    This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. This is a wonderful example of Danish work at its core, what a great crafts project to undertake, and it will sure to be the center piece of any table setting or this would also make a wonderful coffee table accessories. I love Danish, the simplicity, the folk art that surrounds it, and this looks like it would be a pretty simple project to turn out and carve out in a day. Hope you enjoy!
  3. Anyone have any pictures or plans of jewelry boxes they've made? I am looking for something I can make out of some salvaged black walnut. Probably 3 drawers and no hinged lid. Not finding many examples of such. Since the wood is re-purposed, dimensions are somewhat limited to 8x16x8.
  4. Used to remember when a Friday meant something good was going on....being Retired, every day is either a Friday....or a Monday..... Anything planned for the weekend? Veterans' Day being Monday..... I might see IF I can add to this pile... Might be working too hard, for a FRIDAY?
  5. That stash of Ash has sat long enough..brought home in the van a few weeks ago... I think there was 40bf in this mess? That fancy grained one...used to be 11' or so long...may look good as raised panels? So, I did a rough sketch of what I wanted to build...to keep measurements from getting lost There will be a "hutch" on top....waiting to see how the rest turns out... Need to build 3 panels, to form the sides... "RP" is for raised panels. Frame is 3/4' x 2" x how ever long I need. Raised panels will sit in 3/8" grooves. Set up so the "rails" are where the runners for each drawer will be. The place where my knees go? Figured a 28" wide drawer was a bit much...split the drawer into 2 drawers. Drawer fronts are 2" by about 14" (closer to 12" with the center divider) means I need to build 2 frames, with the center divider... need to get the shop "cleared for action" and then decided where to start cutting....and shaping...and gluing up....Top is a 5 board glue-up! 3/4" x 26" x 50"! Stay tuned....

  7. Hi, my mother-in-law has a storage shed on her property. It’s about 27 years old, neighbors tree fell on shed, roof no longer rain tight. Shed was an cheapie, did a great job lasting this long. Doors are sagging/rotting, roof has moss growing on it, particle board has become fall-aparticle-board. So I’m trying to find out whether it’s more cost advisable to buy a new, already made one(probably not), buy a precut kit, and assemble (maybe, but quality could still be an issue), or just get a set of plans build it myself, well with some help of course (I’m thinking this is the most inexpensive, and fun, but also most work). To price out the build it myself, I need plans. Due to my MIL’s yard/driveway layout, we’re looking for a shed that is 8 feet X 12 feet. We need the door to be one the 8 foot end, and maybe a window or two for light. I found a set of plans that do this, but the rafters, joists, etc seem to be 24 inches on center, I think for strength and snow loads up here in NE I’m wanting 16 inches on center. So any recommendations for where I can get good plans would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for any help or suggestions, Artie PS I have checked the laws/rules/regulations and no permit is required for sheds 120 sq feet or less.
  8. A Few years back I lost my Drafting table that I did all my art work on, in a house fire along with most of my wood working tools. Also the desire to create anything. I am now I am in a new home started to get back into wood working again. I am also wanting to get back into creating my art again. the old me coming back. What I need now is plans for a Drafting table. One that would fit a 30X36" desk top would be great. I have an Ideal what I am wanting but would like to see some ideals.
  9. Well I did it again. I perused Amazon books this past weekend and found some wonderful book about Shaker Furniture. I know our admin John Moody loves Shaker too! I am hooked on Amazon Used Books, you can purchase virtually any book used on Amazon at a fraction of the cost of a new book, great for us, not so great for the original author and publishers. But hey, your keeping small independent used book stores across the nation busy and cash flowing! So there is an upside to the supply side of this. Here is another book I purchased through Amazon at this link: The following books arrived over the last two days in my mail box, and I love them! This first book caught my eye completely because I really want to build a shaker Mt. Lebanon style chair, and rocker. I love the style and the weaved seating. I paid $3.99 plus $3.99 shipping on this one. How to Build Shaker Furniture by Thos. Moser, the Moser's are one of my favorite woodworking families in the entire world. I get their catalog of furniture every year and I drool and I also get inspiration for design ideas. This book arrived in excellent condition as well. I paid $1.99 plus $3.99 shipping on this one. Here is another Kerry Pierce book for Shaker furniture and storage. I can't wait to dig and read this from front to back. I paid $4.99 with free shipping on this one. All three of these book were listed on the Used Book Scorecard as "Good Condition". Folks, these books look brand spanking new! These are the actual scans of the books I received, if you look at the first book above, you'll see a little turned up corner at the lower right of the cover, that is the only visible wear out of all three of these books. Each book ranges in prices from 24 to 30 bucks retail based on the tag on the rear covers. I paid a total of $18.95. You can't beat these deals, I would like to encourage anyone who wants a book, to avoid purchasing new, and re-purpose these used books at a fraction of the cost. Thanks for reading!

