Moravian Workbench #8: Installing the drawer

09-22-2019 03:43 PM by Tom | 1 comment »

The drawer will hang from the underside of the oak workbench top and it will extend out under the tool tray. I set the drawer back about 1” from the front of the bench so as to have some clamping surface available without removing the drawer. Since the top is 14” deep, that allows for about 13” of drawer runner mounted to the under side of the top. The drawer is 18” long, so it will extend under the tool tray by about 5-6 inches without support. I don’t think...

I was fortunate to get the opportunity to take a class at Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School to build a portable Moravian workbench. The class instructor is Will Myers along with Roy Underhill. Will is wonderful and patient teacher and demonstrates many hand tool woodworking techniques. The class is 5 full days of hand tool heaven. There is a material fee which includes all the wood needed to build a complete workbench including a Lake Erie vise screw and hand made vise...

Matching Wood Stain & Finish (using a new generation of stains)

07-28-2019 01:45 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

I learned a lot from a professional finisher recently when he taught me how to match stains and finishes for this project. I had a customer bring me a broken part and wanted me to make a replacement to match. The woodworking was the easy part for me – the finish was the hard part. My wood finisher has been in his field for decades and he didn’t want me to pursue finishing from the “old ways”, but taught me using the new generation of finishes using acrylics. This...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #14: Stanley #45 Chest

06-08-2019 01:17 AM by Bill Berklich | 5 comments »

Like many LJ’ers I’ve felt the tug of vintage hand tools. I discovered and acquired a Stanley #45 almost complete for a very reasonable price and got it mostly cleaned and sharpened and it’s been laid out on a side bench. Finally found time to make a chest. I wanted to make a chest similar to the original ones with finger joints. So to get started I made a simple box joint jig. Then I thicknessed Red Oak stock to 1/2” for the sides/ends/top and I also th...

How to Replace Broken Chair Stretchers

04-17-2019 12:53 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

I documented how I go about replacing broken or missing chair stretchers. This may seem challenging, but once you see how it’s done, it will be less intimidating. This video shows measuring, cutting, joinery, staining, and assembly details. Let me know what you think. I also show my lumber storage solution for shorts… I hope that’s helpful too! https://youtu.be/2k2rUCF-6iI

Arts and Crafts Dresser #11: Wrap it up

03-31-2019 05:41 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 5 comments »

Long fun project. The final steps were four coats of Osmo rubbed out with #0000 and woollube after coat 3. For a modified Arts and Crafts design, I like it. If fits the intended space and use and works with some of my existing period pieces. I won’t go into the design details as they are included early on in the build series. There are a few finish defects that I will scrape and touch up, but nothing dramatic. The top will not be attached until it is in-place (heavy enough...

PITA - chip out

02-27-2019 03:05 PM by slydog | 6 comments »

I’ve posted previously on building dartboards. I’m in the process of doing another. I just wanted share a misery piece – maybe someone has some thoughts on how to prevent it. I was building the door panels and routing the edges when as I routed across the end grain, the bit must have caught and chipped out interior edge – talk about a bad day!!!! I couldn’t see anyway to correct it so It became a member of the scrap bin (I so hate wasting red-oak).
