  1. Roubo Workbench (Hand tools Only)

    In my attempt to move over to a hand tool lifestyle, I decided to upgrade my workbench to a Roubo, since they are all the rage. This is Roy Underhill's version. I don't have his book, so I had to redesign it to fit what I remember it as, keeping his basic vision as a base to work off of. I biult...
  2. XCarve bench

    Earlier this year I bought an XCarve CNC to teach myself the basics of woodworking CNC with. The XCarve is a meter square, and I didn't have an appropriate space for it in my shop. Since I had been watching lots of videos on traditional joinery techniques, I decided to try to build a budget...
  3. Deacon's Bench with Storage

    This bench was made from a woodcraft plan. The lady wanted southern yellow pine with a walnut stain. I used slats inside for air circulation since she will be putting damp shoes in it. Over 70% of the bench was made from 1 1/2 inch material. This made it sturdy but on the heavy side.
  4. Western picture frame

    I had this picture laying around the house for about 6 months. Finally came up with a frame idea. I think it turned out pretty good. Just simple half lap joinery. The wood is southern yellow pine, that was destined to become a fence board. Horse shoes were bead blasted and powered coated from a...
  5. Jelly Cabinet

    This is a small cabinet that nearly qualifies as an antique. I actually built it back in 1977 or 1978, I really don't remember exactly when. It was built of some Southern Yellow Pine that came from a building that was torn down in Stephenville, Texas. It features a raised panel door with through...
  6. Workbench

    This is a workbench which I made from plans published in the August 2002 issue of Popular Woodworking. The article was called "Power-tool Workbench" as the bench's design was biased toward the use of power, rather than hand, tools. Also, it was made to have a height such that it is used as an...
  7. English Style Workbench - The Nicholson

    This is an English Style Workbench I just completed. I followed the plans in Christopher Schwarz's book Workbenches from Design & Theory to Construction & Use. I made a website which shows the construction steps I went through while building the bench. Just follow the link here: . My English...
  8. Split Top Roubo - Benchcrafted

    Yes….another split top roubo…. I just completed my lifetime workbench. I have worked on this off and on for several months - probably close to a year. I really have no idea how long it has actually taken me. I used power tools as much as possible. However, I don't own a power jointer or...
  9. Octagonal Art Box

    Octagonal Art Box Box number 33 in my recent box series. This is number 15 in my Adventures into Shape. I'm going with "Octagonal Art Box" but I had a few other titles including "Elegant Monstrosity" or "Monstrous Elegance" among others. I might rename it later. This is the first octagonal box...
  10. Glass Door Book Case

    My wife is a book collector and quite a Tolkien aficionado with several first editions etc. They needed a place to be displayed out of the dust. I started this back in early December, but didn't manage to finish it before Yuletide. But at least it's still winter! The second part matches...
  11. Mission Style Bench

    Just finished yesterday, a mission style (I think) bench. My wife wants a new dining table and chairs similar to one posted here by Pintodelux (as I recall it was by Willie Landry Designs), but she also wanted a bench to go with it. Before I just did into chair making, I figured I would do...
  12. Traditional Sawbench

    Here is a saw bench I made the past couple of weekends from Chris Schwarz plans. I used recycled wood on this, the legs came from an old rope bed, the top and stretchers are from leftover framing lumber and the rest from shipping crates.
  13. Coronavirus distractions

    I kept myself busy for the last month. These projects were useful and needed as I make one side of my garage a wood shop. Next is a lathe stand. I am loving my hand planes, and my Dozuki saw.
  14. Assembly table in southern yellow pine

    This table is about 36" tall, 3' x 6', with 3.5×3.5 legs and 7" aprons. I purchased 12" wide boards so that I could cut out pieces without knots. The aprons are two pieces glued. The legs are 3 pieces glued.
  15. SYP Split-Top Roubo Workbench

    Eleven months to the day (pretty much), my workbench is finished! The bench is a split-top Roubo style made with construction-grade southern yellow pine. It has a leg vise and tail vise (hardware from Lee Valley). The storage platform has a cabinet to house my planes (and keep them free of...
  16. Paul Sellers Workbench

    I've been wanting to build a workbench for some time and this year I decided life is short, build your bench. It is based on the Paul Sellers design with some small modifications. Most obviously, it has two different-sized laminated tops. This seemed to me like a good way to have a larger...
  17. Irwin Auger Bit Set/Box

    My attempt to replicating an old Irwin Auger Bit Set box. The original was in pieces and falling apart and the lid was missing. The auger bits were badly rusted and no longer sharp. I cleaned up the rust in an electrolysis bath. I picked the best of the bunch to add to the box and I suspect...
  18. Slab sided floating top river table desk

    This one has a ton of firsts for me: 1) epoxy as finish (Stonecoat Countertop epoxy) 2) gouge texturing 3) sliding dovetail battens 4) shou sugi ban 5) TransTint dye 6) black dye 7) floating top 8) slabs that have only dried six months, paired with kiln dried lumber (It's okay, I accounted for...
  19. Anarchist Inspired Workbench

    Finally got my workbench completed. This is inspired by Chris Schwartz's The Anarchist's Workbench book which you can download in ebook format for free. I don't have room for his 8' bench so I drew up my own plans in Sketchup for a 6' version. The bench is about 74" long by 23" wide and the...
  20. Small Bathroom Vanity and Storage

    Couple of of items I made for a recent small bathroom reno, storage space was lacking so. I added as much as I could. It is made of figured maple and BE maple panels. I still need to figure out a better way to "hide" where I moved the electrical to accomodate the new light fixture. I found...
