Router Table Upgrade

02-04-2019 11:54 AM by Matt Snyder | 3 comments »

When I built my workbench I made a folding table, hinged to my workbench wall, that I envisioned holding my fancy Bosch router table. In practice it felt awkward with the table so high and it also blocked the cabinet behind it. Time for a new plan. I took the mounting plate off the commercial table and traced it out on the center of the table. An inch in from the line I used a jigsaw to cut out a hole for the router and base to hang through. I then used a router guide to rout ou...

My Folding Workbench

01-28-2019 10:49 PM by Matt Snyder | 4 comments »

I’ve got a small wood shop I’ve been building up in my small 14’ x 20’ garage. After picking up a bunch of tools, I realized I needed a better work space than my table saw. In order to conserve precious space, I decided to go with a folding design. In looking for a place to put it, I decided to use the dead air above the steps to the basement. The first task was to frame in the tool and wood storage area. For the doors I planed down some 2×4s and mitered the ends. I made th...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #1: Building the Lower Frame

05-11-2015 07:00 PM by DustyMark | 7 comments »

The Requirement I moved back to MN in June 2014, after nearly 30 years away, and my brother quickly introduced me to duck hunting. We’re not on any of the major flyways here, so we need to put everything in our favor possible. We read about the advantages of layout boats in providing maximum concealment from wary ducks and talked about it in the duck blind all last season. Our hunting party consists of my brother, my nephew, and me and we decided to build three one-man layout boat...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #7: Remainder of yellow pine lumber for workbench

03-04-2015 06:38 PM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Here is the remainder of the yellow pine that I need for my workbench. I had decided to give this thing legs and a skirt (hmm, sounds bad I know – hey maybe it’s a Scottish bench? LOL). The 2 X 12 was for the skirts on the front and the back, and the 2 X 8’s were for leg stretchers. I had 6 pieces of center ripped 2 X 10’s left over from making the top that I could use to make the legs. Still deciding whether to make a regular workbench or stay with my original plan of...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #5: Getting Close to Full Width

02-22-2015 02:53 PM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

I ended up gluing inside my apartment where it was warmer. Ice and snowoutside. It is wide enough now that it won’t fit inside the glue box anyway. All 12 boards glued up. I think that I will add 2 more to make it 21” wide. Finally got a decent picture of all 14 boards glued up. Now to find help carrying it down to the garage when the weather turns nicer. It weighs over a hundred pounds. Not bad.

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #4: Glue Curing Box

02-17-2015 09:19 PM by ruddhess | 5 comments »

Here is what I did yesterday: made a long box to keep the wood and glue warm while curing. Everything I needed was laying close at hand – literally! I had four old closet doors that I used as shelves a long time ago that were standing in the corner. I had used a couple of them as a flat work place to start gluing up the boards for my slab. I found 8 little metal angle braces with screws that I had bought a while back and never used. It is 78” long (my 72” boards fit j...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #3: Glueing up pairs of boards and then glueing up quads

02-17-2015 02:44 AM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

This is the first two boards glued together the night before this picture. I have taken the bolts out and everything looks solid. Time will tell. This first one was probably the worst for glue coverage as I was in a hurry – it has been too long since I glued boards together. I keep thinking that if I didn’t hurry, the glue would set up and I’d have to do everything over again. But I think it will still be OK. I used plenty of glue on both sides and the only part I’...
