Building a roubo workbench in my apartment #1: Making the top

1606 days ago by brklnguy | 26 comments »

I never want to hear anyone complain about their shop… anything has to be better than a tiny living room in a 400sqft apartment. This is my first project with hand tools. I worked as a cabinetmaker for 6 years, and then moved to NYC 3 years ago and changed careers. I’ve been wanting to get back into building furniture, and after a few months of reading everything Chris Schwartz has written and pretty much every other hand tool blog on the internet, I feel like I know everything...

Harry's new router table and fence design #1: Novel approach to make a cutout for your router lift.

781 days ago by TheHarr | 5 comments »

I picked up a Jessem FX II router lift a couple of years ago and finally found time to make my 4th router table. This time I took a novel approach to make the cutout using the template as a support frame to increase the thickness of the plywood to 1 1/2”. The 2nd part of this blog illustrates how I made an adjustable fence using 1/2” screws. This is an awesome design that uses epoxy so no welding is needed. My neighbor likes to take pictures for me so instead of writing a no...

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #1: Columbian Woodworking Vise Find

872 days ago by hhhopks | 3 comments »

I just got back from a woodworking tool estate sale. There were many good buys. I would of purchase a lot more but ran out of money. I spotted this woodworking vise and noticed that it is a quick release. I already got an old vice for the workbench that I am currently building, but it is not a quick release. I thought I would give it a go. I am taking a chance in buying a vise that wouldn’t turn. For $25.00, I don’t think it is much of a gamble. Here’s what I have foun...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #3: Re-painting the plane body

1276 days ago by Dan | 4 comments »

Its been a little bit since I have added to this series but I have been very busy as of late. This blog will focus on re-painting the plane body and frog. This is one thing that I usually skip over when restoring planes. Most of the planes I have restored still had pretty decent japanning and showed only minor chipping and wear. That is fine with me, especially if I am going to be using them. However I have restored planes where the japanning was so damaged that I felt they needed a new pa...