  11. Well, time to draw up a "Plan" of some sort.. Yep, that's it. Bed is in the next room...involved laying a board on the bed to get heights worked out....checked with the Boss on head board height...Now have the lengths for the sides and the ends.. Needed these...to lay out a few lines on a post.. Ok, need to get 1 foot board post, and one head board post out of this thing.. Stuff like this wasn't included...will be headed towards the FirePit later.. Ditto...laid out a cut line to cut the two posts apart.. Saw kerf sized. Used a couple other boards to layout for the head board parts.. 24" wide? Not quite..23-7/8" wide. 2x4 will be the top/bottom rail ( bought two). Once I knew where the bottom rail will be I could also lay out for the top rail. "Notch" is just to locate the size of the plywood panel. Also laid out where the frame rails will go. Lay out for this thingy was done...might as well cut the posts apart...make it easier to layout the other post.. Boss said "NO!" to my cutting the post in place....had to haul it to the shop.. Post was too long to lay ON the bench...laid it across this bench, and rested the end over by the grinder, on it's bench..Took a while, got my Cardio Workout for the morning.. Shorty is for the foot board end...."Jeff" is for the head board end. Debating on completing all the cuts, then layout the other two, or just lay things out and cut the second set. Side rails will run past the head and foot boards. Sliding dovetails to connect all four rails.....then the posts are installed to the outside of the frame...leaves the interior clear. Posts will get a few lags to attach them, no glue. Want as much that can be torn down for any future moves as I can..Head board may stay as a glued up unit..we'll see. Well, it is a start....stay tuned...

  14. Good morning guys/ladies, I was wondering if anyone could share a set of plans for a 3-4' outdoor lighthouse? I have many paid links and the dreaded 16,000 plans ones but was hoping for a decent free set. Thank you for any help. Pat

  17. I have plans to build a miter saw station, but it's pretty far down on the list. Anyone have one of these and/or comment on suitability? Not sure I could build one for $99 unless I get a lot of free material somewhere. https://www.ruralking.com/universal-miter-saw-stand.html?utm_medium=email&utm_source=2017-06-24+Product+Spotlight&utm_campaign=34450013&utm_contnet=34450013&_bta_tid=40394734835476410414092769078826458601265630212476166980842161197823536953237897877835910512335843805801
  18. WOOD Magazine has always provided something free for us woodworkers.
  19. Last weekend the woodworking club had our annual seminar with Glen Huey of 360 Woodworking, previously of Popular Woodworking Magazine and custom furniture maker. He did demos of joint making, primarily dovetail and mortise and tenon variations. He recommend this book as his "bible" https://www.amazon.com/dp/1565233697/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1BPL7A309FJBR&coliid=I159ALHR7ZRP9R I got a copy and have been reading it. The first 60 or so pages are on wood properties and various joints. Not so much "how to do" but "what it looks like" with lots of variations. The next 50 pages are on various "sub-assemblies" -- using the joints listed before, how to do things like doors, drawers, and cases. The last 200+ pages are all sorts of furniture designs. Each is covered in two pages that lists various style options (Shaker, Danish modern, colonial, etc), a few references for published plans and an exploded drawing showing joinery and critical dimensions. If you are like me and have a general idea of what and how to build but are looking for some ideas to push you in the right direction,this is quite the ticket. While probably not for the rank beginner, for those with some experience to look at a drawing and know where to start, this is a great book.
  20. Hello, I'm going to be a first time grandfather in the fall. My son has asked me if I could build a sliding rocking chair. I was wondering if anyone out there has built one and has plans? Best regards to all, Ron

  23. Anyone have any plans (or even ideas) for constructing a bed for a bed race? I've been asked to come up with a prototype by the end of the month. In case you're not familiar, there is one rider and four people pushing on each corner while the bed competes in a race against similar such contraptions. This is going to be for a fund-raiser this fall, but we want to get the prototype done for a display soon. Googling, most of them use bike frames/parts, but that's not what I'm able to do -- thinking more like 4-5" pneumatic tires on casters. Here are a couple of examples.

  24. i have designed a rifle shooting bench for the local gun range, have made a prototype so far, to get dimensions worked out, will be making at least 4 in the coming week to fill out the newly expanded rifle range. free plan to anyone interested: shooting bench bill of materials.pdf and remember the 4 basic safety rules: 1. Treat all guns as loaded 2. Keeps guns pointed in a safe direction at all times 3. Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire 4. Know your target and what is beyond. Shooting Bench.pdf
  25. Below (hopefully) is what I want to build. Does anyone have plans? I know it is 5ft long. For outdoor stuff I always fully radius all horizontal pieces. So the stringers, Arm rest and back top and bottom may get radius and the bottom get a saw curf. This is to keep the water off and to stop it from hanging on the bottom edges. Any ideas on how to reverse engineer this would be appreciated.
