Shop stuff #192: Part 5 of the potato bin build

06-28-2020 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have not had a lot of time for editing. The project has been done and delivered for a while now, it’s just finding the time to get the videos out. This one goes through milling up a few parts and getting the main carcass put together. There are a few tips on keeping things square and easing the glue up. Sit back and enjoy! https://youtu.be/heIxxFWf5EQ

African Rosewood, Leadwood and Maple Workbench build #3: DIY Hardwood Leg Vice Screw

06-25-2020 01:01 PM by carrera4s | 0 comments »

I have finished the screw for my workbench. The screw is made from leadwood (an indigenous South African Hardwood), the handle from maple and the handle knobs from African Rosewood. The diameter of the screw is 64 mm (around 2 1/2 inches), the hub is around 125 mm (5”), the handle is about 30 mm (c 1 1/4”). Overall length is 640 mm (just under 26 inches). The No 4 Stanley is added for scale. I had to build one custom jig for the internal threads and another router lathe for...

African Rosewood, Leadwood and Maple Workbench build #2: DIY Castors for Heavy Bench - Video

06-13-2020 07:51 AM by carrera4s | 1 comment »

I hope that my workbench will be c 150 – 200 kg (330 – 440 pounds) when it is done so that it can stand still for any conceived hand tool operation. (My current Festool type Mobile MFT Cart is way too rickety – the whole thing shakes when I use even a small block plane). However, I also want it mobile, so it must have retractable castors. Christopher Schwartz reckons that the available commercial systems are too small, so he recommends not to add any castors. But I am a...

African Rosewood, Leadwood and Maple Workbench build #1: Workbench Base Finished

06-12-2020 09:14 AM by carrera4s | 2 comments »

I am busy building a split top Roubo workbench and have recently finished the base. The base is built from some left-over African Rosewood I had, while the top will be Hard Maple. The vices and sliding deadman will be made from Leadwood. Next up is installing some retractable castors and then the DIY screw for the leg and wagon vices. Stay tuned for those updates! Here are a few pictures of the process so far. Glue-up on the laminated legs: Squaring up the legs after lamina...

Getting the side panels finished up. Also giving suggestions on alternative things you may want to do as I go along. Yup, it’s fancier than need be for its intended purpose, but hey, why not? I’m enjoying the process. https://youtu.be/MBg7jzwOMgU

Shop stuff #187: Starting a new build

04-25-2020 03:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Last winter I started a new build. It’s still not done yet, but I am starting to put out the videos on it. I am doing a larger series on this one, breaking it into several digestible parts so I can include lots of detail. My aim is to make any woodworker able to build this project by watching the videos. I also mention optional ways of doing things when I can. It is a 3 drawer root vegetable storage unit. But I am making it pretty fancy. It’s going into a home that is a bit...

Workbench #4: Finishing touches

04-08-2020 07:23 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

I’m on forced vacation this week, so I’ve been able to get a lot done, between bike riding with my daughter and the honey do list, and I’m basically finished with the workbench. The stock for the deadman guide Needed to be straightened out, so I used my tail vise again, and glued it in place. The slot for the deadman was routed in the top, and I flipped the shape of the chop to make the deadman. Next everything was disassembled and given a quick coat of ...

Workbench #3: Top and Chop

04-04-2020 01:11 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

With the Michigan shelter in place order, I’m making good progress on the work bench. The mortises for the legs are cut. I had to borrow a T50 Torx bit to install the knock down hardware to hop the top in place. These bolts are top quality and no issues with them. Hardest part about this step was crawling around on the floor. Next up was final shaping the Chop/Leg Vise. I didn’t have a thick enough piece of maple, so I laminated a piece of cherry to the front and cut t...
