Roubo Bench - Getting the base ready

1895 days ago by kenn | 6 comments »

Well its time for me to get all of the mortise and tenons ready for the base. First I had a few holes that I wanted to drill in the legs for hold downs ( actually for holding up). My drill press wouldn’t go all of the way through the legs so I finished the holes with a bit brace and a 3/4” auger bit checking for when the point came through. Then I flipped the leg and finished them. I wanted to get my strecher length right on, so I took my measurement right off the legs. ...

SYP Roubo #2: Base Stickered and Drying

1908 days ago by ustompsteve | 5 comments »

I cut the boards for the base to length and stickered them for drying. I used 2×12 SYP for this so that I can have the legs end up 5” thick. Based on a recommendation I have been getting my joists at 84 Lumber. The are Grade 1 whereas the BORG carries Grade 2. The 84 lumber stuff is way clearer and I think it is about the same price. Now I wait… —steve

Tool thoughts #18: New fangled Bench almost complete

1909 days ago by NedB | 5 comments »

Well the past two weeks the shop has actually warmed up to a point where I can be out there without losing body parts to frostbite. I hauled a few 2×4’s up to Grizz’s shop and we got nearly all of the parts cut to dimension. I could just as easily done it at my shop, but it was fun visiting his shop as always.Once I got them back in my shop, here’s what I wound up with:all cut to length and ready to go, except for the holes for the cross clamp piping. I tried asse...

Roubo Bench - She's Got Legs

1919 days ago by kenn | 15 comments »

It’s time to get some legs on this baby. My son and I started my milling the mostly oak stock I am using for the legs. I glued them up and dressed them up until they came in at a finished dimension of 3 5/8” by 4 5/8”. They are beefy but I want this to be a sturdy bench that’s not going to move and has enough size for whatever project I want to tackle. The top is 23 5/8” wide and looks to finsh up about 9’ 2” long. I settled on 1 1/2R...

A Solid Foundation to Build a Future - A New Workbench #1: building the bases

1927 days ago by bfd | 7 comments »

So my latest project is officially underway. Click Here to see the back story and details. I decide to build from the ground up so I start with the slab legs first. Here you see one end panel with the heavy duty glides attached and the 3 inner layers of Particle board. The glides are rated for either 1000 or 2000 lbs (either way they should hold!) The layers are glued and screwed together to make a particle board sandwich. I then atta...

A solid foundation to build a future - A New Workbench.

1932 days ago by bfd | 15 comments »

It has been a while since I have been able to contribute much to Lumberjocks as life has been very hectic over the past few months. Anyway I have just embarked on my next project…building my own bench finally! I have been tossing ideas around for more then a year now. I have seen several examples of beautiful benches from many of you (Gary Sharp, Damian, John Ormsby and several others). I think I have read Lon Schleining’s The Workbench three times cover to cover and have change...

Tool thoughts #14: New fangled Bench

1935 days ago by NedB | 4 comments »

Add me to the list of fans of the Jim White Newfangled workbench. I stopped at my local lumber yard today and picked up several 2×4x12’ boards. Then I headed up to Jim Capozzi’s shop where we dressed the boards and cut almost all of the major parts to size, I didn’t bring my 2×8 with me or I”m sure we’d have gotten ALL of the parts cut. I just looked at Ben’s bench blog, and realized I need to cut two more back bench support pieces, That’s n...

The Workbench #2: The Plan

1936 days ago by Craig S. Cottingham | 1 comment »

A couple of months ago, I started obsessing about workbenches. I downloaded every workbench article I could find at Popular Woodworking . I scoured every back issue of every magazine I have. I borrowed a copy of Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use by Christopher Schwarz from the public library, then bought a copy of my own once I realized I’d found the Holy Grail. I’ll save most of my gushing for a proper review (that’s another post) and try to st...
