« Part 7: Woof Woof! Part 8 of Roubo series Part 9: Mortise City »

Been a while since the photos hit. I didn’t take photos of everything, once I really got moving along.

I roughed out the end cap tenons with my TS55.

Whacked the waste with a hammer, made a pass with the chisel, then went to town with LN 60.5R

Began to rough out waste from my vise end end-cap.

I probably won’t bother with the other end cap until the bench is built. I need to finish this end cap to complete the tail vise, which I want to do while the bench is flipped over.

Looking good so far.

Fitted out the vise hardware, mortised the runners a bit.

Started in on the legs. Cut out the hole for the vise screw, and mortised in the nut a bit.

Drilled the holdfast holes and tested them out. I ended up counterboring a 1” deep hole before I got any traction, even after sanding the holdfast.
