« Part 16: Over the Hump! Part 17 of Roubo-Moxon Bench Build series Part 18: Workbench Eve »

Phase 1 is complete. The bench is mostly flat, and is mostly level. I could talk about the various parts of the top (and the bench in general) that aren’t great, but then I think,

“If I was reading the blog of some struggling woodworker who rarely gets shop time and builds a Roubo/Moxon workbench and then complains about the various imperfections of what is essentially just a ginormous wooden tool, I’d yell at him to shut up and be content and start making stuff!”

So I’m content. Enough. Next I’ll take my #7 plane over the whole thing and then comes the smoother.

Hes taken the kitchen for his workshop and she gets the garage. The beer is an arms length away, perfect. Looks good so far.

Wow, what a beheamoth! Nice and strong, extra heavy, and level (enough). Well done!
