Title: DIY...Walnut motorcycle service bench
Post by: trek97 on Jun 16, 2018, 18:52:11
This past winter working on Rachels 400 and Piglet taught me, MY KNEES AND BACK AREN'T GETTING ANY YOUNGER.
The wife said, "I needed a motorcycle bench."
Yada Yada,  She's right, I know.  But, I haven't got room for a BULKY and HEAVY motorcycle bench.

A couple weekends ago RicerwannaB and I spent an afternoon visiting the Wheels Through Time Museum in Maggie Valley NC.

Trying to soak it all in, walking past all the displays.
I wouldn't even have noticed... 
Thankfully RicerwannaB pointed out the neatest little antique service bench.  It looks to be Maple.  A very strong and light, stable hardwood.
I said, "I can re-create that!  I got a buddy with Black Walnut.  Also a very light, stable and strong hardwood."

So once home I contacted my buddy Tim. 
Told him I was looking at a Walnut bench project.  I dont care about knots and stuff. 
As its gonna be a work bench, Im not wanting the most desirable lumber. 
Dude, totally hooked me up.  He seemed excited about my project and happy to help.   8)

Tims got 2000 feet of Rough cut Walnut and Oak "seasoning" in his shed.
Since he's gotten into metal work these past couple years.  He's doing less wood projects.
Although he is currently prepping the "Good stuff" to sell at a local consignment shop.

We fired up his old planer and knocked the 1-1/8" boards down to 15/16". Looking at a finished sanded thickness of 7/8"

I got everything home now. 

And its all just roughed dimensions.  I will have to cut it all down to working sizes.

Im planing to Dado all joints and Tongue and groove the bench/ramp top.

It will be in 2 parts.  The base will separate from the bench/ramp top. 
That way I can just stand the two parts up in the corner of garage when Im not using it.

Thank you bud for pointing out the original bench to me.
Its funny cause I dont think we even discussed benches at all that weekend.
You just randomly pointed it out as we walked past.
I was too busy looking at the bikes.   ;)

Haha Thanks guys.    ::)  There may be a bit of trial going on here.  As Im trying to keep it as short as possible.
 The fulcrum is in the center.  The ramp end will be lighter than the worktop end.  So will have to add something ? to keep the ramp down for loading.
Also if the front tire of the bike breaks over the fulcrum, before the rear tire hits the ramp it will want to "teeter" up under the bike.
I engineered it to account for Cherry Bombs stretch.  And even the BMW will fit well.  The 7/8 walnut construction would handle the BMWs weight w out issue.
But no intentions of putting the BMW on it.  Unless I had a couple more hands and backs to roll the beast up there.

One thing I intend to learn on this build is "Checkering"

The Walnut ramp surface will be slick.  I dont want to do something tacky like non-skid adhesive sheets or paint.

And I always wanted to learn to "check" a rifle stock.  But never worked up the guts to put a file to a fine piece of wood.

So I intend to check a strip the full length of the ramp to add the non skid surface. 

By the time Im done hand filing the 3500 lines, I should be pretty skilled w the checkering files.  :o

This is what I use for that type of work.  But, I'm also a printmaker... http://www.imcclains.com/catalog/woodblocktools/namiseisetof6.html

That pin is what holds it up in the up and down position.  You'd be running a half moon with holes drilled to hold in various positions and a shaft for pivot.  I've actually built drawing tables that are designed exactly the same way. The drawing table just had a lot more holes because you want them to be used at different angles for different tasks.  I also have a couple of vintage drafting tables that are built like this...

Winner!  haha, Thats why I love DTT and you IRK !!!  You got my wheels turning...

I should be able to tighten them up just enough to hold the ramp in position.
Then once the weight of the bike breaks over pivot it will slide through the hinge and come down to rest on its own.

Not only, Keeping with, but actually adding too the "hipster" vintage look I'm planning for this thing.   ;D

Nice! Can't wait to see it finished.
I considered building a cantilever type bench when I did mine. Mainly because you don't need a ramp to load a bike on it. But I gave up on it because I couldn't come up with a solution to mount casters, and I wanted the ability to move it when needed.
Mine is like a milk crate bookshelf. It does it's job well, but it ain't much to look at.
Yours will be like fine furniture. Functional and elegant ;)

Sorry, I wasn't exactly clear in my comment. I couldn't come up with a solution to mounting wheels on the pivot base and on the rear support leg that would allow it to roll easily and not have the possibility of the support leg folding under while in motion. And since I'm not an engineer (nor do I play one on TV) and didn't want to drink all the beer it would take for me to figure out how to strengthen/reinforce the support leg, I went the less complicated route.

