Re: Hybrid Roubo Build...

So with our little white slippers in place, I wheeled the rolling table out of the way, swept the floor and assembled the legs. Gave it a little wiggle to see how sturdy it was... DIDN'T BUDGE!!! I...

Re: Hybrid Roubo Build...

A last minute thought occurred to me. I needed something to put under the legs to keep the snow melt from the car away from them. I seem to remember Jim using Delrin under his bench's legs...

Re: Hybrid Roubo Build...

That bench has been moved to the basement workshop. It was just too nice to hammer up and drip glue all over. I took the Moxon vise off to use in the shop (with the new Roubo) and finished the end of...

Re: Hybrid Roubo Build...

Re: Hybrid Roubo Build...

Drilling the upper rail to attach the legs to the top. This is one of those steps I should have done before glue up. Had to use a right angle drill to fit under the lower rail. Was actually surprised...
