Post: RE: Bench Project

I really like it! Just curious as to whether the corners are going to pretty sharp if a person were to run into one of them? Not sure the aesthetic of rounded corners would look that great, though.

One thing to point out for my use, and this does not apply to everyone, just my opinion. One thing about a tail vice is it can limit using the end of the bench for cabinet carcasses and anything you w...

I used M&T to attach the top to the legs. It was not as hard as it seems. I inverted the top and the leg frame, traced around all four tenons, and removed much of the waster with a large forstner bit.

I, also, made a Roubo bench several years ago. I used SYP and I do not have any regrets using that particular wood. It has held up very well and like Bill said above, it is plenty hard. I love the loo...

Would electricity waste energy (amps?) in seeking 18% moisture at a slightly greater depth over the 14% moisture between the probes for less resistance? Moisture is present either way.

Being partial to items made in the USA, the Ligno-Scanner D by Lignomat is an attractive option, but the cost is a bit high at $210. https://lignomatusa.com/product/ligno-scanner-d-pinless-moisture...

That was an excellent video. Nice shop too. Cleaning up old tools and making new tools look a bit older is so much fun.
