Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #3: Platform and Work surface

241 days ago by Garry | 2 comments »

So the UMWW is pretty well completed and I’ve been using it for a few weeks now. I’m very pleased with it and I’ll submit some posts to cover the construction. First I built the rolling platform torsion box. The 2×4s are acting as clamps while the glue sets up. The corners were cut away to reduce the height and reinforced with 2×8s to carry the wheel loads. The finished rolling platform: The Work surface torsion box was built using the rolli...

Exit the workbench with shop renovation, sigh.....

248 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 15 comments »

Four years ago I made a ‘new fangled bench’ as seen in Fine Woodworking. Since then my so called woodworking journey has been good and I think I’ve come a long way and done a lot of stuff. I’m always on my bench and work from it all the time. Thing is I rarely use any of it’s features. Don’t get me wrong. I think this is a great bench. It works well and when planing and holding things in place of all sizes in many positions it can’t be beat. But, I fi...

SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #8: Flattening and Finishing

267 days ago by grfrazee | 3 comments »

Finally got the bench to the point where it’s time to flatten the top and finish it. Going into the project almost a year ago, I made a promise to myself that I would flatten the top by hand. I’ve seen the fancy router sled used by the Woodwhisperer (among others), but that’s not how I wanted to go (besides the fact that I don’t want to put down $50 on a wide-pass router bit). The top wasn’t too far out of flat, globally. However, there were lots of...

SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #7: Benchtop Divider

272 days ago by grfrazee | 4 comments »

My bench has had a gaping…er…gap in the middle of it since I built in in December 2012. Since I have Thanksgiving week off, I thought I’d remedy the situation. The divider is a simple piece made with two boards of sapwood-y black walnut with oak spacers. The bench was quite useful for gluing the thing together. The shot below shows that I staggered the spacers to accommodate different sized tools. After a little cleanup on the table saw and some fine...

SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #6: Plane Cabinet

274 days ago by grfrazee | 3 comments »

After getting tired of cleaning sawdust out of the nooks and crannies of my planes, I decided to build a little cabinet for them. It’s just a basic scrap plywood box with plywood drawers. I got a couple pairs of 100# full-extension drawer slides off Amazon for the drawers. I’m not the greatest at building carcasses (i.e., making them square), so I had to do some trial and error getting the fit right. For the drawer backs I just screwed on a couple pieces of scrap O...

Workbench Challenge #1: Best bang for the buck

280 days ago by shipwright | 36 comments »

I have just arrived back in Az for the winter and have decided I need a good workbench. The one I have at home in Canada is great but it’s too big for my little carport shop here so I have redesigned it a little and am going to take it on as a challenge to build the”best bang for the buck”workbench. It is really a challenge for myself but if anyone wants to take it up and give me a run for it you are absolutely welcome. With luck the outcome will be a cheap, easy to build...
