Project Ideas, Hmm... #10: Workbench Vise Location

05-07-2019 01:43 PM by Dave Rutan | 10 comments »

In the next few weeks I’ll be building a small workbench to use at work. I’m currently using a fold-away table saw stand (not the table saw itself) with a sort of cradle to hold up double basses and cellos to perform certain repairs because it is lower than the high work table I typically use. I’ll be building a somewhat traditional style bench about 33 inches high. I want to put a vise on the face and one on the end to use with dog holes. The thing is, as I currently u...

Modified Paulk Workbench #1: Modification

04-27-2019 12:07 AM by gmaffPappy | 0 comments »

I need a good out-feed table for my table saw, a good assembly table, and just an overall mobile and functional table for the garage workshop, and found this design. It’s pretty popular and there are a lot of blogs out there with modifications, took some from here, and some from there, and this is what I want to build. I ordered the plans from Ron Paulk's website and started my plan. It will be 6’ long, not 8’. Size is dictated by the garage’s space. I’m n...

Workshop #1: Building a Proper Workbench

02-22-2019 07:38 AM by b1v1r | 6 comments »

I read stefang's recent blog on how to Improve Your Posts and it reminded me of my first post long ago and, unfortunately, my lack of posts since. I remembered how I was pleasantly surprised that people took the time to look (and comment) on just a silly screened door from a beginner and thought what a great community this could be. And then I promptly forgot to post anything else. Sigh. I can do better… I came into woodworking with a strong desire to build, but without a lot of equi...

My Folding Workbench

01-28-2019 10:49 PM by Matt Snyder | 4 comments »

I’ve got a small wood shop I’ve been building up in my small 14’ x 20’ garage. After picking up a bunch of tools, I realized I needed a better work space than my table saw. In order to conserve precious space, I decided to go with a folding design. In looking for a place to put it, I decided to use the dead air above the steps to the basement. The first task was to frame in the tool and wood storage area. For the doors I planed down some 2×4s and mitered the ends. I made th...

Treadle Lathe #5: Upright mortises and dry fitting the first through tenon

11-02-2018 01:24 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Today I began hogging out the four mortises on the 1st and 3rd uprights. Each mortise will house a through tenon attaching the two ways to the uprights (legs). The second upright attaches to the ways with a series of housings in which I discussed on the last post. Sticking with the hand-tool only approach., I drilled out each mortise with my brace and 1 inch auger bit from each side of the uprights then finished it off with a chisel. I’m really happy with the fit. Thanks for following m...

Amazing Workbench Build |Hand tool Woodworking

10-18-2018 04:41 PM by LastingBuild | 1 comment »

A few months ago, I posted pictures of my Paul Sellers Workbench and received a really big response. I linked it to my build series on youtube. The series is too long for most people to watch so I condensed it into 5 minutes (over 15 hours of video footage). I hope my video inspires others to build one of their own. This experience has changed my practice of woodworking forever.
