« Part 9: Mortise City Part 10 of Roubo series Part 11: Drawboring Day! »

Really starts to look like a bench tonight.

I did the dry fit on the long stretchers

Then I drilled out the drawboring holes.

Did my initial marking out.

I also twisted a pencil in the dot, to make sure I could see it well later.

I caught one shoulder not as tight as it should be! Time to pare a little bit.

And a final full dry fit to check everything is square. Since I had the top flipped over, I lined it up to see what i might look like. Upside down anyway.

Whoo hoo!

I have to agree that I have enjoyed every one of these so far. This is looking pretty good.
