« Part 8: Metal Work Part 9 of Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench series Part 10: The Sliding Leg - Video »

Some of you may remember a previous post, where I was looking for someone to turn the handles required for the bench. Old Pete from the Australian Woodwork Forums answered the call.

The original handle brain storm.

The completed project, arrived in the mail today. The timber is Australian Blackwood. Pete, was more than generous, turned two alternate handles for the wheels, and two handles for the pins, and offered to re-make them if they don’t feel right. I do like the online woodworking community.
