    Drill bits

    Hi all, I’m looking for a large set of good drill bits for wood. Clean holes. Brad point and twist bits included would be nice I’d like multiples in each size, especially the smaller bits. Any recommendations? id prefer not to pay over 50-70$$. Thank you!

    They don’t tighten things up, but they keep things from getting loose, if that makes sense. If you build something with the through tenons, put the glue only on the part of the tenon tenon that lives in the mortise. In my case, this was the inch closest to the shoulder of the tenon If you put is on the mortise, cleaning up the tenon will be difficult. Same if you just slather up the whole tenon

    It’s a Coffee Table

    The top is two 11" boards. The wood that I built this from was 12 feet long, 12 inches wide, 6/4 and completely clear. really beautiful stuff. I got it from a local hardwood flooring manufacturer for like $2 a board foot. The giant hamster is a 19 year old cat. She mostly just hangs out on the couch.

    The wedges turned out perfectly. I cut them close on my table saw, and then fit them individually with my smoother. Easy peasy.

    Ribbon cutting board

    Thanks Coop, I’ve only made 1. Maybe beginners luck. I might make a few more for Christmas gifts, so we might find out. Where did you have problems with the two that weren’t up to snuff?

    I’m almost over 40. Dope is a superlative from 90s rap music. meaning better than good/incredible/dope. My kids talk like 90s rappers. Quality parenting.

    Ribbon cutting board

    My son had an incredible 2nd grade teacher. I made this for her. These are surprisingly easy to make once the process is clear. Hard maple with walnut, Purple Heart and santos mahogany ribbons. Quick fun project.

    To clarify, this design is based on the Kigumi table Ishitani built in his YouTube video. That guy is dope. More pics:

    It’s a Coffee Table

    Made from Santos mahogany, which is hard, heavy, and criminally underrated as a furniture wood.
  12. I would guess there was some glue that didn't get cleaned up that's preventing it from staining evenly. you would need to sand it down to remove the glue.

    Plans For a Roubo workbench

    I did my own. It's a super simple design. Very easy to figure out without paying for plans.

    We can do it on my bandsaw. I'll be over there this weekend packing the shop. I can only resaw 6 inches, but that slab looks like pretty straight grain, so you could rip it into 6 inch strips, resaw those, and glue them back together for the top. If we're careful where we cut, the glue lines will be invisible. Chris
