Workbench holding and appliances for hybrid bench

12-03-2011 10:59 PM by Dallas | 3 comments »

These are all helpful objects that cost next to nothing to build. The more precise, the better they are. Mine are hardly precise. Most work in concert with the bench or are part of it. Starting from the beginning. Crosscutting or ripping on a sawbench. Here I have an extension shop bent. I got this idea from the Close Grain blog and plan from Tom Fidgen’s Made by Hand book. Crosscutting using a bench hook. Simple bench hook. I raise the planing stop to support th...

Workbenches...finally #2: The other bench

12-01-2011 07:31 PM by Shopsmithtom | 7 comments »

Shortly after I found a Sjobergs bench at an auction, I came across an elderly woodworker in my neighborhood that was giving up his shop for health reasons. I heard he had a Shopsmith for sale, and being who I am, I couldn’t resist a visit to see if I might add yet another one to my shop. Alas, it wasn’t to be. He wanted too much for it. ( I like to find them cheap) He did, however, have a workbench he had built some 50 years ago that he was selling for $75. While the lower par...

Workbenches...finally #1: Workbench # 1, the Sjobergs bench

12-01-2011 06:39 PM by Shopsmithtom | 4 comments »

A while back, I spent $90 at an estate type auction for a disassembled woodworking bench. I noticed that it said “Sjobergs” on it & figured I was safe at that price, as a Harbor Freight woodworking bench that was not as stout routinely sold on sale for about $120. This bench looked like it was hardly used. When I got it home, I discovered that it was what appeared to be an earlier model of the current Nordic Plus 1660 bench. The only difference was the lower shelf configuratio...

Shop builds #1: work bench

11-30-2011 04:51 AM by SamuelP | 2 comments »

One day this workbench may be done. It is made from construction lumber. 4×4s, 2×6s and 2×4s. Other than being a functional piece for my “shop”. I wanted this to be a learning process for joinery I have not attempted. The size is about 4’x2’x35”. The small size has been depicted by my small space, the front portion of a 1 car garage. My one goal was to complete the structure of this workbench using no hardware, i.e., nails, screws, bo...

Workbench #17: Completion

11-22-2011 05:17 AM by CartersWhittling | 22 comments »

Hello, this is probably my last workbench blog entry, now that my bench is complete! Like I said in my last blog, the workbench has been complete a couple weeks before this post on November 12. With my last post I had wrote about completing the base. After I had the base assembled, glued up, and drawbored I placed the bench top onto the base. Previous to putting the top on the base I had put one coat of boiled linseed oil on the underside of the top. The top is removable from the base, I deci...

My first workbench (well...official one anyway)

11-15-2011 06:40 AM by ocwoodworker | 2 comments »

Made of Beach. The tail vise is the Veritas end vise that has a quick release. The face vise is actually a cool piece of work from Hovarter vises ( http://www.hovartercustomvise.com/?page_id=49) . It is a quick release 26” behemoth. Clamps down like a mean pit bull. Hopefully will get around to building some shelves and drawers, but right now I really want to take ‘er for a run around the block with a good G&G table build.

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #19: It's a Sham

11-14-2011 02:51 PM by Eric | 6 comments »

Still waiting on my oil to entirely dry. Meanwhile, I thought I would fix something that I knew would bug me all the time. My big honkin’ wooden vise jaw is too massive for the few inches of threading in the big wooden nut in the leg vise, and as a result the big wooden screw tilts downwards towards the jaw. See look: here in the very back of the leg you can see the nut: The nut is actually not glued into the leg at all; it’s merely held in place by those blocks that are...

Workbench #16: Base Complete

11-14-2011 02:09 AM by CartersWhittling | 2 comments »

Hello. At this point in time I have the workbench finished, but this post will be about the base. I will make a video going over the completed bench and then post my last blog entry of the bench. Shortly after the last blog post I bought the last portion of wood I needed for the bench. The first piece I worked on was for the underside of the bench top. I made a piece 4 1/2” wide and about 1 1/2” thick to glue to the back edge of the top to make the edge the same thickness as th...

Workbench Construction #2: Building the benchtops

11-13-2011 08:51 PM by Richard B | 4 comments »

In this post today I wanted to go over the materials and methods I used for constructing my benchtops for the new workbench.Each benchtop is an identical lamination of 4 layers. In my original design, the top was 3 layers thick (each about 3/4 inch thick). However once I completed that part of it I realized that the bench wasn’t going to be heavy enough. The material I was using at that point was all aspen and pine, with red oak trim. I noticed that the density of SYP (southern yellow p...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #18: Workbench Eve

11-12-2011 04:43 PM by Eric | 7 comments »

It’s amazing how close I was to being done the past several months. If you go back and look at my archives (don’t worry about it, I’m about to sum up), I didn’t make ANY progress from May to October because I dreaded the flattening and leveling that I needed to do. Once I got over that hump, I made ginormous strides in no time. Since my last blog post when I called the bench level (enough), I have flattened it (enough) and planed/sawed the horns off the leg tenons. ...
