How To Make A Deadman To Fit Almost Any Work Bench

How To Make A Deadman To Fit Almost Any Work BenchIf your like me, many of your projects require long pieces of lumber, sometimes up to 12' in length.
Most of the time a quick touch-up with a #7 Joiner plan does the trick.This removable deadman was made from hardwood, and a clamp screw I removed from a Harbor Freight
12” F-Clamp that was slipping. If your take one of these apart you'll know why they slip.I sawed the screw off the clamp, threaded it into the Deadman and shaped a piece of hard maple to replace the Handle.This Deadman allows me to plane or chamfer boards or panels up to 20” in width and as long as my bench can handle.I'd like to thank my L.J. buddy The Saw Dust Whisperer (Dustin Lung) for the Cumaru wood that he found in the trash from a deck and fence build of one of our neighbors. I don't think I'll be building anything soon with that stuff again. If you work with it you better have some very sharp tools.I'd especially like to thank L.J. buddy Jim Jakosh author and builder of 873 projects and still counting, for his indispencable help and advice on how to remove the clamp screw and attach it to the new handle. He's got to be one of the best tool makers I know.I treaded the clamp screw to the maple handle and epoxied it and drilled a hole through the handle and thread.I used a ball peen hammer to peen the brass pin to the handle. I didn't have a brass pin so used a #8 brass screw.There's a Youtube video called (Handle pin Peening Techniques-Daniel Warren Master Smith) I used to learn how to peen the pin.Cutting the dado for the bottom clamp holder.Getting ready to screw and glue the parts together.Cutting off the screw plug covers.Peening one end of the brass screw/pin with the round end of a ball-peen hammer.
Use tape around the pin to avoid marks from the hammer.
I placed a Masons chisel and a wedge of wood under it to act like an anvil.Clamping the Deadman to the bench. When I made my bench I allowed for a 3” over hang on the sides and ends for clamping.It works great.

Shaker Night Stands

Shaker Night StandsShaker Night Stand.
I made two of these as bedside tables for my daughter. It was my first furniture project, prior projects have just been setting up my garage furniture. There was some mounting pressure to “so when are you going to make something?” They are a very traditional Shaker Night Stand, the timber is salvaged quarter sawn Elm from Melbourne University, which I was lucky enough to help mill. The drawer fronts are a veneer of Figured Maple from a piece that I was able to bring home with me in my suitcase after attending the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine. The Elm has been oiled with Danish Oil, and the drawers French Polished – my first attempt.
