no previous part Part 1 of Roubo bookstand series Part 2: Chopping the "hinge" »

My Furniture Guild is doing a group build of a roubo book stand. A small slab of walnut yielded two of these blanks. It is all milled and squared and thcknessed. Then I layed out the ogives top and bottom. Then layed out the knuckle, drilled one corner and cut slots with a scrole saw.
