Seditious Canary’s Workbench

This is my mostly finished, mostly operational workbench. The tool board is 3/4" cabinet grade poplar with a few coats of shellac. It’s mounted to a 2"x4" frame with Titebond and 3/8" poplar doweling so there are no screws to interfere with mounting tools. The tools on horizontal part of the bench are going to have holes drilled for them to stick into the piece of Indian Rosewood molding at the bottom of the tool board. I also need to trim out the sides and top of the tool board in Red Oak, skin the back with 1/2" cabinet grade birch, trim out the sides and front of the lab top, run electric, build and hang lighting, then shellac all the remaining wood.

The work bench itself is a Craftsman which I trimmed the top down to fit the work space. I also flush mounted t-nuts to fasten the MDF top to the bench frame using 6 each 1/4"x20 bolts so I can remove the lab top without worrying about the MDF getting stripped out. Then I used a tube of Silicon caulk to mount the lab top I got from Second Use to the MDF. The lab top was salvaged from a local Seattle high school.

The Wilton bench vice is mounted with 1/2"x13 stainless bolts and t-nuts. This was the part which I was the most concerned about mounting correctly. I used 14mm diamond hole saws to drill through the lab top. The holes for the lab top and the MDF came out dead on with the bench vice base. I made a footprint out of 3/4" plywood to protect the lab top from the vice and added a few coats of shellac to before bolting the whole thing down (35 foot pounds of torque per bolts).

Each leg of the bench is also sitting on a 2"x6" to raise it up some and keep it from sinking into the carpet. The lab top is 39" tall from the floor.

The picture was taken using my Park Stand Uni Pod.

    I got this siren since I am that kind of guy that likes to make noise so everyone knows “I’m home”

    I got it, installed it and used it.

    Animal sounds: average. I’d give the frog and the rooster 5 stars. The others get a 3 star rating.

    Sirens: Of the 10 sirens, you get 4 that sound like ambulance, police car and fire truck. The rest are the 6 same sounds any standard car alarm comes integrated with.

    50 tunes: they play in the same order again and again. There is no way to select the one you want. The fun side is you turn it on and your car sounds like the Ice Cream car. Two days ago I was in a car jam and the lady in the car next to me was very upset. I started playing the music and got the stinky eye from her, but she eventually calmed down as the music progressed (I called this the Tasmanian Devil effect).

    This item says you can use it as an announcer, but unfortunately mine lacked the promised microphone.

    Overall, it’s a fun device but I’d rather not have sold my previous Tarzan siren…

    This thing is lots of fun. I like driving through the crowded parts of down town Atlanta and putting the loudspeaker on the sound of the frog croaking. Also, I like rolling up on crack heads and flipping on the police siren for a second…..that’s funny.

    The bad thing is that the wiring is not very long to connect the speaker to the box, so you are limited to where you can install the thing.

  3. I would love to ride a bike round! The problem, however, is that automobile
    drivers here are very careless. If I rode a bike, I would be killed in a
    week!
