Roubo Inspired Bench #5: Getting closer - finally getting the slabs on top of the bench, & an orange dog or 2

333 days ago by jusfine | 8 comments »

The rails have been assembled, legs attached to the cabinet, a little clean up and should be ready to mortise for the slabs. It appears I have some corrupted images on my memory card, so may not be able to post any of the photos of mortising or attaching the slabs through the rails with the SPAX type screws. Slabs have been fastened to the top with one screw at each end, there is a 2” gap between the two sections. I wanted a wide enough space to be able to use a Be...

2377 days ago by Blake | 4 comments »

I have never quite been sure what the rule of thumb is for floating panels in box tops. I am relying on some of you seasoned folks on this one. I know there are a lot of different opinions on the application of floating panels. When is it necessary? When is it not? Are there certain sizes, widths, woods, or thicknesses that you can get away with without floating the panel? I have not made enough boxes to know from experience.
