This is my first project with my new Beast Master of a saw from Bad Axe Tool Works. Ever since I learned to cut this joint, known as a rising dovetail or Roubo’s Joint, I have been hungering to do a big one. This is a warm up to a new workbench I’m thinking of making myself. I have a little bit of nice size wood left over from this project and will do a short video showing how to layout and cut this impossible looking joint. The final pic shows one of the legs with the joint laid out and ready to cut. The red lines are necessary steps in laying out the joint, but don’t get cut.
The bench sits at the bottom of the stairs for people to sit on as they take off or put on their shoes.
