I’ve been doing a lot of work on my Roubo bench this month, leveling the top (both sides) with hand planes, shopping mortises with a hammer and chisel, etc.

The other day my wife noticed that my arms look more muscular! Woo-hoo! ;)

Sounds to me like your wife may want a new kitchen table!

Don, she’s got a list of new things she wants me to make her that is big enough to cover a kitchen table—trust me!

Every once in a while, I’ll get very impractical requests. “Can you build me an armoire this weekend?”, etc.

Maybe if we used power tools, we could do the armoire-in-a-weekend thing.
