My New Workbench #3: Chopping the Leg Mortises

07-08-2015 03:20 PM by mramseyISU | 0 comments »

Time to get on with the part I was dreading the most, chopping mortise for the legs in the benchtop. I was dreading this because they were so big, 1”W x 4”L x 2”D to be exact. I roughed out the tenons on my tablesaw with a dado stack so nothing really to see there, then I finished them with my router plane. Next came the chop chop. These were the first mortises I’ve ever tried to cut completely with hand tools. I’ve done several where I drilled out most of the wa...

My new assembly table and I are off to a rough start

01-18-2014 09:57 AM by WatchYerFingers13 | 1 comment »

After a long uphill battle with my girlfriend, she has finally decided that I need a small bench/ assembly table at our house. My main bench and all of my tools currently reside on my fathers back porch, But due to my work schedule and time constraints it has become necessary for me to be able to do some work from home. So why a rough start you ask?...Two sheets of 3/4 MDF and one sheet of 1/4 tempered hard board later. Ouch! They slid right out of the back of my SUV directly onto my shi...

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...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #7: wall bench #1 (remove/redesign/rebuild)

04-05-2014 05:40 PM by Tugboater78 | 6 comments »

Don’t have many pictures of the before to dig up but I’m sure in my other posts it can be seen. the shelf portion in this picture i took back out ( it was deeper than the bench top and kept hitting my knees on it) and gave to a neighbor who flipped it upside down and uses it to set his beer on while restoring his late 60s El Camino. It was sitting around originally made for another spot in my basement but i somehow measured wrong and it didn’t fit. The old bench, which...

Finished the Research and Making a WorkBench! #14: Leg vice part (Duet) (part II)

11-28-2009 05:31 AM by RichClark | 1 comment »

Continuing the last blog post. Took the Leg vice face to my table saw (It has a channel that the fence runs in (fits perfect) and placed a dead wood under it and drilled out 1” Spaced holes… (that way cool old cold steel pin, is yep! An old 3/4” Allen wrench!)The holes are for “expanding the jaw” for larger work.. This is it in place with a test fit of the “pin” you can use wood dowels also… or anything I suppose… OK that wor...

Bowling Alley Workbench #1: Disassembly

05-28-2008 12:51 AM by YooperCasey | 6 comments »

Hello folks, I figure everyone should get a bit of a chuckle out of this project. My sister recently moved into a new apartment and for whatever strange reason she had somehow acquired a six foot long piece of bowling alley. Normally I would have just pitched it in the trash, but the grain caught my eye, birdseye! Upon further inspection it was a mix of birdseye, curly maple, regular maple and white oak. So it was acquired, and quickly moved home. Upon closer inspection I notice a few t...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #8: wall bench #2 (top finished/center section)

09-26-2014 01:18 AM by Tugboater78 | 9 comments »

Well the other day I finally got some 3/16 hardboard and had the blue box rip it to the 24.25 inches to fit on the top. I put drops of glue in key spots to keep it from moving. I then installed a rip cutoff from my hand tool bench in slow progress, damn nails imbedded/hidden in some have me frustrated. Glued screwed and plugged this to the front edge of the top. I wiped on some Early American stain to pop the grain a bit more, it has lots of figure imho. Fast forward to today. I was up...

Workbench.

03-05-2014 03:43 AM by Steve Tripp | 5 comments »

I’ve been working on this bench for more than a year and am finally almost finished. The base is ash and is from a plan I got from woodstore.net and the top is 2×6 lumber from Home Depot and is loosely based on the Stumpy Nubs 2×6 Roubo bench. The top is 36” x 59” and 5” thick. I made it wider than both of the plans called for because I wanted to use it for assembly. I haven’t had a chance to seal it yet because as soon as the top was flat I started...

Workbench #7: Laying out the legs

02-28-2011 06:21 AM by HungryTermite | 1 comment »

Yesterday I took the leg blanks back to the jointer and the planer and got them down to a hair over 5” x 5”. One of them ended up a hair under. I found out during this process that the depth stop on the Makita planer does not handle anything 5 inches thick so it was a little tricky to try to get all 4 pieces exact. All that will be left to do on these is to hit them with a smooth plane to take off the plane tracks, which are barely even visible. It will also fix the “...

Kids Workbench Build #9: Wagons(vise) Ho!

09-27-2014 08:14 PM by Airframer | 2 comments »

Hiya, Last week was all about the leg vise and this week I focused my efforts on the wagon vise. My helper hasn’t been privy to this part mainly due to it being rather machine heavy. We still have melt downs when machines are running (to be fair so do I sometimes lol) so I was flying solo for all that follows. I hope to get him out there tomorrow for more shop time but till then this is what we have. It started with this.. Then I went about making the wagon sled the same ...
