  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!
  2. Over the past several weeks I have been slowly working on a new workbench for hand tool woodworking. This is a learning project for me and I am learning a lot. At the heart of things I am finding that I really enjoy hand tool woodworking. I am also finding out that I am not particularly good at it which doesn’t surprise me much as I have never really dedicated any time to it or learned the proper ways to do things with hand tools. My saw skills definitely need work as I have never done anything with hand saws but rough carpentry and this is a whole new ball of wax. That said, progress is being made and I was able to dry fit the left and right leg assemblies today. They are square and the hand cut mortises and tenons are well fit for the most part. I discovered that i NEED a shoulder plane to really finish these up properly. That said, the little gaps from my lousy saw skills won’t impact the functionality of this workbench in the slightest. Especially after everything is drawbored, pinned, and glued in place. As I work my way through this build I will continue to post updates on the overall progress.

  6. I really thought I had finished this post and discovered today that was not the case . So here goes. Now the lumber was finally here and cutting parts to size and glue up for thicker parts begins. These wider pieces were real fun doing the glue up on. Kinda like holding a snake who wants to run. The next photo is the legs. Note I used a waxed spacer to keep the slots open and spaced properly for end cross support. Now the fun begins with the heavy lifting. Three pieces of MDF half sheets 24 X 72 glued up for the top. And then this is what the wide pieces look like after glue up is cured. Time to edge band the top and a look at the legs with stretcher ready for assembly. Top is now banded and work begins on adding the vices and some heavy trim to hold the vices. Now to assemble the legs and put the base together. This is a look at the bed bolts holding the base together. The top has a layer of 1/4 masonite to allow changing is damaged. This is secured with brass screws. This top is so heavy there are no fasteners holding it down . It is simply sitting on top of the frame. The drawers units were built later with the top two drawers being added after the others were done. The dog holes were drilled using a block of scrape oak to hold the drill straight. Then they were countersunk to male insertion of dogs easier. This last pic is the back where you can see the addition of two drawers clearly. I did not take pictures of the mounting of the vices and building the front faces, a "fun" job. The drawers now have Kaizan foam lining . Planes drawer is the last photo.
  7. Looks like an MFT 2.0. I got the Microjig clamps a few years ago and find them very handy. Would not be too tough to make something like this on your own from half a sheet of MDF. https://www.woodshopnews.com/sponsored-content/the-ultimate-workbench-isnt-a-choice-its-a-necessity?utm_medium=email&_hsmi=219670869&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9ciGZZXNkbh-CYB2KybFpTcXIcsUcrNA9pYHMZTzFMVpQuSkmeOWUM5KgktT7f0qvyx4Li6GItnj6zCpWhaJDVap3RAMyMeg8NPj9Lgyc4OwzAjGE&utm_content=219670869&utm_source=hs_email

  14. 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!
  19. 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?
