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&...

09-12-2015 02:22 PM by paxorion | 2 comments »

Last night, after several nights of working on and off on the project, I finally finished my workbench and I couldn’t be happier. There’s still a few loose ends to take care of (adding the shelf for heavier tool storage. I will write more about it in the project post.

Why buy it when you can make it! #38: Workbench Time [Part 2] - Nice legs?

08-16-2015 05:40 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

After a few months of slacking off, I’m finally picking back up my workbench project. I purchased 3×2x10’s from the big box store and had them drying in my basement for a few weeks. The plan calls for legs that around 3.75” square, built up like a French Roubo workbench. Tonight, I got to milling the lumber. After filling the dust collector, I was finally done milling the material, and glued up the legs. I decided to glue up 2 legs per clamp up. After fini...

YAWB - Yet Another Workbench (Or My Take on the Ultimate Tool Stand) #2: Torsion Box

08-11-2015 07:57 PM by mrhammerstein | 0 comments »

The original plans said to build this after building the carcass, but I am not one to follow every direction. So it was up first. Design was completed and away I go. Even though I decided to make the UTS out of plywood, I made the torsion box out of MDF to take advantage of the its dead-flatness. I shrank the dimensions a bit so the plywood face would be flush with the rest of the carcass. I also moved around the rails so the casters would line up with the hardwood inside supports. ...

YAWB - Yet Another Workbench (Or My Take on the Ultimate Tool Stand) #1: Design

08-07-2015 08:19 PM by mrhammerstein | 0 comments »

NOTE:I originally posted this as a Project and not a Blog entry. So I’ve moved it over here and will build upon it. I can not figure out how to delete the project, so my mistake will continue to live on, like most of my mistakes. ====================================================== After moving tables bought from auctions and using sawhorses and 2×4s as a miter saw base, I decided I needed a proper workbench. I spent a few months scouring the internet and magazines to find ...

08-05-2015 06:38 AM by Jorgearaujo | 2 comments »

Well after restoring the Clearcut chisels I figured they and the rest of my chisels should have a special place to call home. I took one of the drawers under my workbench and made it my chisel drawer. Check out this little video I titled THE PERFECT FIT. View on YouTube Thank you.
