YAWB - Yet Another Workbench (Or My Take on the Ultimate Tool Stand) #3: Carcass

04-01-2016 08:40 PM by mrhammerstein | 0 comments »

Long break, but I do have some updates thankfully. So here’s what I’ll be building in this part. Front Back After the torsion box, it was time to start the carcass. As mentioned before, I went with plywood over MDF out of preference and aesthetics. There isn’t great plywood to be had where I live, but I found a respectable lumber yard with cheaper (and better) plywood than the big box stores. It’s 11-ply, but still has some voids. It’s a good compromi...

My First Workbench #1: Intro

03-31-2016 12:25 AM by GrumpyCub | 6 comments »

Hello all! This is my first blog post as a Lumberjocks member so it is sort of an introduction/project progress post.I got into wood working years ago in high school, and even worked at a cabinet shop for a brief period right out of high school. Recently I built a shop in my back yard and have slowly been getting back into the wood working hobby. This blog will show my progress on my first wood working bench and I would appreciate any feedback. It has taken me a long time to decide to j...

Pallet Workbench Build #1: Tabletop Lumber Prep

03-30-2016 05:07 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

The time has come to start building my new workbench. I am using wood from some industrial size pallets from my work. The wood is some kind of spruce that came out of Hungary. In this installment I will be preparing the stock that will become the tabletop. I have to do some serious milling to get the stock straight and square before I could get it ready for glue-up. Be sure to participate in the comments section, and I hope you enjoy the video! View on YouTube Instagram: https://www.i...

Sawbench Notes

03-28-2016 01:24 AM by Alan | 0 comments »

Like my previous post, this is mostly a note for my own future reference. I’m trying to centralize all my woodworking notes in one place, preferably one accessible from anywhere, and LJ is the only logical choice. So I have some unusual needs in a sawbench. Since I am an above-knee amputee, the conventional method of holding the board in place with ‘pot roast power’ is a no-go. I’ve tried it, it’s excruciatingly painful and it doesn’t work to hold the...

My first "real" workbench #1: Benches that I've owned and used

03-16-2016 01:50 PM by KentInOttawa | 4 comments »

This entry is to provide you with some of my background experience. It might help you better understand some of my upcoming design decisions. So let’s go… I started my journey into woodworking land with a Black and Decker Workmate 300. For all its limitations, it was a good tool. Certainly, at the time (early 1980s), it was far superior to any work that I was capable of producing with my skill set. Over the years this poor thing was used and abused, left outside to experience s...

My new roubo style bench. #1: My wallet is screaming: 2x4s, and hardwood, and vices; oh my!

02-29-2016 03:52 AM by emart | 0 comments »

I decided it was time to build myself a real work bench. Initially I was just going to buy a pre-made table top and build a simple base. Then I decided i should have a pair of vises as well. And then I just sort of kept falling down the rabbit hole after that. The top is made from two beech table tops I bought from Ikea and laminated together (blasphemy I know.) The skirting is made from laminated pieces of oak which is drying as I type this. The skirting is 2×6 to make it extra...
