New Kind of Woodworking Clamp! #2: EVEN BETTER! Andy redesigned his 4-way parallel clamp. Check it out!

12-12-2015 08:40 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

Andy redesigned the 4-way parallel clamp and now it is even better! The original design had an adjustment screw for different thickness of wood and it also had kind of a hook on the end where the two clamps nested together. The new design has eliminated the adjustment screw and the hook has been replaced with something that looks more like a regular parallel clamp. I have the actual prototypes in my shop in Minneapolis and Andy is in Denver. We posted corresponding videos to describe...

A quick tour of my shop.

12-06-2015 07:31 PM by CharlieK | 15 comments »

I have been meaning to do a shop tour video for some time, but never quite got around to it. Then I met a young photographer named Michael DeVowe. Michael graciously came over to my house and filmed this for me. I have received “feedback” in the past about too many “um’s and ah’s” in my presentation. After Michael gave me the completed video I went back and did some post editing and cut out most of the um’s and ah’s. Let me know how you ...

handtool workbench #12: Putting it all together - part 1

11-20-2015 04:57 AM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

So i reckon i got too excited to get this together so not many pictures but I will try to explain as I can. Sure to be many edits…as i am posting this from memory i will do specifics later. So I left off with dryfitting my leg assemblies, i think. I took those assemblies and mated them to my top slab and aprons with clamps, while in my tight shop that night. I just had to see what it would look like. The next morning drug everything out onto my carport. And put it all together ...

handtool workbench #11: Leg assemblies dryfit and a mockup

11-13-2015 08:01 AM by Tugboater78 | 6 comments »

So i think i left off working on tenons. I worked on marking all of them out after posting last entry. Got two of them ready for first leg assembly. And after a lot of paring and beating about i got it together. It is nowhere near perfect cosmetically, but solid on a functional level. Then i went to bed. Got up this past morning, and worked on rough sizing of tenons for next assembly. I hadn’t gotten mortices done on other 2 legs but had marked them out. After my experience cho...

handtool workbench #10: Chopping leg mortices

11-12-2015 01:57 AM by Tugboater78 | 6 comments »

So i finally getting around to some joinery. Ive never chopped out a mortice by hand before, but there is a first time for everything right? Not as hard as it may seem, didnt take long to get down with a sharp chisel. Cut about halfway through from one side, flipped leg and cut through from other side. After measuring multiple times and marking everything, my first one didnt line up in center. Was about 3/16ths off. Ill half to figure.out how to fix that later..Second wasnt ...

handtool workbench #9: All parts roughed out (i think)

11-06-2015 04:08 AM by Tugboater78 | 5 comments »

So where did i leave off? Been sporadically working on rest of the parts needed. Morning after last post i took my toolwell and apron laminations out to the back shop. Changed blades on my Dewalt 733 planer. The last set ran into few nails from my reclaimed oak, unfortuently i do not own a metal detector yet. (Really need to get one). Scrounged around in the shop for rest of pieces i need for base assemblies. The base will all be oak. I already had 4 pieces for legs roughed out. ...

handtool workbench #8: Plowin ahead..

11-02-2015 12:27 AM by Tugboater78 | 5 comments »

In case i forgot to mention, i am currently making a Paul Sellers inspired bench. I am not making the one he shows in his blog/videos, but more like the one in his book, i think. I currently do not have his book, but from what i have read and seen elsewhere it is not as deep and the toolwell is more toward the back. I wanted to build a big bench but i have found most of what i will do will work on something smaller. My space doesnt really allow for such either. So planning on a 5.5&...
