    I like it too. 3/4″ bits seem the hardest to find. I have a drawer full of bits I have to go through and see which ones are good and which ones have to go. Yard sale finds. The one I am using still had the wax coating on it from original manufacture.

    I bought some bits from the Restore while ago. I was hoping to find a 3/4″ bit too. I haven’t looked them over yet. I know 1 or 2 of them are garbage. As somebody has modified them. They need to be cleaned up before I used them. I paid about $1.00 a piece for them.

    Same here. I have bought boxes of junk that had some in and some of them are just garbage. It will take me a day to go through all mine and sort them and figure out what to keep and what to toss. I have some that someone ground the cutting ear off one side and wonder what the thought process was in that. Some days you just have to wonder about people.

    Your right Jim. I say that all the time.

    Someone mentioned router sled?

    I reached my skill limit with the hand tools. I thought I was beat. I took some time away and went back at it with a tried and true method. I also show how to make sure the rails on a router sled are all hunky dory too.

    That is a very nice piece of work, Jim. I like the string trick for leveling the frame.

    That is a lot of hard work, it makes me appreciate the skills of guys who had to do everything by hand. Nice perseverance.

    Thanks for the comments guys. I was thinking doing it by hand was the only way, after being away from it for a couple of days it dawned on me to use electrons and the sled. Perhaps the feed of ribs helped my thinking process.

    The ribs looked delicious.

    I was waiting for you to put the slab back down on the garage floor, to show that it was indeed flat.

    It was nice to see you didn’t have to get the chainsaw out and cut the slab up for firewood. I am sure you felt like it.

    I shot and put together a short one today to answer a viewer question on my other saw bench. These things are as handy as a pocket in a shirt. I use them all the time, including if I just need a place to sit, or to reach something up high.

    Both benches would be right at home in any shop. Very well thought out, solid, hard working tools.

    More work on the Roubo. I should have called this one “How to turn 2 weeks of hard labour into 12 minutes”…lol. Man, the hours of clips that didn’t make it.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    I think I worked up a sweat just watching. That’s a lot of hand work, especially with the heat we had in July this year.

    I would say I almost did too. That is alot of work. I really like that bench top. Looks like you got some nice lumber for the rest of your bench.

    What is the reason you only sanded the bench top too 80 grit?

    Well, this is where I’m at with the bathroom as of today. Fun weekend so far! I hope to get the insulation and floor in today and order the shower tub. Which I will be looking for advice on installing. Any tips out there? Do I remove the drywall? The shower tub is one of those kits that come with the walls and tub. I think, from what I have seen, the tub gets attached to the studs, drywall above the tub (green board/ mould resistant) and then the “wall” sections get attached to that. Does that sound right? I know concrete board may be preferable, but there is a strict budget here….like no money at all…lol.
