Miniature Bench #2: Legs with Feet and Mortises for Clamping to Main Workbench

02-03-2016 04:05 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

LEGS CONTINUED.. My next steps were to make the legs for this mini bench. I had already glued the two plywood sheets together. I also had my cherry hardwood parts ready. I used a marking knife to define the the grooves I would cut in order to fit the plywood stretchers. The grooves would be very shallow, but enough to align the stretchers. I used a DADO setup to cut the grooves. I used test pieces first to define the depth. When I was satisfied with the saw blade depth setting I cut...

With my sore back, I needed a solution when working at my workbench. Clamping a mini-bench seems like a good step to take.

[Moxon Mini-bench] For sooth, mine bench completeth well.

Jumping back in to the icebox, I mean shop, I finished up the Moxon mini-bench today and am well pleased. First order of business was to get the poplar nut-housings cut and chopped so I can make the handles for the threaded rods like on my leg vise. These are about half the size of the leg vise hardware so it went a lot faster. Especially because I could take the mini-bench (as it is) in the house where it’s warm and hack out the holes without worrying about damaging furniture! I ...
