American flag bench #4: Torched the slats then sanded them down to 320 grit. Stained the red stripes

11-20-2018 07:38 PM by Dubbs | 0 comments »

So I torched the slats in an attempt to make it look more rustic. Sanded them down to 320 grit. I found the poplar sort of burns blotchy or I’m just not too good at it yet. Had Hoe Depot mix up some blue and red stain for me. ($32) Also picked up oil based spa urethane high gloss (expensive.. but I told worth it.)I was able to get the union marked and taped and stained the red stripes! I think it came out pretty good. Cant wait to lay out the star stickers for the union. to b...

Shop Upgrades #1: MFT 3 Powertool Workbench

02-05-2018 04:57 PM by MatthewTruax | 3 comments »

Hi all! I’ve been designing this workbench in my head for quite some time. Over this past weekend, I was able to finish milling the frame/structure of the workbench and complete the glue up. I used the Domino XL 700 and installed twin tenons (loose tenons) in all joints of the frame. I know some of you will be astonished that I’m using this walnut for a workbench, but if you look at my completed projects, you will see that this will match my Roubo workbench and lets be hones...

Bench Surgery

08-20-2017 12:05 AM by Timmy2Hands | 3 comments »

I’m waiting on some finish to cure on one project and preparing to start on an upcoming tabletop, so I decided that today is a good day for some maintenance. It’s been two years since i did the initial flattening on this bench and it’s also looking pretty dingy. With a table next on the project list I need the benchtop as flat as possible. Let’s get to it. Most of the work I do on this bench is with relatively small parts so overall flatness is not a big conce...

Mongo: my first real workbench #8: Joinery: working out the legs

05-10-2017 02:58 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

Mongo’s legs are by far the most complex pieces, except perhaps the vices. They are responsible, obviously, for holding up the table surface but also for tying in the aprons and supporting the lower shelf. Clearances have to be made for the outermost ribs and bonus: there are no 90° cuts! Yay! But this is why I made the gauge in update 6 and it was used extensively. First step was to establish the top of the tenon at the correct angle. This is a through cut but I don’t have ...

Mongo: my first real workbench #6: The right tools for the job... even if you have to make them.

04-12-2017 06:45 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

I’m a big believer in having the right tools for the job; I’m a process engineer by trade and in my experience the analysis of any given task/process invariably reveals a substandard or nonexistent tool for completion… this bench is no exception. When my attention turned to laying lines for the legs and aprons where 90° was no longer my reference point, I realized I was going to be relying on angle/miter gauges for accurate layout. As I mentioned before, I’ve never ...
