Workshop build out #3: New Workbench, stage 2 started

06-16-2021 12:14 PM by Savlaka | 1 comment »

Stage 2 of my workbench project is to install storage under the main bench.I’m putting 7 drawers and a few shelves in place under the main bench, between the legs of the stand.The front face of the frame is made from jabota (Brazilian cherry) and the drawer faces are the same. The front frame is a mix of lap joints and mortis and tenion joints. The drawers sides are pine, and plywood, the bottoms are 5mm plywood. Construction of the drawers is simple screws with a f...

Workshop build out #2: New Workbench, stage 1 completion

05-04-2021 11:44 AM by Savlaka | 1 comment »

So I’ve gotten around to finishing up the first stage of my new workbench.I decided to use fitted runners on the bottom of the table that fit slots in the frame as my alignment and securing method… This allows me to remove the top with a little effort but keeps it in place while the bench is used. Here I am attaching the 3/4×1 alignment runners, I used 5/16” dowels and glue for this. You can also see the rails used to hold the plywood bottom into the tool tray, And the Har...

Moravian inspired workbench for the son - recycled wood

04-26-2021 01:55 PM by Sylvain | 3 comments »

The pic-nick table in the garden had some rotten board, so my wife wanted a new one. I don’t like to have to do things for the day before yesterday, so we bought a new one. But, that was a great opportunity to recycle the old pic-nick bench. So I offered to the son to make him a Moravian workbench, pointing that:- it was easily knock down and wouldn’t eat much space in his house;- he could use it as a buffet table when doing a garden party.I don’t know if his wife would ...

Workshop build out #1: New Workbench, stage 1

04-26-2021 11:56 AM by Savlaka | 1 comment »

I’m building my new workbench, this project is being done in a few stages. The first is the primary bench top and legs.This new bench is being made from various wood types. The top is decking “shorts” from my local H/W lumber yard – these are a mix of Ipe, Cumaru, tigerwood, ETC. The outer edge is Brazilian cherry (jabota). I’m making it 2” thick, which I’ve found is more than enough for my uses. The top is laminated from strips cut from those deck...

Bench slave, board Jack, dead man (blog)

04-09-2021 04:46 PM by mafe | 9 comments »

Bench slaveboard Jack, dead man. From time to time we could all need a helper, but luckily the slavery is over, so we will go for a dead man… naaaaa that’s too morbid, well a board Jack then, somehow that must be the most political correct name these days, but I do like the sound of a bench slave, it’s kind of a mix between pirates and SM, laughs. I got tired of putting stuff under my boards when planing, so it was time to look into history, to make my self a helper. I actually made a b...

My Woodworking Journey #3: Completing My Workbench with Storage Drawers

01-29-2021 09:38 AM by Gerald Etto | 4 comments »

In my previous post, I talked about creating a compact workbench to enjoy woodworking from my apartment. In the past week, I managed to complete it by adding storage drawers. I don’t really have much experience building cabinets, so I took a different approach. I build the drawers how I made my boxes, with miter joints. The tricky part was getting the drawer measurements right. I made the drawer fronts from Southern Yellow Pine and the drawer pulls from Acasia to match the rest of...

Just starting out...

01-04-2021 06:56 PM by Shout19 | 4 comments »

I’ve been reviewing all of the great work that everyone has posted on Lumberjocks, and I’m impressed! I have been dabbling for many years, and have recently begun building out a formal workshop. I have LOTS to learn, and look forward to sharing some of my projects here. As a “learning project”, I decided to use a bunch of scrap lumber to build a mobile work table for the workshop. It has three drawers (built from scratch), six cabinet doors (those I already had),...

My Woodworking Journey #2: Building a Second Workshop on My Balcony

12-17-2020 11:20 PM by Gerald Etto | 1 comment »

When COVID hit, I knew things had to change. I used to run my own IT company for a good 8 years. When the business went down the drain, I had scaled everything down and let everyone go. Working by myself in a large area, I started woodturning and eventually woodworking, collecting stuff every month. Soon, my “IT office” on the third floor had a makeshift workshop with a lathe, table saw, drill press, a workbench, belt sander, and a whole lot of other tools. I kept paying th...

Finally, a Workbench Drawer

10-26-2020 07:12 PM by Tom | 4 comments »

When I built my joinery workbench about 2-1/2 years ago, I had always planned to add a workbench drawer. but I could never quite get around to doing. In fact, I built a whole other Moravian workbench and added a drawer to that before I finally got to the drawer on my joinery workbench. I am between projects at the moment and I finally committed to making the drawer. I am not sure if most woodworkers would like to have a workbench drawer, but I think it’s great if you use hand tool...

Schwarz Workbench #1: Selecting and drying Douglas Fir

09-10-2020 02:49 PM by Paul Lewer | 5 comments »

Though I am an aspiring woodworker, I seriously doubt the thrill of cutting into fresh boards will ever get old. Ripping through clear, tight-grained Douglas Fir is a thrill! Chris Schwarz’s free ebook, The Anarchist’s Workbench, couldn’t have come at a better time. I had just decided that I could get into woodworking as a hobby after all. With no garage and just a 10’x16’ shed for storing everything you’d normally find in a garage, there was just no way...
