... THANK YOU to – I have driven by the Cloisters a million times, but until I read about it in her blog, I never considered going. workbench in the workshop from the Ephrata Cloister. (pictures go here – but no joy in posting flickr pics, please click the link below) The English Style workbench had no stretchers across the front or back – but on closer inspection, I think I found the mortises where they once were. It̵...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #5: Building the Top w/ a Spot for the Wagon Vise

04-20-2012 05:23 PM by Mauricio | 21 comments »

I put my wooden screw build on hold for a minute. While I ordered the router bit I needed to build the thread cutting jig I made some progress on the top. Here is a quick review from previous blogs of how I got to this point: The raw materials:Started with a green table I got for free from a cabinet shop. Very cupped due to the piths in the slabs. Cut out the piths. I ended up with the good parts which were all quarter sawn, about 2.5” Red Oak. The knots will be hidden on th...

Workbench #1: Hand plane usage help

04-19-2012 11:15 PM by russde | 8 comments »

Ok, I am a beginner, a noob, an fng (for you military types). I have a basement to work in and have been purchasing tools to work with (the fun part, so far). Tonight I started on ‘my workbench’. It’s going to be cheap, it’s going to be ugly, but I need it to be functional. The top is 2×4 Doug fir from a box store. I am aiming for a 5’ x 3’ surface solely due to space constraints (living on-base, military, I’m lucky to have a basement to work ...

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...

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 ( ). I’m thinkin...

Workbench #3: Workbench - Trestle base beginning

04-15-2012 06:22 PM by twobyfour16 | 5 comments »

Back at it….FINALLY!!!Considering my last entry on this project was almost 2 years ago, I thought I had better get going. I resumed work on my workbench recently. I had most of the trestle components laminated up (legs & feet anyway), so I started working on the mortises & tennons. I started with the feet, which required 2 big mortises (1 1/2” x 2 1/4”) 2 1/2” long. I drilled most of the material out with a 1/4” drill bit followed by a 3/4” fors...

My Workbench/Outfeed/Assembly Table

04-15-2012 12:35 PM by Sailor | 5 comments »

I built this simple but very functional workbench /outfeed table / assembly table and figured I would show everyone how I constructed it. I was influenced by lot of people here on Luberjocks, thank you all! Note: I know I have the last 2 videos posted and I don’t want t spam, but it has been 24 hours so I figured it was ok.

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #4: Into the beyond...

I’ve been “done” with this project for nearly two weeks at this point, but I feel I should close this out. Along with the bench, I felt the need to showcase some of my favorite tools. I plan to update this blog with some of the uses for the gap that I can come up with…

Work Bench #1: An Easy and Fast Rolling Workbench

04-12-2012 10:09 PM by Retsof | 5 comments »

I recently got back into woodworking after being laid off from a job that required so much travel that I couldn’t fit any shop time into my life. It’s been about four years since I have completed a project and in between job interviews (I’m flying to Kansas City for one on Friday), I’m building myself a few new work stations, jigs, and tools that I will need to take a crack at building some of my own furniture. First up, I needed a workbench with a nice flat surfac...
