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...

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 #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 It was sitting around originally made for another spot in my basement but i somehow measured wrong and it didn’t fit.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...

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...

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...

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...

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 “...

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

03-31-2009 02:31 AM by bfd | 7 comments »

So my latest project is officially underway. Click Here http://lumberjocks.com/bfd/blog/8062 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...

Twin Pipe Vise

07-20-2014 09:08 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I’m tired of seeing all these moxon vises and not making my own. They are pretty expensive. I really need something to act as a front vise on my bench. This takes care of that problem and it also raises any cutting that i’ll be doing by 7 1/2” (which helps out the back). Here is my version of the moxon vise using two pipe clamps. Check out the video. Please subscribe to my channel and check out all the other videos on there.