I did consider those for my "milkcrate bookshelf" bench though, and they would work well for moving only the bench around, but I wanted to be able to move bike and bench at the same time.
The drawback to those are, each caster supports 100lbs, for a combined total of 400lbs. When you lift one caster at a time, as those are designed to do, the bench is then being supported by only 3 casters (only 2 if/when it "teeters"). So now your overall caster/bench load capacity has just dropped by 25-50%. And unless your bench/bike combo weighs less than 200lbs, you've just exceeded the load capacity of the casters contacting the floor and likely damaged them.
When selecting casters/wheels for a project, you have to consider how many wheels will always be in contact with the floor at any given moment. If your floor is not smooth/level like finished concrete, you run the possibility of the object "teetering" on only two of the wheels/casters, and need a load capacity on each wheel/caster that'll accommodate the load it's supporting. For my purposes, I needed/wanted the casters to support 600lbs (CB750 (the heaviest bike I own) + bench weight + some leeway). Because I'm rolling on top of a plywood decked floor, the chances of it "teetering" on only 2 casters was a certainty, so I went with 300lb each capacity casters.
I couldn't find those style casters with that high of a load capacity that were reasonably priced for my "budget bench". I also came to the conclusion that if my casters had to support all the weight anyway (to move it), there was no reason/need to have them fold up. So I just bought locking casters to keep the bench from moving when I didn't want it to.
Title: Re: Walnut service bench
Post by: irk miller on Jun 22, 2018, 19:08:19
That's a lot of words to basically explain that you didn't know what you were doing LOL. ;) You only need two lifting casters on one side.  The other side can have locking, swivel and/or non swivel casters.  You build the base so it's level in the drop position.  An inch of rake while you move it is no big deal.  To get both to work together, you run a bar between the two.  They make them as paired units that work that way or you can just adapt those.  But yeah, with weight capacity comes cost.  Those Amazon deals will probably do fine with a 300lb motorcycle and a bench that weight no more than 200lbs.  But, if you're trying to be cheap you probably shouldn't be looking at casters anyway.  In my studio building days, i built a lot of work tables and benches that had to be mobile and handle significant weight.  I've used those type lifting casters a lot.  This is another setup (not my design) I did for work table expected to handle up to a ton. The jacks are like $15 at Harbor Freight...

Post by: Redbird on Jun 22, 2018, 19:57:54
Well that pic would've been helpful a couple of years ago!!

Yes, pairing them up will cure the lifting/teetering load capacity issue. And if it's kept on a level surface you won't have to worry about the moving/teetering load capacity issue either.

I toyed with the idea of linking them together as well, but with an "over center" type setup similar to a motorcycle rear wheel lift (race stand). But not having the ability or capability to weld, that went out the window pretty quick :P
And No, I didn't know what I was doing. I so rarely do :P
Generally I just dive in and learn as I go. I figure if I fuck something up, I'll just unfuck that part next time ;D

Are you using a checkering tool, or a carving tool?  A key when checkering is to make multiple passes, and don't try to do your run all at once.  It's almost like sketching with a pencil pushing the tool back and forth as you run your line.  But it has to be a saw type checkering tool.  File type only work by pushing. Until you train your hand, you can use a good straight edge and an exacto blade make your initial line, then run your checkering tool in the groove.

But you just cant say no to the dude, he's just too dang good lookin'.  ;D

Finally, got up early and set up router for mortices...

The first 9 footer went pretty damned great.  The second one started out shaky and only got worse. 

The blade had slipped in the chuck.  So I tried to tighten...wouldnt budge...loosen...still wont budge....EXPLODED THE FUCKIN MOTOR LOCK!!!

Tore it apart.  Removed chunks of plastic and steel bits.  Cut the locks safe switch out and re-wired.  Got the bit out. 

Re-installed and cutting went well after that.  But now its too hot to work.  So hope to finish ALL mortices this evening.

You can see the shaky spots in second board but w some work it will be OK. 

May cut mortice a bit over size and glue a shim in then re-cut mortice nice.

You could always dado, like you did the other bits.  Or multiple passes moving the fence in increments.  Just have to go beyond your endpoint to account for the curve of the blade. (If you're worried about it)

I'm procrastinating on doing the chopper seat.  But, no intentions to machine sew it.  I want to do hand leather work, instead.

I'm procrastinating on doing the chopper seat.  But, no intentions to machine sew it.  I want to do hand leather work, instead.

Luckly the wiggly parts went below my line.  So I reset my guide board and c-clamps.  The "top" cut is pretty straight and on my line.

So few if any of those wiggles will show.  They are on the underneath of work deck.  Ill just make a second pass to clean that up smooth. 

Then cut a 3/8x1/2" strip to glue in.  And I will be back on track.

Excited to see your leather work.   8)

Seat came out great my man, much appreciated. You're a lifesaver. I started removing the POR-15 from the 360 tank last night only a couple more loose ends to tie up now.

Bench is looking great. The hand router can have a bit of a learning curve but its one of my favorite woodworking tools..just make sure that the collet is TIGHT! I hate those motor lock routers, even though using wrenches a pain you know you can get them tight (my old craftsman router mounted to a table would never get tight enough to stop the blade from slipping with motor lock, i think there was some 'give' in the plastic).

