This past week I returned to my bench and mocked up a sewing table to be made from a wonderful plank of narra we picked up from our friends at Gilmers in the fall of 2006. The highly prismatic rich gold color darkens with age and is easily worked with fine edges and will work well for the marquetry planed for the top, or so I thought.
Follow along as I build a version of the Roubo workbench based on one by Chris Schwarz and another by Roy Underhill, who writes about the bench in his new book, "The Woodwright’s Guide: Working Wood with Wedge & Edge."
Corners with kerfs. What a concept! Take an in-depth look at this creative technique for making a continues sided box from a single board. See the process start to finish with photos and how-to directions.
