At this point of the build I had a big decision to make, the original Roubo design details a through mortice and Tenon and sliding dovetail. Although I’m a carpenter I haven’t marked out a Tenon let alone a dovetail in over 20 years. My confidence in my joint cutting skills didn’t match my aspirations in keeping to the original design.I chickened out and decided that a single beefy mortice and tenon would do.Using a mortice gauge I acuarately marked the tenons in eac...
I’m a carpenter, I fit out kitchens, offices, cafes for a specialist joinery firm that runs a modest workshop.By chance they had overordered a batch of Spruce pine and had no immediate use for it.After a brief chat with the boss and workshop manager, 7 of those boards were wheeled to a massive table saw, the legs, stretchers and top were cut to an oversize dimension and length, then surface planed and edged and then thicknessed.My intention was to hand build this bench over the Chri...
Create your own key rack so you never lose those keys again. If you don’t have a forge to heat up your metal hooks, you can use a propane torch.

The Design. The two-color concept gives me an idea of using two colors of wood that are contrasting. With the limitation of making contrast, a big board requires stripes motif or grilled motif to give the necessary symmetry of a solid wall. A diamond grill makes it so attractive with a background wall in it. The Wood. Since dull red Narra (from old floor parquet flooring) and a few strips of white board (probably a hard pine from crate) are available, the red and white grill ca...

I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...
