  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 piled on it, we want that image too! All images are welcome. Spirit of Topic This is a Hit-n-Run topic, as you walk past your bench, whip out your camera or smart phone, and snap a shot, load it up here. No need for text explanations if you don't want too. To kick this off, walk out in your shop and snap a picture of your bench surface now, and lets get this topic rolling. This will be an ongoing topic, for you to share images of your bench top today, and every day. Types of benches Some of us have small benches, some of us have big benches, some of us use a space in our dining room, some may have a picnic table they use for a bench, and some of us may have a bench of all benches, the traditional joiners bench, or a beautiful full cabinet shakers bench. No matter what you call your work surface, no matter what your work surface looks like, we want to see images of your bench! Thank you in advance to the participants!

  6. I have continued to scan my collection of Workbench Magazine plans for our guests and members to download from our Files Department, and I thought I'd share the Shop Tips section of the magazine as well. As is the case with my file downloads for plans from Workbench Magazine, the same applies here, I have received permission from the current Workbench Magazine to publish the old articles and plans on the open source web. Please see the collection of plans as well at https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/files/ Enjoy! These tips still apply to our work today, very cool!

This is a fun project for old timey waste baskets. It's been a long time since I have seen the joints joined by thong leather or rope, very cool! Have fun!
  11. Checking out the local auctions yesterday I came across this old Craftsman rotating workbench: I remember them being available many years ago, but I never had one nor do I know anyone that had one. It looks to be in good shape and might make a good addition to my son's shop who is just getting set up. Have any of you had/have one? Like it? Pluses or minuses? I did a small amount of research into it last night. Not a lot of info available. Anyone have any info to share about this?

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!
  16. 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!

  22. Ever since 3 years ago when I got a bigger shop, I've wanted a bigger work table. My old one was just a bit too small to hold the linen cabinets, dressers, bookcases, and bunk beds that I've made over the last 5 years. I have a nice Tage Frid design Euro-workbench that I made when I was first getting serious in woodworking. It's fine, but too small for much assembly work. My objectives were: 1. 4x8 top, or close to it to hold the tall and wide projects that seem to be coming my way. 2. Storage underneath for frequently used tools and hardware. Since I decided to fully retire this spring, I have lots of specialty hardware that I used to take onsite that can now reside in the shop, but I need a place for it. I managed to win a bid for the wine display when a local Sam's Club closed and I got about 25 wine box displays made from 1/2" baltic birch. They will make fine drawers. In addition for my $8, I got about $20 worth of Roberson screws, a bunch of 2x4 shorts, about 10 pieces of 3/8" plywood, and some metal racks (that I gave to a friend who runs a feed mill). 3. A place for my Emmert patternmaker's vise that I've never had a place for. It's a heavy guy about 75 lb. Rotates around, swivels out, and holds tapered pieces. 4. Able to disassemble with minimal work in case I need to move it in the future. 5. Some place where I can do glue up, assembly, routing, sanding and whatever on parts. Here's some of the wine boxes, a few of which I've cut hand-holds in. The rest will get it later. I have a jig, use a plunge router with a bushing and mortising bit. The start was to head to Menards and buy some #1 Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) 2x8 joist material. This tends to be straighter and less knotty. I look for stuff that's near the center of the tree. Then I rip in in half and get some nice quarter- and rift-sawn wood. This is much better than the picked over 2x4 that are junky. SYP dries fairly fast. I used part of the lot to make some door frames for my shed, then other projects jumped the line, so it's been sitting for a couple of months. Once ripped, I ran all 4 sides through the planer to get smooth and clean surfaces. No one will know that it's 1 7/16 thick and not 1 1/2" Two layers of 3/4" BCX plywood for the top A story stick to double check my math, joinery, and layout for all the cuts, and a few more trial cuts from cut-off material. I thought about how to make the whole thing sturdy, yet disassemble with ease. While driving across the state, my mind came up with this approach to support all the drawers. Here's the prototype joint for the drawer runners into the vertical supports That works and gave my dado head a real workout. Stock for drawer runners and vertical supports. Until next time, working on rabbeting the drawer glides.
  23. Where to start is to determine just what do you want to use the bench for. At the time for me it was flatwork and planing. I looked at many plans and decided on parts of several. Not sure where each part came from but the contributing plans were in Wood Magazine, Shop Notes and Popular Mechanics. I started with the vices. Both are Lee Valley and maybe even paid full price. They are both front vices but one is mounted on the end. Next is to decide on the wood. I wanted White Oak and it is hard to find at the mill. Well, I did not want to pay 8 plus a foot for that so it took a couple years to find. I think I paid $2.50 a foot. The design I put together has a three layer MDF (3/4) top plus 1/4 Masonite sacrificial layer. This is trimmed in 2 inch White Oak. Yes it took 2 people to move this into place. The legs are a three board glue up and have a center rail thru mortise connecting two end leg sets. The upper and lower rails are wrapped around a lower shelf of MDF and attached with bed bolts. The drawer unit is designed to fit planes , chisels and other small woodworking tools. Full PIP with pictures will be next up just stay tuned.
