  1. Sliding Deadman

    So to add even more work holding options to my hybrid roubo/nicholson workbench i decided to add a deadman. It comes in handy, especially when working with longer stock. Its a pretty cheap and quick way to upgrade your bench to give you a few more options. if you want to check out the entire...
  2. Hybrid Nicholson/Roubo Workbench

    So i've been wanting to build this bench for quite a while now. As i progress in my woodworking journey i find myself gravitating more and more towards hand tools and hand cut joinery. So i decided i needed to build my first "real bench" I did a lot of research and settled on this design from...
  3. English-Style Workbench

    Here is my completed (almost) English style woodworking bench. It's southern yellow pine with walnut dowels (Miller 2X) finished with boiled linseed oil. The top is 2.5 inches thick. It weighs a ton and it's rock solid. I put virgin rubber treads (made from the soft material used under rugs...
  4. Routertable storage cabinet

    This has been one of those project that seem I would never ever get too until it was time to clean out the shop area…so putting good use to all that left-over scrap I came up with this storage unit. Thanks to all the lumberjocks for their inspiration to final get to this storage unit…Blkcherry
  5. Nicholson Workbench

    I got into wookdworking about three years ago, and for the last two or so have become a dedicated hand tool user. I've been "making do" with a too-high garage counter and a Black and Decker Workmate for about two years now, and I've dreamed of a "real" bench but figured the materials alone were...
  6. Finished my 2x6 Paul Sellers Workbench

    Wow what a rewarding project. I had a week off work to work on it as often as I could physically handle. It ended up taking 2 weeks. Details:Spent $56 on the 2×6s from the store. $8 on the Danish oil. $150 on Jorgensen 41012. I splurged on the vise but I love it. Top is 5" thick. I...
  7. Knockdown English Style Workbench

    The latest project is a new dedicated workbench. This is based somewhat on the article in the latest issue (12/15) of Popular Woodworking. My version is 7' long (instead of the 6' in the article) and mine is taller, since I am taller than the editor :) It's basically an English Nicholson style...
  8. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    The Moods of a Woman An angel of truth and a dream of fiction, A woman is a bundle of contradiction, She's afraid of a wasp, will scream at a mouse, But will tackle a stranger alone in the house. Sour as vinegar, sweet as a rose, She'll kiss you one minute, then turn up her nose, She'll win you...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a huge collection of rasps and files of which the Nicholson #50 is definately one of the best (It's a tie with Auriou rasps from France) it took me a long time to purchase the #50 due to it's high price but eventually I found a deal and did. I never regreted that purchase and have since...
  10. Wood & Lumber
    So I am working on a Nicholson bench. I am using some lumber I got fairly cheap in a soft maple. The problem is both of my aprons are bowed down the length. One is bowed probably 1/8" and the other is probably 3/16-1/4" out over the 6' length. I was going to plane it down but I really don't want...
  11. Designing Woodworking Projects
    On a Nicholson style bench, made with dimensional/construction lumber… how do you keep the tops and aprons from 'Pringle-ing' aka cupping/bowing? It's not like you can really cut out just quarter-sawn area, not unless you want to rip and edge-glue a lot of thin strips? Very frustrating to have...
  12. Focus on the Workspace
    I'm new to hand tool work and recently moved to a home with a smaller shop in it - 16'x10'. So now I'm fighting which bench design do I think I'll want and after reading and reviewing countless articles, blogs, and videos I've realized many people don't say why they chose one form over another...
  13. Focus on the Workspace
    I'm looking at building a knockdown Nicholson bench after Chris Schwarz's design. One question is, how well does the benchtop retain 'flatness'. I'm new to hand tools and haven't built a sturdy workbench before. I've considered the usual designs (Moravian, Nicholson, Roubo). Frankly the...

    The Planning Phase What do I like and what else would a serious woodworker need in a bench The Plan was to build myself a workbench and then it was 2 benches as my uncle decided he needed a real workbench as well. I offered to build the bench if he purchased the wood. and I already have my two...

    Roehl Leg Vise [update: better pics on my personal blog] http://thewoodknack.blogspot.com/2014/11/unusual-early-20th-century-farm-leg-vise.html Posting this here so it doesn't get buried in the workbench thread. While perusing Google Books I ran across an unusual leg vise arrangement on a...

    Discount Nicholson bench and a new workshop... I've recently gotten the opportunity to rent some room near my home, where I can have a workshop that's not freezing cold or moist in the winter and very small - There is a catch though: If the owner finds someone who wants to rent the whole thing...

    Nicholson Workbench with Veritas Twin Screw Vise I just moved into a new home with enough room to finally build a dedicated 16' x 13' workshop which was a welcomed change from my small 6'x8' unpowered shed - especially during the frost Canadian winters. Seeing the price of lumber I decided to...
  18. Hand Tools
    I better start learning how to restore these planes, that's what! Over the last two days, I've gathered the tools shown below. All of the planes need work. I don't even know how to use one yet! :) I know what most of these tools are. :: Planes :: Stanley #7 Stanley #78 Stanley #220...
  19. Hand Tools
    Im not much of a ranting person but I want to share my little story here with the group. Ive been attempting to purchase files for sharpening hand saws and with the global supply of saw files at a minimum I turned to McMaster Carr after everyone else was out of stock. Now, ive never purchased...
  20. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am in the process of building four base cabinets for a wet bar project. I predrilled all of the holes for the Blumotion soft close hinges and had four of the six doors installed for test fit when it happened. A screw simply broke in two pieces just below the head! That about ruined my day...
