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...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #2: My first workbench build: The Legs and Rails

07-26-2019 02:08 PM by siggykc | 3 comments »

Okey-dokey, Please, do bear with me folks. I posted my next entry accidentally as a comment….whoops! I’ll see if i can delete it and re-post it here as I’m meant to. Legs: Wooh! Who doesn’t like a good set of pins! The leg construction is all mortise and tenon. The Benchcrafted Tail Vise requires a certain amount of space between leg and the edge of the bench top to accommodate the mechanism.I had seen other people with shorter benches bore a hole for th...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #1: My first workbench build: Background

07-25-2019 10:08 PM by siggykc | 3 comments »

Hi all, I’m new to this forum, and have been finding it a great resource in general. I figured I should contribute a little bit to it. So here it goes, my first workbench – a MINI ROUBO!(You can find it on my Instagram under Siggykc) I know “Why not go the full hog and build a full sized Roubo??” This is just to put it into context, as I simply lack the space to house a full sized Roubo workbench. I am an average bloke (I work in the city) living in a small flat ...

Building a Floating Mirror Frame from Walnut

07-19-2019 08:39 PM by BenhamDesign | 3 comments »

For this build the client wanted a custom walnut mirror frame built that would look like it is floating off the wall. To accomplish this I made an inset inner frame on the back to make it stand out.I wish I had a better picture of this but the lighting was subpar, along with my subpar photography skills, this is what I got. Watch me build this floating mirror Frame Video Recap Mirror ScriptToday I’m building this mirror frame for a client that wanted it to appear like it was floati...

Shop stuff #161: Roubo vise completed

06-06-2019 04:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I built and installed the anti-racking device for the vise. I went kind of old school on it. It was easier than I thought. A couple of mortises, some holes and away we go. Now that the vise is functional it will soon be time to get into the final details of getting it all glued up and completed.

Shop stuff #159: The Roubo bench's vise chop

05-28-2019 01:21 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Busy times around here. Not much time making or editing though. It always seems that spring brings more things to do than time to do them in. I did finally get around to edit one though. I go through the process of figuring out and making the chop for the vise. Not quite a complete vise yet but I didn’t want to drag the video out too long. It is complete and that will be featured in the next one. Naturally, I go through some detail in the build. A friend has called me the “...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #6: Details And Bringing It Together!

04-16-2019 06:01 PM by Jason1974 | 12 comments »

This is my favorite part of the build! The Details… I have been thinking about how I wanted to do the detail on the dash. I think I did a pretty good job. It’s amazing to much things slow down when you are getting to the end of the build. It’s also the scariest hoping everything fits together and looks good. ....................................Thanks For Watching!!!

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #4: Side & Back Panels

04-12-2019 11:24 AM by Jason1974 | 10 comments »

Here’s another update for you guys. I used a 1/16” straight router bit for the kerfs and I made a template for making the kerfs for the doors and windows. I am going to put the gas cap in a different location. I want my model to have different features than T&J’s.........................Thanks for watching!

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #3: The Seats

04-10-2019 11:16 AM by Jason1974 | 11 comments »

Here is my version of the seats for the Hummer. Instead of making it out of one piece of wood, I divided it into 4 sections and placed a 1/8” roundover on the sides and glued them back together. The seats are made out of Walnut. I got the idea from the seats from Dutchy’s Buick build. I like that design in the seats.........................Thanks for watching!
