  1. What's on your work bench? This is the official topic for images and friendly chatter regarding that all important surface, the personal statement of your shop, the steadfast friend we can always count on, the space of your shop that nobody knows better than you, we are talking about the almighty "Work Bench". Submit your images now! That's right, don't clean it up, don't be embarrassed, the messier the better, or if there is nothing on it at all, that is fine too. If you have not touched your bench in years, and you have taken a break from woodworking and have boxes pile
  2. Just finished removing the top of my 30 Y.O. work bench. It was pretty beat up with numerous saw kerfs and splotches of Bondo and cured resin. Not to mention errant drill bit traces, screw and/or nail holes holes. It was two full sheets of 3/4 MDF, covered with 1/2"X2" X various length pine strips and, banded with 3/4 red oak. It was one heavy bench top, for sure. I'm guessing nearly 200 lbs. It took all Phyl and I could muster to get it in the truck bed. The support structure remains in great shape and will soon have a new top. I'll get some pics of the supports tomorrow.
  3. I found this on Craigs List, and I was curious what it's used for? I don't even know if it's metal or woodworking related. Thanks for any information.
  4. Getting to the point, that BEFORE I can do anything else on them projects.... Something needs to be done about this mess.... Things keep trying to walk off the edge....about half of this mess will go back into the tool chest.. Also, was getting tired of chasing the handbroom around. new keepers to keep the saws from rattling... Here we go..first was to box up a few planes... Stanley 45. have to tear it down, to pack up...close the lid... Placed in the big tool chest..next.. Stanley No. 71-1/2 Just sit down in the box..
  5. Started my bench build yesterday. No plans, just took a few measurements of me and my son for bench height, and winging it. The top will be from pine, and we'll have folding legs. Dry fitting the miters. I also got Mama's car out of the garage today, I feel like I have a shop! 😊
  6. My son's old bench. It has seen better days. It took me an hour just to clear the brush around it! ...and the replacement! Seems he's going for the luxury version this time! Used recycled flooring for the bench. I'll be going over later to work on it some more. Updates to follow! John

  10. Hey folks, been looking around the web and have not found much, I'd like to build a knock down shooting bench. It has to be small enough to fit in my 2009 Toyota Corolla, and light enough to obviously carry to the shooting area by one person. There a ton of stable solid shooting benches out there but they are big and bulky, and should be left in place after built. Any idea or help is greatly appreciated. I'm sure if I sat down and drew one up, I could come up with something, but if someone already invented the wheel in this one, I'd like to see an example. There are plenty on th
  11. Good day folks, I wonder if anyone has any experience with, or knows where to get a good Made in the USA, or European, Sweden or German, anything but China, bench vise for carving, and something that would be used by gunsmiths. Preferably I'd like to see something that can be clamped to the bench while in use, and unclamped and out of the way to free up my bench during typical use. The ideal vise would be multi positional for carving. I am interested in building flintlock rifles, I see other builders using a front vise to hold one end of the gun and a fixed or clamp-on vise to
  12. Worked on this while stuck at home. Two 4 X 8' - 3/4" sheets of plywood glued together. Self adhesive edging around the outside edge, several coats of floor quality polyurethane and on 300 lb. capacity wheels. Exact height for using it as an extension table for my table saw.
  13. We picked this bench up at an estate auction and have been trying to research and gain any knowledge about the history behind this bench. We found it odd that it’s made by Oliver Machinery Co. There is no machine or serial number on the Oliver metal plaque, and can not find a number on the vise. Thanks in advance for any help!
  14. Tonight I pulled my end vise from my new bench. When I picked up my bench over a month ago, I noticed the vise was very stiff. Beyond stiff, actually the tube holes swelled around the tubes to the point of zero clearance, as a matter of fact the wood was tight around the tubes. I don't know when the last time was that the previous owner used his vise, it could have been years, judging by how his shop appeared to have not been worked in for a long time, he may have not known that his vise was nearly in-operable. at 95 years old, he may not have even been able to spin the handle, maybe, maybe no
  15. The right side of my end vise binds up. You'll see the left side move in, and the right side binds. I have completely broken down this vise, all the way. Cleaned, reamed out the holes a millimeter or two, waxed it all down, reassemble, it works fine for a few months then goes back to its wicked ways. From around 6" open it's fine, get beyond that it starts binding. While opening and closing. Any suggestions are welcome. Here's the tune up I did awhile back.
  16. Just a quick drive by of my shop in transition. As y'all can see, Mama's car fits!

  18. Good day folks, I am adding terminology for our wiki in the category of Workbenches. If you have the time, could you help build our list in this topic?

  19. Since it is less < 10 this doesn't qualify as hoarding either. Just rescuing these great hand grinders from the scrap iron pile. And they all work, a few are not OSHA approved though.
  20. From the album: John's Shop

    I recently inherited this beautiful workbench. The top is 4" thick, 6.5' long by 24" wide with a tool well at the rear. The top is composed of Maple and Oak billets, there are dog holes and the original owner made his own dogs out of aluminum rounds, they work very well. The end vise is large and very powerful. The cabinet is made of oak, with oak drawers and walnut pulls. I will be using the bench as my primary work surface for all I do, I cannot wait to start work on it. I purchased the hold fasts from a fellow on ebay, he hand forges them and sells them at a very reaso

  22. One of the very first woodworking blogs I ever became interested in is this blog by Kari Hultman, a wonderful craftswoman and artist really, in my opinion she brings hand tooled woodworking to another level of refinement. Kari and I have been social media buddies since the old days of this blog, even though Kari has picked up a new line of work and interest (leather), I still visit her blog frequently. It reminds of a time on the internet when things were just simpler, and straight forward, and her old blog is still live, whenever I visit the blog, a nice cozy warm feeling comes over me, enjoy!
  23. Last week I went shooting out near Fishtrap Washington. Nice place to shoot but no place to sit. I don't like to lie on the rock so I decided to build a portable shooting bench. It took about five hours to make at a cost of sixty five dollars. It is made from one sheet of 3/4" plywood. I used cheap outdoor carpet for the table top and seat. It uses no nails or screws and disassembles in about 30 secs. Lays flat for transport.
  24. How often have I seen Steven Newman post a pick and he has something in his vise. Man that looks so useful verses a mechanics vise on top of a bench. Problem, where do I put it, and you know two would be better with my bad wrist and arm. Now I know this may not be the best placement but this is what was available. I work with what I have, not what I wish for. In theory anyway. Used the original holes for a extra extension on the saw, 7/6" machine bolts 2 1/2 inches long, used all 3 holes. Took some old maple I had and glued together then drilled the holes and dry fitting eve
  25. Ok, between Projects at the moment....took a long look at the vise that has seen so much use...and abuse the last 3 years...or so.. Uummmm, yeah. Managed to dig a "dog" out of the bench.. Had to pound it down out of the bench, in fact. May work on ti as well.. Methinks this needs a new set of jaws...may replace the chewed up end of the bench, while I am at it.. Fingers keep getting little slivers up under fingernails...easy enough to remove... May be a couple more under the jaws. Depending on the next trip to Menard's...about when som
