Default Bench is finished

Finally finished my scandavian style workbench.

Base is white oak with maple drawers
body of bench is hard maple
dog hole strip is white ash
tail vise caps and back board of curly maple
walnut support block in the dog leg vise and
mahogany for the dog leg vise

Going to enjoy working on this instead of that osb on a tubafor frame!

Very nice! Looks like it was quite a project in itself.

That it was, Ed. Wish I had tracked the hours (or maybe I'm glad I didn't?)

It was a lot of time and an awful lot of wood. The two maple slabs were
16/4, but I couldn't bring myself to plane them down to 2 1/2" like the
plans called for, so there's some extra heft in this beast. I do have a
bunch of nice offcuts from this!

Thanks Leon. We'll see how long it goes before it starts looking like a
*used* workbench!

Of course, have you seen Frank Klausz'? Looks like all he ever does is
polish his.

would just be wrong) C.

traumatic!

Very nice! A special piece of wood for the shoulder vise
spacer block is a nice touch. The one in Frank Klausz's
bench the inspiration?

Did you with the traditonal all wood tail vise? If not, whose
hardware did you decide on?

Did you go with the nylon centered lock nut on the AllThread?

Big dovetails are fun. Did you use a bandsaw or a handsaw?
Most dovetail saws won't cut that deep. Tenon saw will though.

Tool tray is knid of handy - and the ramped ends will make it
easier to sweep out.

Shallow draweres were a good idea - no digging through layers
of tools to find something. Go with wooden drawer guides or
metal drawer guides?

Did you spline the apron to the bench top core?

End of the front apron mortise and tenon joined?

With panels between the legs and a frame and panel
inbetween it should be pretty stabile

The bottom stretchers AllThreaded?

Nice bench. Should come in handy on your next project.

Betting this will be your last bench.

Well Charlie, you've certainly hit on some good questions. See my answers
below

Yes, I liked the spalted one in Frank's bench but I didn't have any spalted
maple. The Walnut was the crotch from an 8/4 natural edge slab that I
gloated on awhile back.

Did you with the traditonal all wood tail vise? If not, whose
hardware did you decide on?


The only metal is the screw. I got the screws at two different times,
therefore the different color heads (green and black). The green one on the
tail vise is actually the cheaper one.

Did you go with the nylon centered lock nut on the AllThread?

Nope, I used red (perm) Loc-Tite on the front nut on the dogleg vise and
used a jam nut on the other end in the tool tray. That way I can easily
loosen the back one with seasonal change. Wanted to permanently lock the
front so that the AllThread never protrudes out the front.

Big dovetails are fun. Did you use a bandsaw or a handsaw?
Most dovetail saws won't cut that deep. Tenon saw will though.

They are fun. Really fun in rock hard maple where the tolerances disappear.
Dog leg vise I used a bandsaw to cut the two half pins first by tilting the
table. Used that to mark the tail and bandsawed that as well. Tail vise:
Through dovetails on the back the same way. Half blinds on the front were a
workout. Mallet and chisel all the way!

Tool tray is knid of handy - and the ramped ends will make it
easier to sweep out.

Ayup. Already I love having it there. Kind of nice to be able to move your
workpiece around without knocking stuff off the bench. I'm trying to create
the habit of never setting things down except in the tray. We'll see how
that works out.

Shallow draweres were a good idea - no digging through layers
of tools to find something. Go with wooden drawer guides or
metal drawer guides?


I'll save the wooden guides for the furniture. All ball bearing KV slides.
Got a deal sometime back and picked up a couple cases.

Did you spline the apron to the bench top core?

Yes, the apron is splined with a break in the spline for the thin-stock
planing stop (which is the same material as the dogleg vise face). The dog
hole strip was then attached with quadruple rows of #20 biscuits between
each dog hole. That was *fun* putting that on! Lotta glue and lotta lining
up in a short amount of time.


End of the front apron mortise and tenon joined?


Nope. They are loose splined. I don't have quite the stable shop humidity
that I would like, so I couldn't take any chances with splitting. Now that
I read your question again.... you're asking about the end caps, right?


With panels between the legs and a frame and panel
inbetween it should be pretty stabile


I could set my car on top of that base.

The bottom stretchers AllThreaded?


No. Just some 6" bolts with the nut hidden in a recess in the stretchers.
Kind of what you would do on a bed frame.

Nice bench. Should come in handy on your next project.


Thank you Charlie, always nice when someone takes an interest.

Betting this will be your last bench.

I hope so! I could have used a bench to build it! Isn't that always the
way?

charlie b


Be well, work wood,

Joe C.

It was. Flipped the top over on the base to work on the tail vise and
didn't notice a screw lying on one of the top bearers. Doh! Ah well, it
*is* for working on, right?

Dang! she's a lefty.

That is sweet.

I notice you have 4 dog holes in the tail vise. How did you figuew the dog
hole spacing on the bench as it relates to the vise?

First class work, very well done I know you will get years of enjoyment
out of this bench and every time you stand back and look it over you
will be glad you put in the effort.

Steve,

The spacing is all even. The idea behind having 4 evenly spaced on the vise
instead of 2, front and back is the flexibility to have whatever I'm
pounding on centered over the legs and not over the vise. Having four holes
allows me to do this without winding the vise all the way in or out each
time. That being said, for planing operations, the front dog on the vise
will be used about 90% of the time to keep the majority of the board on the
bench itself and not on the vise..

Joe C.

And yep, she is a lefty! That oughta keep anyone from borrowing it! LOL!
Having a lefty bench is one of the many reasons I made my own instead of
buying one. I make enough righty tool/lefty woodworker concessions already,
my bench wasn't going to be another one!
