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...

Santa's helpers and other elves.

12-15-2017 11:28 AM by EricTwice | 1 comment »

Things have gotten crazy here, but this is normal for the Christmas season. First we get the big projects that must be done before the holiday entertainment happens. (2 bathrooms, 5 kitchen modifications, 2 dining-room tables and repair a set of chairs) Next we have the special Christmas gifts, (a cane, a walking stick, a doll bed, 2 closets modified, a custom bench seat, and they keep coming in) Then there are the things my wife has asked me to make, (spoons, cutting boards, pen and...

This week in the shop: Project Paralysis

11-17-2017 03:49 AM by Woodbutchery | 1 comment »

So I’m working on Christmas presents and making progress on that, and I’ve finished several small projects that keep the wife happy and make living just a tiny bit easier. With all that productivity and project finishing, where does the paralysis come in? Four years ago, almost to the day, I received several board feet of what I thought was mahogany but might actually be sapele. It was my first (and so far only) wood gloat . It didn’t take me long to figure out what I ...

The Overhang Chair in Walnut

08-09-2017 11:37 PM by LeOmkr | 3 comments »

The basic structure of this chair draws Inspiration from the design of the iconic ‘Conoid Chair’ by the great japanese-american woodworker George Nakashima. Through progressive scaled models, design critique and study of human ergonomics the design of this chair is evolved from the basic concept of the nakashima chair. Made entirely in one slab of 4” thick walnut (type of a hardwood), I have also tried to stay true to nakashima’s philosophy of creating mini...
