Early in December (the 4th and 5th, to be exact), Popular Woodworking Magazine opens its shop in Cincinnati for another class workshop and DVD session. Glen Huey is a former managing editor of Popular Woodworking Magazine, a period furniture maker and author of numerous woodworking books, videos and magazine articles. Dovetailing is a hard art to perfect but looks absolutely proffesional when its pulled off correctly. Christopher Schwarz has helped many of us solve some pretty frustrating problems over the years. Not just for reasons of job security, I’m going to answer “yes” to all of the above questions.
I am trying to finish a fairly large tool, I’ll call, chest, to put all my hand tools and other various woodworking tools plus storage for my Festool systainers. I’ve been keeping up with the “Maker” community for quite some time – as long as Make Magazine has been in publication. I’ve seen quite a few woodworking projects in that magazine and on the related websites and none of them seem to have any experience with wood. If you have a passion for and solid knowledge of woodworking (along with the skills particular to each job) and live in or are willing to relocate to the Greater Cincinnati area, I’d love to hear from you.
An eagle-eyed reader spotted this small benchtop that looks like the bigger Danish brother to the portable Milkman’s Workbench I wrote about in the June 2013 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine.
This benchtop was made by LEVARD, a company in Denmark that still manufactures workbenches. This portable benchtop, which is for sale in an upcoming David Stanley auction, doesn’t appear to be made by LEVARD anymore. I also am not sure if it was intended to be a portable benchtop, like the Milkman’s Workbench.
Chris is a contributing editor to Popular Woodworking Magazine and the publisher at Lost Art Press. I ended up buying this workbench top on Friday at the David Stanley auction, for ?35, to use as a mobile bench for shows and in my small shed workshop. I first heard about them in the late 50’s from our metalwork teacher who was Scandinavian.
I to had my first woodworking experience at one of those workbenches at school, and later got my hands on one so when my son gets older, he will have a good bench to start him of, and hopefully his future passion. You will find around 10 or 20 of those benches in the slojd room, of every danish folkeskole (grades 1-10). Best Foot Forward: The front feet are different than the back feet and are cut to allow the grain to run diagonally from the corner of the base area. I was flipping through a copy of the magazine Antiques one afternoon when I noticed an attractive blanket chest in an advertisement for an antiques dealer in New York.
The chest is built exactly as Shakers did in the 19th century-with the notable exceptions of biscuits to attach the feet, aliphatic resin glue and a few power tools that would have shocked and excited the brethren.
Lower Back Adjustment: With the case glued up and the upper back in place, the loose lower back pieces are ready to be nailed in place.
The case is now ready to assemble, but I’d recommend first taking a couple of minutes to finish sand the interior of the blanket chest area.
When I made the quick video about the Lee Valley plane, I had no shooting board in the shop. You can make a shooting board any size you want, but it doesn’t have to be monstrous unless you have a specific need.
The two pieces of plywood need to be sandwiched together to create a fence and chute for the plane to ride along.


The only things left are the fence and the hook (which holds the shooting board to the edge of your bench). With the fence and hook pilot holes drilled, it’s time to attach them to the plywood sandwich. Chuck is a former senior editor of Popular Woodworking, and has 30+ years of experience as a high-end period furniture maker and woodworking teacher.
Just wanted to say that I was on the woodnet site one day and offered a completely benign response to someone in a conversation and Chuck Bender interrupted to roll his eyes at me in some childish attempt to make himself seem like a woodworking god or something. If you ever had a chance to meet Chuck in person you would have different feelings about him.
My father came for a visit to the United States in 1974, and he spent some time working with me in my shop.
The project that will make you say to your sweetheart, “You really won the dude (or dudette) lottery when you found me!” This project is a confidence builder.
We also have an opening in the woodworking community for an online editor position, reporting to the eMedia group. A couple of hundred pounds of wheelweights on the lower shelf add mass, and I am building a drawer unit. Normally in the school that would be the 19 common tool tray that forms the back of the 19 other benches. You’ll probably need to glue up a few boards to create panels wide enough for the sides, front and top, unless you have access to some lumber in legendary 19th-century widths. Determine the best face and mark it for the outside, then mark the location of the three dadoes for the bottom and the two drawer divider webs as shown in the diagram. The half-lap design provides a closed back, but allows the wood to expand and contract with the wood movement.
The Shakers might have used only glue at this joint, but because we have the technology, cut biscuit slots for all the feet.
When the glue is dry, cut the radius on the front feet to match the curve on the sides and sand your handiwork. I was still in the midst of moving from Pennsylvania and mine were either packed away somewhere or still to be packed. You just need to make sure you work accurately or the thing will be useless when you’re done.
Therefore in the shop, the bowsaw was the main tool used for crosscutting, ripping, dovetailing, for mortise-and-tenon joinery and more. Is woodworking popular, or is that just a catchy combination of words for a magazine title? I haven’t built this one yet, but I am in the market for a new workbench, and I’m starting to lean 21st-century. These days Dan is a former online editor for Popular Woodworking, and is learning new skills every day.
They are distinguished by their unusual tool trays, which are not usually part of the benchtop proper.
It would be difficult to use this bench if clamped to a kitchen cabinet or dining table because the rear row of dog holes would be rendered useless. Drill some pilot holes through the wider piece and countersink them on the side slated to be the bottom of the shooting board.
For a bit of additional hold, you can use some double-sided tape between the fence and the plywood. Does the amount of time you spend looking at a screen directly increase your abilities in the shop?


You’ve seen me blogging about it for a few months, most recently for its potential as a nice piece of furniture. Bob hit it out of the park with this design, combining elements from Roubo-style benches with his own take on hybrid woodworking.
I’ve never much cared for end vices, so it will be fascinating to see how I get on with it.
A dot of glue at the center of the bottom dado and a dot at the ends of the web frame dadoes is sufficient. Because my shooting board is made out of Baltic birch plywood, the preponderance of tools used in its creation will be electrified. If you want to make yours a couple of inches larger or smaller (and Bill, this one’s for you), knock yourself out.
I like to clamp the two pieces together to get the alignment perfect before I drive the screws. It adds grip and is reversible in case you need to replace the fence or make a major adjustment. Seriously, if you make 18th-century-style furniture, or you make furniture with hand tools, you should own a couple of bowsaws.
They had smooth going like crazy back in Europe while we were still hacking away at the western forests. There are quite a few holes in the top, and I can’t tell if they are from a drill or worm. This rabbet should stop 5″ up from the bottom of each side to leave a solid gluing surface for the rear feet. Nail the web frames in place with a single nail through the sides and into the end of the dividers. If they’re not, I use my edge trimming router jig from the November 2013 issue (#207) to make them perfectly square.
Drill and countersink the pilot holes and attach the fences with some screws, double-check the fence for square and you’ve got a simple, accurate, inexpensive shooting board.
I put the board on a couple horses, cut it, put the leftover back on the rack and take the piece in the shop. Nail the front and back pieces in place without glue because the joints are long-grain to short-grain joints. The only reason to make them square is that it makes easier to set the fence later in the construction process. Well, here are three Popular Woodworking projects to choose from – and they even go on sale this Wednesday.
I suppose you could attribute it entirely to Mario – he is pretty cool, actually – but it is a great example of an updated classic! When you pick the material to build your shooting board, just keep in mind the more stable the material the less fussing and adjusting in the future.
I’m sorry to hear that your experience with Chuck was less than what you expected but you need to realize that Chuck is human just like you and me.
He really is a great guy with a vast knowledge of woodworking and is very willing to share that knowledge with you if you ask.
