Sawbench Notes

03-28-2016 01:24 AM by Alan | 0 comments »

Like my previous post, this is mostly a note for my own future reference. I’m trying to centralize all my woodworking notes in one place, preferably one accessible from anywhere, and LJ is the only logical choice. So I have some unusual needs in a sawbench. Since I am an above-knee amputee, the conventional method of holding the board in place with ‘pot roast power’ is a no-go.

I did not feel like making the top out of any premium lumber which i...

When I complete this I am going to build and fabricate car stereo and interior panels, enclosure, and a custom console for his cherry 67 Camaro. This bench/table should be great for woodworking. The pictures show my progress at the end of the third day. I included plenty of storage with deep cabi...
