  1. Saw Benches

    These are small benches about 20" tall to make hand sawing easier. They also work great as step stools and shop seating. They are made from Doug Fir 2×10. The design is from Chris Schwarz, Lost Art Press. They stack to save space.
  2. Saw bench with integrated clamping

    This sawbench is only 18" tall which makes it perfect for sawing (crosscut or rip) and also serves double duty as my toddler's workbench. The rip slot down the middle also has a saddle to set in a 3' pipe clamp which can serve in a variety of ways. A couple of simple dovetails joints and a few...
  3. Shop Stool

    Here's my recent addition to the shop furniture: shop stool. Since I've got some serious space constraints in the shop the stool was designed to serve as a sitting stool, as a step stool so I can reach for upper shelves, and as a short saw bench for cross-cutting and for ripping (those holes in...
  4. Sawbench

    Made of redwood, constructed with hand tools, following Schwarz's design. To name a few of the veritable plethora of things i learned during this project: • Nothing is flat • Nothing is square • A new respect for things that appear simple • That i am a ridiculously slow woodworker, but very...
  5. Saw benches

    You can read more about the making of these on my blog. There are lots of ways to make saw benches but I wanted something that would stack easy for tight spaces and double for a seat. I also love the style and look over the A frame types. Although they my not look strong but so far I haven't had...
  6. Saw Bench

    I needed a saw bench. I've done most of my rough sawing by clamping to my workbench or table, then standing on a milk crate to get a little higher. That's not ideal because I'm not at the right height and I'm balancing on a milk crate… so I needed a saw bench. I like the looks of Tom Fidgeon's...
  7. 2 legged does-all

    So a married friend of mine said "you gota get your self a 2 legged does all" and I explained that's funny I've got one on the bench right now! I built this with some free and VERY twisted cheery. It's good looking old growth stuff that's was sitting in a barn for way to many years. I tend to...
  8. Begging Monkey Automata

    I used an old news paper pattern from 1920's for this. The motion is not as fluid as I would like (the original was designed to be made of paper, where mine is wood). When his tail is pushed down both hands and his head lift up. I also had to enlarge the head as the one in the original pattern...
  9. saw bench and a few saw handles

    I made this saw bench a few weeks ago out of simple construction lumber and scraps. It is rough based on the schwarz' bench but I just threw it together to my likings. It really improved the efficiency of my saws and they are a lot more of a joy to use now. I also picked up two saws with ugly...
  10. Saw Bench

    Saw bench made from the plans of Christopher Schwarz's book "The Workbench Design Book." All parts made from home center 2 by Douglas Fir that was allowed to dry out for several months. I began making this bench using all hand tools but the fir is definately not friendly with the hand tools...
  11. Saw Pony

    This is another post aimed at those of us who are just getting started. If you don't have a set of these you will need them at some point. I just made some new saw ponies so I thought I would post them. I use these to finish large projects so they are off the floor but not on a table. They are...
  12. Sawbench (It has pockets!)

    This is my sawbench. With it, I am well pleased. Yes, it is already dented, dinged and dirty. I had to put it to work before I even finished finishing it. But they're not called "display benches" or "look-pretty benches," now are they? Parts were cut to length and ripped to width on the...
  13. Saw Bench

    I've been meaning to make a saw bench for a while now. Since I got into hand tool work I have been using a chair as a saw bench. It had served me well but it was a tad too tall and I always hated when the saw hit the metal legs of the chair and longer rips have always been a challenge. Fast...
  14. Saw Bench

    I don't have a good workbench, if you could even call it a workbench to begin with. I wanted something I could use for hand work stuff without having to build a full workbench yet because I don't have the space nor the money for one. I am fairly new to woodworking so this build was a learning...
  15. Feed roller for your saw bench

    I made two feed rollers which can be attached to my saw benches using clamps and are adjustable for any height that you need. They are made from scrap lumber and hardware in the shop. I added a lip under each bench that is 2×2 for clamping purposes.
  16. Another Saw Bench

    Just another saw-bench ... a variation of Stumpy's split top saw-bench
  17. Luggage racks

    With three adult children and grandchildren coming to visit, my Dad decided that since he felt like he was running a hotel it should be provisioned like a hotel and asked me to make some luggage holders for the guest bedrooms to make life a little easier for all concerned… and here is the...
  18. Split Top Saw Bench with wedge powered Wagon Vice and Integrated Saw Till

    I decided I needed a saw bench and did a lot of research here on Lumberjocks and around the web and I've seen lots of saw benches; some I like, some not. I knew I needed one but wasn't sure where to start. Until I saw episode 3 of the old timey workshop! by StumpyNubs. I also decided that...
  19. Saw Bench

    Not much challenging with this one. Build all from pine from the local borg, but it was my 2nd project assignment in Hand Tool School. Funny how it takes an assignment to build something that you need instead of saying "I'll just do it this way and clean up the mess I make later. Not perfect...
  20. Saw Bench

    The newest addition to my shop is a Stumpy Nubs inspired saw bench. The dovetails and draw-bored M&T legs make it very rigid. This is my first saw bench and so far I am very satisfied. Made from 2×4's and 2×6's. Layne
