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...

Another Radial Arm Saw Rebuild

04-19-2020 10:59 PM by JimChrisawn | 9 comments »

Well I received, from a friend who’s dad passed away a few months ago, a box with a DeWalt 925 in pieces, some sanding, and taping done. His dad had started restoring it before he suddenly passed away. He didn’t want it as he isn’t a woodworker and since it was in pieces he couldn’t sell it. I found all the parts present (he later brought me the original table and cabinet another project for later) I sorted it out and set about finishing it up. I found the little saw h...

Shop Tool Projects #1: A Router Table with Rack and Pinion Linear Motion DRO Fence

02-01-2020 03:47 PM by teetomterrific | 5 comments »

It has been almost a year since I completed this shop tool build project so I’ve had some time to put this router table with rack and pinion linear motion DRO fence to use since I originally documented this build for posterity. It has worked out great in my shop and I’d have a tough time going backward and using my old router table now that I have this one. Teaser Video: ————————̵...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #4: My first workbench build- recycling offcuts for inlay

07-31-2019 12:00 PM by siggykc | 4 comments »

Gday-gday, I hope its warm and sunny for you all – a start contrast to the cold wet mornings in Melbourne as of recent! Due to the weather one evening after work, I was stuck at home with my small garage that is setup for some small metalworking jobs. Bored, I racked my brain for things to do. As you readers of this blog will know, the last thing I posted on was the leg vise, which is made predominantly out of quilted (big leaf?) maple.The bloke that sold me that quilted maple ...

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...

The Garage er workshop #1: She said I needed a hobby

12-19-2018 10:38 PM by Lyntonc | 1 comment »

It is rare that when one makes a suggestion to “her indoors” (who must be obeyed) that any poor guy will get what he wants. I had been thinking some time about how to occupy the approximately 2’6” by 4yards of space at the back of the garage and how, like a boatbuilder, to install as much into the small space as possible and I had planned a fine laser system to help my wife park the car in such a way as to provide a modus vivendi between wood, paint and a piece of German four wheeled engi...

Sculpting a little table with wings

07-26-2018 10:34 PM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

A little interesting shaped table. I did most of the curves on the table saw and my jack plane. It’s made from maple and the blue pigment may or may not be ground up Smurfs .If you’re interested in how I made it….. you can watch the video or read the recap below Now I realized that the shape of this little table may not be to everyone’s liking. When the client explained to me wanted I was even skeptical if I could build the thing. The shape of the top and lower shelf seemed like ...

New Shop Build #3: A solid foundation

04-26-2018 09:26 PM by Bikerdan | 3 comments »

Finally! After days of planning, waiting, questions, weather issues, more planning, and more waiting, it’s finally done! I have a foundation to build on! As you can probably tell, I’m really excited. There were a couple of changes I was able to squeeze in to the plan before the pour. I added a Ufer ground and ran conduit to an electrical cement floor box so I’ll have power ran to the middle of the room. I mostly plan on using that for my table saw and for running pow...

Shop Projects, how “Nice” should they be?

02-10-2018 05:56 AM by IantheTinker | 31 comments »

I am building an outfeed table for my table Saw, just a short one to extend over the outboard motor. Then I will hinge a folding table onto the end of the short one. I am doing this to save on dedicated space while allowing options for assembling s9me larger upcoming projects. My only issue is that I keep gett8ng hung up on how nice these things need to look. I see the guys on the YouTubes making these really nice outfeed table with melamine surfaces and oak trim and whatnot. I am on a seriou...
