    (Sigh)....Roubo time

    Got the slabs dimensioned. Holy god that was some work. I like to live in a world where I feel that I just did the real grunt work. The rest is much more manageable. I feel really really good. And tired.

    Thanks fellas. Trying to tame woodworker OCD here.

    Hey! Hit a snag in the old workflow department....namely, I started back to work. I teach school, so getting my sea legs back takes till about Labor Day. Anyhoo....in the process of initial flattening of the top and squaring up. I'm just a hair under 4".....3 15/16 to be specific. How do I account for this down the road? That is...where will this come back to bite me? Hope y'all are enjoying your holiday!
  4. Nooooooooo. I feel for you.

    Whole lotta scraping goin on. If I understood the videos correctly, I only need to flatten one end of the underside? Wife called today and asked if I had done any laundry....” no, sweetie....I....haven’t been able to get to it?”

    Cool. Got the front in the clamps now. Will begin scraping and flattening soon.

    Glued up the back slab. Has anyone had experience doing the initial flattening with a router sled? I made one recently for a slab table, and thought it would be a good way to go. Thoughts? My wife is out of town for 5 days, and I can usurp her sacred ground that I am not allowed to keep crap in. If she reads this one day, “I’m so sorry honey. There really wasn’t another choice. And I want to buy you something.” Tomorrow we glue the front slab and work on flattening.
  8. I’m in a similar boat glue scraping wise!

    We are good to go. The ringer is helping me glue up Saturday. 8 hours total on milling, broken up over a couple of days. There was a lot of time spent “figgerin” and some union smoke breaks. Got the boards ripped down. The bandsaw got quite the workout. Tomorrow is more milling. Jointer/planer love fest 2018!

    Auriou tools closing?

    Of COARSE you made the pun. It’s FINE.

    Auriou tools closing?

    Yeah...they are still for sale, I just don’t know how long. Knowing how woodworkers get about rarity, I thought I would let the fam know here. If you ever wanted one, might wanna grab one. I also didn’t know if Marc had any capability of helping out if this was his kind of thing.
  12. Hey all, I got an email saying that Auriou tools was struggling financially, and they are looking to crowdfunding to help fix old machines and train new employees. I have heard great things about their rasps in particular, and I know Marc likes them. Do you all have any info on this? I am just putting this out there for y’all because it seems legit, and I would hate to see a quality company go under. Here is a link to the funding page....a lot of it is in French, but there are English bits as well. I apologize if this doesn’t adhere to forum posting rules. https://www.tudigo.co/don/sauvons-le-savoir-faire-auriou

    Thanks fellas....let me see what the ringer has to say, and I will get back to you.

    Well....I had to call in "the ringer." My woodworking buddy in town is a North Bennet Street grad, and he's coming in for a "workbench consultation" Sunday to see if he can help me get straightened out (haha). I will keep y'all posted.
