« Part 13: Hey, Now That Almost Looks Like a Workbench. Part 14 of Roubo-Moxon Bench Build series Part 15: Somebody Kick Me in the Pants »

Did the final glueup today. The bench is now completely assembled! My birthday is Monday, so by then I want to have the top flattened. A few other things I still need to do:

  • make the crochet
  • make the leg vise
  • finish it (BLO)
  • install a shelf and maybe a drawer
  • make the Moxon double-screw vise

But once I have the top flattened, I’ll consider the bench to be done, really. Picture to come at that time!

Good progress, lately.
I hope you’ll be able to get the top really flat before Monday, if you intend to cut birthday cake on it.

Haha! I don’t know if I’ve said it here, but my workshop is in our extra-large kitchen! (I tell my wife her kitchen is in my workshop.) But I plan to have the strictest no-food-on-the-workbench rule there is.

I did say to my wife tonight, “It’s gonna be so hard not to put stuff on that, isn’t it?”
