    Anybody that builds a bench like that has a little 'purist' in their blood. Its really starting to take shape Frank.

    Default June 8th Update

    It's been over a month since I last worked on the bench, but earlier this week some heavy rain forced me back into the shop for a couple of hours.

    21) I am now drilling the dog holes. This is being done using recently purchased jig that keeps the drill at a 90 degree angle (kind of a poor man’s drill press). The jig is OK but somewhat flimsy for my heavy drill. It needs to be clamped into postion and clamping can be a bit tedious. Complicating things further is that, at the same time, I am clamping a sacrifice board to the underside of the bench in order to reduce tearout when the auger bit emerges on the underside. Here are a copule of photos:

    With all the setup, the task is going to take me a long time. So far, I have worked at the job for almost two hours and only drilled 4 holes. About 20 holes remain to be drilled and I expect things to speed up a bit –but not a great deal.
    Cheers,
    Frank

    Jeez Frank! Gotta admire your desire for accuracy.
    I simply grabbed my drill and eyeballed how vertical I was holding the drill with a couple of small squares at 90 degrees to each other sitting adjacent to the hole.
    Came out pretty good. I didn't care about the underside.
    Are your holes going to remain round or you going to square them up later? Mine are left round and I use either the LV brass dogs or dowels with a rubber chair leg bumper to stop it from falling through the hole.

    I could not trust myself to be that accurate. My Dad tought me always to finish the undersides and backs of things, so that's what I always do.

    Mine are going to be left round. I already own a few LV bench pups and hoild downs that are designed for 3/4 inch holes.

    Nicely Done so far Frank,


    I remember the epic trail I followed to build my Shaker bench, so I can apppreciate the work and energy required to build the one you are making....some green tools slip in and out of some of the shots too I noticed..
    Take care,
    Jim
