See the finished bench! we complete the base and assemble it to the benchtop. Options for a finish coating are discussed.
Do you want to know how to make a really strong base for your workbench? I'll show you how!
We finished the benchtops by installing the front vise and tail vise. Then we took them across town to have them sanded. The tail vise installation was difficult due to a procedural issue but we finally resolved it.
Come see how we installed the vises on our workbenches while we were visited by a Fine Woodworking web producer.
See today's progress in building a cabinetmakers workbench at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking.
Come along to see the second day of workbench class at Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. Today we glued up the end vise, made twin mortises and tenons to join workbenchtop parts, and got a portion of the first workbench top dry fitted together.
Follow along as I build a woodworkers workbench at Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in a week long class. The bench we are building is similar to the Lie Nielsen workbench and uses the Lie Nielsen vise hardware.
This week I'm taking the class; Build a Traditional Cabinetmaker's Workbench. I'll report on my progress each day and give you the inside scoop on what its like. I'm really excited about building a real cabinetmakers workbench with Lie Neilsen vise hardware and solid maple construction.
