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...

Multi-Function Work Bench

06-10-2020 02:44 AM by RPhillips | 0 comments »

Well, this is my second attempt at a blog. I posted one back some time ago for my Roubo Bench build but I didn’t really have the time to keep up with it. Due to the infamous COVID-19, I am now unemployed and have a lot of time on my hands to begin my journey deeper into woodworking. In the past I have always wanted to develop my skills and become an avid woodworker, but have not had the time or resources available to really pursue any advancement of my skills. While the resources ar...

bandsaw mobile base #1: -grizzly g0513x2bf

03-13-2019 01:11 AM by pneufab | 2 comments »

Thanks to my loving wife, I’m finally getting a bandsaw! After a little research I landed on the grizzly g0513×2bf. I was planning on ordering the base for a reasonable $75 or so, but before I added that to my cart, I checked my material and had just enough 2×3 angle iron around to make a base. A few cheap casters and some salvaged plate and another base is born. I have about $25 into this one. If you have any questions, let me know. Thanks for looking.

My Mobile Assembly/Outfeed Table and First Video

01-15-2018 04:11 AM by YesHaveSome | 2 comments »

I had always wanted to get into woodworking and video. For woodworking, space/time/money was always the big roadblocks for me. For video, I didnt really know have anything I wanted to shoot. When I got into woodworking in the beginning of 2017 I figured the two paired nicely. I’ve been in the website/digital industry for the past 10 years and also have a background as a CAD jockey. Woodworking, plans, video and website all seem to go together quite nicely so I figured I’d start a ...

Fliptop Tool Stand Video

10-01-2015 05:16 PM by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and because the house I live in is a rental and only temporary, I can’t build cabinets like I’d like and or don’t want to put in the effort to build something that I’ll just have to remove and take apart whe...

Mobile Table Saw Stand

02-20-2014 06:07 PM by MadWT | 3 comments »

OK, So i am new here to LJ and i am excited to post new and exciting things this to get all sorts of feedback. I recently upgraded my hitachi table saw by installing the Vega Pro 50 Fence system! Its huge! The 40 would have been plenty, but for what i paid ($275) it was much cheaper than the 40 that i could find and i have the room for it so i figured what the heck! :). I took the wings off the saw becasue they were pretty much worthless and the stamped steel legs make for a pretty flim...

Sawstop Contractor Mobile Base for 36" T-Glide Rails

01-06-2014 03:04 AM by Sk1pp3r | 10 comments »

So here it is. I am basing this project on one several other talented individuals have done. They include, but are not limited to, Zzzzdoc, Tedth66, and Spencer. I only have the rough outline right now but plan on cutting wood this week. I have the mobile base on 4” swiveling castors. I matched the drawer base to the same height as the original base minus 4 inches for the casters. I made the base 28×68.5 and recessed the cabinet one inch all around so once the drawer fron...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #9: Overall impressions of my Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench

01-05-2014 09:52 PM by Garry | 4 comments »

I have to say I’m very pleased with the UHWB. I started work on it a few months ago and it’s been usable for the last month and a half. These last two weeks on Christmas vacation gave me time to really focus and get it finished. After way too many years of makeshift garage workshops in rented houses, it feels great to have an organized workspace that I know I can take with me almost anywhere. I built a small bookcase for my wife’s craft room and it went very smoothly. Her...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #8: Final details for the UMWW

01-04-2014 08:47 PM by Garry | 1 comment »

Shims were cut to raise the table to ~1/16” below the tablesaw surface. Because of the gap required by the tablesaw fence, I sanded a shallow angle on the leading edge of the table to ensure work will slide smoothly onto the surface. My Bosch router table is 27” wide, the same dimension as the depth of the tablesaw. I drilled four holes in the fence rails and mounted it in a similar method. Then built a cabinet to fit under it and shimmed it as needed. I made...
