Roubo Workbench Part 3

December 19, 2008

I cut the mortises in the legs to receive the stretchers using my drill press and a forestener bit.

I squared off the mortise with a chisel.

I don’t have any picture of the base assembly.  My digital camera died (remember when Nikon used to make quality cameras?).

I used the drawbore method that Chris S. describes in his book.  It worked like magic!  The best part is not having to use clamps.
