You know that you’ve been building a Roubo workbench when you chop a 1-1/4″ wide, 4″-long and 3″-deep blind mortise and it’s comically easy.
Today I’m getting back into the swing of things on this Roubo workbench. My goal is to have the stretchers dry-fit into the legs by the end of the week. There are several things that could get in my way.
1. I have to do my taxes tomorrow. Yikes.
2. My day job. I’m exactly 37 e-mails (dang, now 38) behind, and I still need to write a feature story for the August 2010 issue.
3. It’s so nice outside that I might just strip buck naked and air out all my crevasses. It has been a long and malodorous winter.
Stay tuned to this blog or, in the case of No. 3, your local police band radio.
