  1. Projects Beech and Cherry HiVise with Benchcrafted hardware

    This is my version of a HiVise accessory vise for my bench. The vice is easily portable and moved from surface to surface using the accessory mounting screw. Hardware and plans from Benchcrafted. Shout out to Caleb James (@calebjamesmaker) for his ShaperHub project that made building this a...
  2. Yet more cups of coffee and biscuits

    Having said to someone recently that I never made the same thing twice, here I am having made the third one of these "2 cups of coffee & a packet of biscuits, please". The first I made just for a bit of fun, but it's proved very useful for its purpose, and has since had daily use. I was speaking...
  3. Workbench with retractable wheels

    35 hours later and now I have me a nice and well needed work bench. I saw this design on the North Carolina Woodworking forum page (my Thanks to Ken for posting his design). There were no plans that I could see but I thought I could work this out with the three photos that were posted by Ken...
  4. Maple Workbench

    I decided to build a workbench for my dad because he has never really had a nice surface to work off of. So I started this project which is built from hard white maple. The top is 1 3/4" thick hard maple face glued in 1 3/4" sections. It is 30" wide and 72" long. The skirts are 3 1/2" maple. I...
  5. Functional Bench

    Well, it's not a work of art…. but it is a very functional tool. This bench started life in our shipping department at work and had a stainless sheet metal cover on it. My boss scored several nicer benches at an auction and after this one was burried in storage for a long time, he accepted my...
  6. English Style Workbench Build

    Hi All, I recently finished my workbench after a several-month long build. As I can only dedicate time to my woodworking in my free time, things took a little longer than anticipated. The bench is made from softwood from B&Q, I think the US equivalent is Lowes? The two halves of the bench top...
  7. Little Jobs for the Shop

    Over the last week or so I've been doing some odd jobs around the shop. A new handle for my bench vice - beech with walnut caps. I got the bench secondhand and the hand was a bit short, a bit thin with nasty plastic end caps !! A chisel mallet which I turned from a bit of wood I got from my good...
  8. workbench with cabinet space

    I posted these pictures in another part of website but they don't show up in my gallery so I'm reposting them. The top is made of scrap hardwoods. it is 34.75" high and 84" long. It has a tool tray in the middle of the top. If I made it again I probably would make a solid top. The base is...
  9. Vice Handle - First Wood Turning Project

    I recently restored an old Colombian vice. It had a metal handle on it but I prefer wood handles. A 7/8" oak dowel fit the vice perfectly, all I needed was caps for the ends of the handle. I do not yet own a lathe so I called my Dad. He has my grandfather's old 10ER shop smith. I have never...
  10. First Moxon Vice

    My first Moxon Vice. I have several metal vices which work great but are too small to securely hold bigger work pieces. I have some Purple Heart left over from this years Chief Transition so I decided to use some for this project. I used MDF as the clamp faces and the "anvil" base plate which...
  11. Mini-workbench Mk. II

    Boys and Girls, The jury is still out as to which group I belong to… more shekels than I confess to the taxman or less brains than I brag to my kids about. I have belatedly inserted this next paragraph for late comers… The mini-workbench is not intended to compensate for a bad back though it...
  12. Twin Screw Bench Vise

    This is an idea originally put up by Chris Schwarz (editor for popular woodworking magazine) on his blog. It's a take on the twin screw vise based on several books from the 1800's. The idea of being able to put a twin screw vise onto my bench when I need it and get it out of my way when I don't...
  13. weatherstations

    After showing the weatherstaion that I made for my Dad to the good folks at WOODCRAFT in W.Springfield MA , the always friendly and helpful "T" asked me to make one for her as well…..How could I refuse ? She wasn't sure which type of wood she would like , so I made three choices for her to pick...
  14. £19 veneer press

    I've been wanting to get some more small but intricate things made, but i have no ability to veneer other than sticking two boards across and clamping. Which has mixed results. Vacuum presses start at a few hundred, and book makers nipping presses arn't much less. This whole thing cost me...
  15. Workbench of many colors

    I have been wanting a proper workbench for a long time but between buying the lumber and vises I thought the cost was prohibitive. I finally got lucky and found a millwork shop that made custom moldings that was going out of business. I stopped in to see what he had and bought enough lumber to...
  16. Bench Top Bench

    This bench started out as just a 2×12 and a 2×4. Then I decided it needed to be made out of something a little harder. I finally rounded up some white oak to make it out of. Somewhere in the process I decided to dovetail all the joints and champher all the edges. The tall vice was in Shopnotes...
  17. The Bird Bench

    This is my personal workbench inwhich I learned how to create this spring semester at school. There are many features to this bench to the inlays, patternmakers vice, tail vice, that sweet accent of bubinga and the crystalized effect of using chrysacolla. I learned a great deal about...
  18. baby

    Perhaps the most difficult techniques in marquetry work the characters of young people, women or children. For lack of surface rendering for facial wrinkles .. I was so much bigger challenge to do this beautiful baby:) .. I greet all my dear friends on LJ!
  19. Greene and Greene style hall tree

    This is my latest project, a G & G style hall tree. It's actually a prototype made out of cherry and ebony that for some reason I can't stop making changes to. I call it a prototype because, though I only make things for me and my family at the present moment I would love to make things to sell...

    This project has been in the making for about a year and a half and this week it all came together . Another addition to my table saw router table work centre until I build a work bench . http://lumberjocks.com/projects/89736 It is built from some left over prefinished hardwood flooring and...
