Making Figured Maple Wainscot for a restaurant

09-12-2019 02:36 AM by Steve | 1 comment »

Over the summer one of my instrument building customers told me he bought a restaurant. It seemed out of the blue but I wished him well. Then I realized that he was not telling me this coincidentally. Rather, he wanted the restaurant’s interior to pay homage to the exotic instrument woods he uses to build guitars. I invited him out to the warehouse to take a walk and see if something inspires him. Unfortunately, there were some limitations. Not the least of which w...

Shop stuff #170: Some drawers for the vanity.

09-08-2019 12:50 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

One of those projects that got put to the side while other things were going on. The bathroom renovation I started last year is still not complete, but every now and then I get a bit of time to do a bit more on it. Earlier this summer I found a few days to get the drawers done for the vanity build. I milled up the wood from maple for the sides, used plywood for the bottom, and of course, used cedar for the fronts to go with the cedar cabinet. I also cut the centre panel from the same boar...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #3: My first workbench build: Leg Vise - The beginnings

07-28-2019 10:31 PM by siggykc | 0 comments »

Gday all! So, whilst I was constructing the base of the bench, in parallel i had been keeping an eye out for folks selling interesting timber that I could incorporate into the bench.As i live in essentially a flat sized house, I dont have a huge stockpile of timber and just acquire it as I go.I came across a bloke who had an old hard maple bowling alley that he had ripped up. After close inspection, i figured it wasn’t the ideal thing to incorporate into the bench, but he had a shipp...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #2: My first workbench build: The Legs and Rails

07-26-2019 02:08 PM by siggykc | 3 comments »

Okey-dokey, Please, do bear with me folks. I posted my next entry accidentally as a comment….whoops! I’ll see if i can delete it and re-post it here as I’m meant to. Legs: Wooh! Who doesn’t like a good set of pins! The leg construction is all mortise and tenon. The Benchcrafted Tail Vise requires a certain amount of space between leg and the edge of the bench top to accommodate the mechanism.I had seen other people with shorter benches bore a hole for th...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #1: My first workbench build: Background

07-25-2019 10:08 PM by siggykc | 3 comments »

Hi all, I’m new to this forum, and have been finding it a great resource in general. I figured I should contribute a little bit to it. So here it goes, my first workbench – a MINI ROUBO!(You can find it on my Instagram under Siggykc) I know “Why not go the full hog and build a full sized Roubo??” This is just to put it into context, as I simply lack the space to house a full sized Roubo workbench. I am an average bloke (I work in the city) living in a small flat ...

Shop stuff #161: Roubo vise completed

06-06-2019 04:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I built and installed the anti-racking device for the vise. I went kind of old school on it. It was easier than I thought. A couple of mortises, some holes and away we go. Now that the vise is functional it will soon be time to get into the final details of getting it all glued up and completed.

Wood stabilizing #7: Memorial Day spalted birch and maple

06-02-2019 12:04 AM by Dave Polaschek | 7 comments »

Over Memorial Day weekend, I stabilized some more wood. I had some eucalyptus from Arizona that a co-worker wanted stabilized. I forgot to take pictures of it before giving it to him, but with a wood as hard as that eucalyptus is, most of what you accomplish by stabilizing it with cactus juice is filling voids. But it’s also brittle, and we were hoping it would be more workable after stabilizing. I’ll update when I hear more about that. I also did some spalted birch, which was about as lig...

Shop stuff #159: The Roubo bench's vise chop

05-28-2019 01:21 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Busy times around here. Not much time making or editing though. It always seems that spring brings more things to do than time to do them in. I did finally get around to edit one though. I go through the process of figuring out and making the chop for the vise. Not quite a complete vise yet but I didn’t want to drag the video out too long. It is complete and that will be featured in the next one. Naturally, I go through some detail in the build. A friend has called me the “...

Shop stuff #158: Roubo bench part 12...Veering away from tradition with the long stretchers

05-10-2019 12:14 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Back to the bench build. This time I am putting the long stretchers on the base. I am also taking the path less travelled and making the bench my own by doing the joinery a bit different. I wanted to continue on with making the bench my own creation, while still respecting the overall form and function. View on YouTube
