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 It was sitting around originally made for another spot in my basement but i somehow measured wrong and it didn’t fit.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 Build #29: Finishing one endcap and cutting my first dovetails..

07-14-2013 05:57 PM by Airframer | 5 comments »

Yesterday started with the bench side of the Toolwell. I glued up the back wall the night before and yesterday morning it was time to remove the clamps and rip that to the correct thickness. I decided to do it this way so I could clamp the other side to this one as a cutting guide. It worked pretty well. A quick pass with the No 4 and it is done. Then I trimmed up the leading edge where the dovetails will be and started on the mortise in the endcap. I used the same process a...

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...

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.

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #5: Legs: Check

09-26-2010 02:51 PM by Eric | 0 comments »

So I’m done with my leg glue-up on all four legs. The mortises were really the thing I was dreading most, and now they’re done. And my left front leg has a nice 2 1/4” hole to accomodate the wood screw for the leg vise. That was a beast to do with an expansive bit. My chest is still sore from the bit brace, and I was even using a board to better distribute the pressure. Right now I’m en route to Germany for a conference. Will be back on Saturday. Then I’ll fin...

A Workbench's Progress #3: How much wood will $80 buy?

05-31-2007 05:07 AM by TheGravedigger | 7 comments »

I decided at this point that I should install the front and end vises with their wooden jaws prior to surfacing the top. So, my son and I (remember, 150 pounds or so) flipped the benchtop on its back, and I made sure the vise mounting spots were relatively flat and square to the edges. Then it was time to construct the wooden jaws, and obviously, whitewood would never do for this application. The only logical choice seemed to be maple, which is not available as a locally-produced wood. ...

My Workbench #1: Day 1 Complete

08-16-2009 10:57 PM by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

I managed to get started today and got a lot done, even with a short break to scramble some eggs for my wife (she’s in nursing school and works damn near full time, so I do most of the cooking). I started out by clearing some room on the MDF sheets I’d laid out last night. I put a few of the 1×4’s I bought under the sheets to keep them off the garage floor. I figured this was the flatest surface I was going to get for now, so I used it. First up, I cut the outside...

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...

Shop #3: Workbench

01-14-2011 03:55 PM by Big Ben | 25 comments »

My old bench was just not cutting it. Not sturdy enough for using hand planes, could not store other large tools, it was too low (I am 6’7”) and it was just not cool. From Woodworking For my new bench I choose to use Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) for the top and Douglas Fir for the legs. Here are some of the other choices I made for the bench: From Woodworking Legs – Co planer with top, 5.25” x 5” x 39” with Mortise and Tenon joints that will be pegge...
