dphmeyer's Workshop    


Portland, OR
United States

I just completed my woodworking bench, working on and off for a year. It’s simple but I had the notion that hand tools were the best tools but really, I just enjoy making things. It’s based on Paul Seller’s bench but with hardware instead of mortise and tenon joints for the legs.

I may make another bench in not too many years, allowing myself to not be as strict with hand tools (planing that many boards took a really long time).

I have a band saw, tool cart, a ryobi conglomaration of 18v+ tools and a circular saw with a guide. Smaller project plans include a desk caddy, an under desk storage, kubb set, and potentially an old fashioned writing desk. I also build stuff when my wife asks me to.

Thanks!

Posting this picture makes me realize how much my garage needs paint and trim around that window.
