This is the final of the base to the undersides of my split top Roubo bench build. Throughout the build I used a pair of Paul’s sawhorse design which I had constructed just prior. In this photo, you can see all 400 lbs. of the bench resting on the horses.

Craftsman-style Tool Carrier by David Cracknell

Craftsman-style Tool Carrier by David Cracknell

I wanted to make this a soon as I saw Paul’s video come out. I started it in France on holiday. They sell oak in E20 planks in Brico Depot. I bought a few cheap tenon saw of 12tpi from the store to cut the dovetails but they came out ok.The handle bar is made from a piece of pine, but this week I finished the tray with some tulip wood (poplar) that i had back in London. A splash of Danish and maybe some wax and brush to follow. Very happy with this. Thank you, Paul, for your skill sharing and infectious enthusiasm for fine, accurate work.

Workbench by Michael O'Brien

Workbench by Michael O’Brien

This is my work bench. It’s made from construction grade F17 hardwood (Vic Ash). It’s big and heavy, at just over 500 pounds. To deal with wood movement, the central core of the table (running lengthwise between the legs, and the end vise screws), is laminated MDF and Birch Ply. I then used half inch strips of Vic Ash as a “veneer” on the top and underside of the bench. I’ve been using it for almost one year, and its been excellent. I rarely need to move it, but when I do I use a car jack and a set of dollies. I use this method for moving all my shop machinery.


Tool Tote by Ben Ellenberger

This is cherry with an oak handle. I wanted to try doing a dovetailed box with compound angles. One side is vertical, the ends are set at one angle, and the other side is a slightly different angle.


Timber Frame Shed by D Boyle

Timber Frame Shed by D Boyle

Drawbored mortise and tenoned frame with wedged tenoned dovetailed tie beams. Made from green oak beams (which initially ruined my planes but quickly learned about tannins in green oak!). Set on a base from bricks I cleaned the mortar from and laid in English bond. Made a beetle/commander from a beam offcut based on Paul’s joiners mallet (also in picture) to persuade a few stubborn joints together. Wouldn’t have attempted anything like this without following Paul Sellers’ classes. All started with the workbench! Thanks and keep up the great work.


Shoe Tidy by Phil Amos

Carrying Tote by Tom Ray

Carrying Tote by Tom Ray

This tool tote was made from pine (except for the padauk highlight strip) that had been stored in my garage for 45 years! I knew I would use it someday. The tote has a removable top tray and room on the inside for another tray should I need one in the future. It should be large enough for my saws, planes, chisels, etc. There are a dozen drawbore mortise and tenons, two angled M&T’s for the handle, dovetails, and a dozen lineal feet of groove and tongue joints. The only tools I used in making this were backsaws, panel saw, plane, router plane, spokeshave, and an eggbeater drill. Handtools only: no electricity was consumed in the manufacture of this product!
