures of my shop. (More on my site) They are all in the shop section on my blog. The old ones were taken with my cell phone, so the quality was not the best. Still working out a few things with my blog (trying to get some things with Google search worked out). I’m having trouble getting this site to show up in Google search. Hope to get this stuff worked out soon. If anyone can help it would be grately appreaciated. Also, I have been editing away, I have taped a...

Shop in the Sky #5: Lathe Table with dust collection

09-09-2011 11:00 PM by EROCK | 2 comments »

Newest addition to the ongoing project is a new table for my mini lathe. I had issues before with chips/dust collecting under the motor, causing it to get extremely hot. My solution to this was to use the table saw dust collection hood that I had laying around and inset it into the table top. I feel this will adequately stop the dust from collecting, as well as cause a stream of cool air to constantly be passing by the motor, causing it to run much cooler. After I get a chance to test o...

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

02-25-2012 02:25 AM 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)

10-31-2010 04:27 PM 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

12-12-2009 05:58 AM 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

06-12-2009 04:10 AM 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...
