Workbench additions and accesories #1: Where to place Your Bench Dogs

04-07-2020 01:13 AM by Dimensions | 1 comment »

So i Finally did it!!! I drilled the dog holes in my Hybrid Roubo/ Nicholson Workbench. i held off on this for far too long because i didn’t want to ruin the bench that i put so much work into by drilling holes in the wrong place. I watched as many videos as i could find ( there weren’t many) and read as much as i could find on this topic. With this being my first “real” bench i didnt have any prior experience with where the dog holes should be placed. I finally came u...

Workbench #2: vise handle, bench dogs, and legs

02-05-2013 06:00 PM by yuridichesky | 8 comments »

Not much progress since last time, but still some. First of all, I made my wagon vise a handle. It’s been cut from raw oak stock that I took from my country house almost two years ago. I started with planing it to be a square, then to be octagonal, then I doubled number of edges yet more couple of times, and finished with some very light sanding. To make end knobs I used my poor man’s lathe: Time after time I use it to turn knobs, handles and such: And here is my ...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #11: 2nd End Cap and Dog Holes

08-16-2012 02:38 PM by Mauricio | 32 comments »

Here is a short update of just my work last night. Laid out and drilled my row of dog holes 3” apart. Sorry, galoot index is Zero on this one. I used a ¾” spade bit to make the wholes. Let me just say that I think spade bits are underrated. If you don’t need to make a flat bottom hole or drill overlapping holes I like them better than Forstner bits. The spade bit leaves a pretty clean entry whole and cut pretty fast with a lot less effort IMHO. Drilled out for the second end C...

Workbench #2: Wrapping it up

04-14-2012 10:25 PM by David Craig | 6 comments »

Had a rough for for a couple months will little time in the shop. Some for obvious reasons, the rest mostly due to work. I know my voice has been out there in the forums, but the majority of the posts are done from my work computer as adverse to the home computer. I finished flattening the top of the bench and added dog holes for the hold fasts and the bench dogs. The top has been especially challenging due to the space in my shop. I don’t like working in tight spaces. I have about a...

Workbench #13: Tail Vise Is Complete

10-19-2011 01:31 AM by CartersWhittling | 20 comments »

Hello. I have now finished the tail vise, and today I had acually started work on the base. After I had got the dovetails for the tailvise fit and the pins on the guide rod I cut out the place for the pins to be inserted in the vise assembly. I then started work on getting the notches cut in the guide blocks for the sliding parts. Here you can see the guide rod in place, with the one guide block attached to the end cap with a notch for the guide rod to slide through aswell as a small notch...

Workbench addition

02-16-2011 11:07 PM by joshtank | 2 comments »

I made my workbench a while back (link – I specifically made the undercarriage of it ready to go for bench dogs. All was well, except they are expensive. So I did this: The stop pieces hang off the edge so I can pull them out easily. I made a few of them, some aren’t very tall so they don’t get in the way when I’m sanding and hand planing boards. I’ve had this set up f...
