Building a real workbench without real skills

03-04-2010 04:25 AM by DragonLady | 6 comments »

Last Thanksgiving, I built a nice, sturdy little bench for me to work on while I set up my workshop. It’s now time to build a real, heavy-duty, woodworking bench that I can use to hold my pieces while I plane, etc. I’m a novice. The desire to learn is there, and the patience to do things over (well…most of the time). I learn from my mistakes very well! I just keep finding new ones to make :) So I sat down and read every internet article, forum post, magazine article...

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #2: The Design Process

03-01-2010 10:46 AM by DoctorDan | 4 comments »

The decision to go RouboAfter my initial research, I like many woodworkers, fell in love with the roubo. My old benches were designed to be portable or were made from old desks. They never stood still. Planning, even chiselling would cause them to move about. There’s something rather solid about having 5”x5” legs. SizeOriginally, I thought I could do most of my work on a 3’x3’ bench. All my heavy chopping/sawing on a solid base and use work horses to support l...

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #1: The Beginning

02-25-2010 11:57 PM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

Have you ever started a project, given yourself a budget and a time frame… and then well… you go over budget… and you need that new tool… oh and you got busy, or had to redo something… and well… If you haven’t; welcome to woodworking. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your first project and many more to come. At the start of 2009 I decided I wanted to build a new workbench. I was taking on a new job so I decided 12 months would be a good time fr...

Shop Stuff. #4: Getting Started (Finally)

02-07-2010 11:35 PM by rsmith71 | 6 comments »

Finally getting past ideas and starting to work on what I want to do with my garage/shop. I’ve been looking for ideas and drawing stuff up, trying to decide what I wanted and where to start. I couldn’t really decide where to start so I spent last night building face frames for 4 of the cabinets (router table, workbench, scroll saw & bandsaw bench, & a mobile stand for benchtop tools). Frames are done and now to start cutting sheet goods. I clamped the 3 frames for the r...

Planning the Makeover #1: SketchUp Plans - Workbench #1

02-04-2010 04:01 AM by Jeison | 6 comments »

Edit: Thanks to everyone (esp DaveR) for their suggestions/help/nitpicking :D I completely redid the project and got rid of the wierd dimensions and such, and I’m much happier with it now. I didn’t bother with cutouts or shims for the vise this time since until I get one, thats kind of pointless, and overall tried to keep it simple. Here is the Sketchup File I had fun working on the Sheet Goods rack, I decided to get going on some of the other projects I have planned for t...

Workshop Rehab #1: My First Workbench

01-23-2010 12:38 AM by evause | 4 comments »

I’ve decided to get into woodworking – specifically to build some new cabinets for the office in kitchen. I’ve realized in order to do this (if I’m serious), I’m going to have improve my existing workspace – and at the same time, get some practice. Until this part of the project is complete, i’ll just be posting the latest picture – below. Frame is assembled.

Workbench #1: Entering the Design Phase

01-22-2010 04:48 AM by HungryTermite | 7 comments »

I just finished “Workbenches” by Chris Schwarz. I really enjoyed the book and it gave me a boost of motivation to get started on my workbench project. I enjoyed his writing style, his humor, as well as the little bit of history that was sprinkled in. I saw the quote somewhere years ago that “A man that does not know the history of his trade is continually forced to reinvent the wheel”. I tend to believe that. My current workbench is a folding table from costco. ...