HF fixed base router is around $50 and its been a workhorse for me.

Thanks bud,  Iím glad the seat will work out for you.  Post a pic once itís stretched and installed.

I can not imagine failed tank sealer is any fun at all. 

Thanks for the router input.  I will stop in HF as I can sort of make it on my trip home without much trouble.

Well I didn't stop and get a new router.  But this pos is working better now.

Also, Out of frustration the other day, completely brain farted I had to make a second pass on the mortice as my bit is 3/4 and boards are 15/16.

So that in itself took care of most of the wiggle spots. 

Anyways I made a short 1/4 run and will add shim and finish it flush and that takes care of the bad routing.

now all boards fit together nicely w just a touch of wiggle room for glue.

Cut the remaining mortices this morning.

Dry fit the base together a piece of 2"x 10.5" Oak as the fulcrum.

(http://www.dotheton.com/gallery/11494-080718134946-40142172.jpeg)

I was thinking of something a little more substantial for the center stand to rest on. 

Dug an old piece of 2"x 11" Walnut for this. Nice that it will match the rest of the work top.

(http://www.dotheton.com/gallery/11494-080718134946-40151253.jpeg)

A last minute mortice to fit the 2".
 
(http://www.dotheton.com/gallery/11494-080718134946-4016430.jpeg)

Then one last freaking mortice for the end piece.

a little late now, but heres a handy tip on glue ups;
lay some masking tape down where you don't want your glue to go, once it dries you just peel up the tape. VERY handy on inside corners where it is difficult to remove dried glue, saves time and looks better than a sanded corner.

watching this with interest!

Sonics, super secret recipe...Dark Tung oil  https://www.walnutwoodworks.com   https://www.facebook.com/WalnutWoodWorks/

And I will add wipe on poly finish.

I used it on both the walnut workmate top and cabinet I made.

As cool as it would be and as much as I would like too do it.

Almost forgot the dowels.  I think 18 per side w 5 on the end cap.

That Gorilla glue is great for this.  The dowels were a TIGHT fit and even still just a smidge still cam bubbling up to the top.

So, will my chopper fit on it?

Possibly, 50" from front axel to rear of engine or center stand is max I would put on it.
Loading it alone...It may hold something a bit longer but I wouldn't chance it. 
As long as the engine is "mostly" forward of the pivot, it could work.
With a buddy to help hold the front from tipping back, until situated and locked down.  Yes definitley longer.

Along w a small safety prop under the ramp end.

After some reading,  Ill do another few coats of oil. 

In a couple weeks Tung oil will cure hard.  I can then buff it and apply Shellac or just leave it as is.

Levi's shed...  bro... dude... do you have any concept of Levi's shed?  There are SOOO many things there!  Things of wonder and awe, things of dread and fear, things of mystery and of dire importance to national security.  If you can survive the strip search (by Navy Seals), the national security background check, the blood test, and the DNA background check you'll be allowed to enter the inter-sanctum.  After you push aside the door that's disguised to look like a pile of old motorcycle tires you enter the elevator that will take you 100 feet straight down.  You put on the scuba tanks and dive through a water-filled tunnel only to find another Seal team waiting... Are you sure you don't want to just put a HF Predator on your board tracker and be done with it?
I can't believe you gave away the secret to how to get into my secret lair...


Poor Eric is gonna be disappointed to realize that it's a one car attached garage with barely enough room to walk lol

No worries mate, even with that tiny bit of fact, nobody knows the super-secret location so all is still safe.  By the way, I heard that your shipment of alligators has arrived so you can change your security level back to A+++ after losing that pair who ate an intruder, got sick, and died.

Let me know when he and the lovely Lady Rachel are going to come over and I may try to trot down and say howdy.

While I building cabinet shelves for Rachel and waiting for glue to dry. 

I used scraps of walnut to make a matching stool.  Swivel seat adjusts from 17" - 22"

I had used all of my walnut dowels on the bench. 

Luckily I had enough 3/8" brass rod left over from my rifle building days.

Cut 2" lengths and randomly scored to create a mechanical lock once glued in.

2" purple gel pad wrapped in leather seat.  Nice and squishy, cant feel the walnut board underneath it at all.

That will make work easier on you. One suggestion - casters for the stool. The wife brought homes a low stool on casters that her doctors were tossing. I use the dickens out of it.

Thanks guys.  Iíve got a box of old casters, somewhere in my garage and I have considered it.  But at the time I just want the motherfíer done.  So maybe later.

Oh and Justin the new pantry is awesome.

Also, It took me a while recall, but once I walked into the garage and glanced at the stool.

I didn't do castors because I can lift the seat and cylinder out and use it as a step stool.

For extra footing to help me balance when I put the bike on its center stand.
