I'll show my SketchUp procedure for making detail connections of a breadboard to a table top. This is the exploded view of the design followed by a top down X-ray orthographic with dimensions. Step 2: With the Tape Measure tool place guidepoints or guidelines at locations for the tenon extensions of the joint. Step 3: Copy the completed joinery on the right side of the top, and move the copy to the left end. Step 4: Connect a blank breadboard component (no joinery, just a plank) to the end of the table top. Step 5: You could create the groove and mortises in the breadboard blank separately from its connection to the top, but this requires careful measurements and placement of many guidelines.

I finished up the Joinery bench just in time to make a few test cuts then pack it up in the truck for the trip to Woodworking in America. In my last post I had just finished up the top and legs and did a dry fit to see how it looked.
The work surface is roomy and the tool tray has a few additions to hold my layout tools and my two most commonly used joinery saws. One thing that needs no further consideration is the use of the Benchcrafted Moxon Vise on the front. I covered the basics of this bench but if you want to learn more about it’s construction, (all done by hand) or want to learn more about building and designing the right bench for your work, then you might consider joining The Hand Tool School.


DISCLAIMER: Any posts on LJ are posted by individuals acting in their own right and do not necessarily reflect the views of LJ. This design, while using tenon pegs,  allows for seasonal movement of wood which is a main consideration for breadboards. After choosing Edit Component (for the breadboard), using the Line tool trace over the tongue location on the edge face of the breadboard.
I can see and feel the change in dimension on the ends of the breadboard depending on what time of year it is. The results of intersection here are very much related to the flush position of the breadboard flat against the edge of the top piece.
The Intersect operation won't modify the breadboard component unless the component is open for editing.

I’m still considering this design to be a pseudo prototype and need to spend more time working with it before casting a final verdict. I will be adding some more things like a chisel rack in the future but I need to see what I really need first.
This vise had me at hello, but when I integrated it into a fixed bench top set at the perfect height for my build, it is joinery nirvana. The first half of Semester 3 will be dedicated to this topic with quite a few videos not only on this bench, but many alternative techniques all done by hand. I can tell that the differential movement is taking place, and is working properly to avoid splitting the top.
Thanks to the thousand woodworkers who stopped by at WIA to take a look and share some observations.


The fit of the trestle through tenons into the stretcher mortises needs to be exact so that the whole bench doesn’t wobble. I made a few drawers for a commission I’m working on last night and my reasons for building this bench became very clear. The key is finding the right chassis or blank slate to start with to allow that refinement. There were more than a few saw cuts made and dovetails chopped on the top to give me a good sample of how the bench will perform when it counts.
Once that was fit, I marked the locations for the peg mortises, chopped them, then tapered some small blocks of White Oak to make wedges. Most often I work on bench hooks without securing the work piece so using holdfasts is not critical on this surface. Once these wedges are pounded in place, the base tightens up completely to a solid platform. The Moxon is so smooth and strong that a quick spin of the wheels is all that is needed to lock the work piece in place. Fortunately, it will be rare to exert force on the bench that way outside of sawing tenons. I have some ideas for a few simple accessories that will eliminate using bench hooks and instead turn the top into a bench hook of sorts with flip down saw fence and planing stops.
