    Incra LS

    Has anyone any experience of the Incra LS router setup?
  2. Likewise What a great idea for a project and thanks to Marc for all of the techniques we have all learn along the way. What's next I wonder? Oh and Venus says Twit-twoooo to Marc.
  3. Indeed I made contact with Dr Freud and he said that there was some confusion in my mind. He said that some people saw venus as an owl which for the poor thing was terribly upsetting and he suggested that i did something to avoid such future misunderstandings. Mr Freud the tool man was also a bit peeved with the Veritas hardware adorning Venus and suggested that replacing this with some custom pegs might, as it were, kill two birds with one stone. So out with the old metalwork and a quick spin on the lathe to make the new pegs. Ahhh.....that's my Venus di Roubo. no question. cc
  4. ah..you think mine is more willendorf than de milo then..?
  5. interesting. what do they say there is never a unique idea.... anyway appreciation of the human form goes back a little while. Praxiteles started it cc
  6. probably something with a twig. cc
  7. Dead woman update. She takes shape - oh yes more pics on the blog CC
  8. i would set the legs so that the out of square bits are proud. Take your router jig for flattening the top and then square the legs all the way down using the same technique as for the top. There you go - two uses from one jig allready. Marc said it would come in handy. (or you could always just plane them) cc
  9. a good question. and one that only webmaster can answer. It's a JPEG but wont let me upload saying error 403. That must be a big one. hooray. just re imported into iphoto and here it is. compoootahs who knows what they are doing.
  10. To personalise my Roubo I am going for something different. Here is the sketch for Dead Woman......Hey we need not be sexist and just stick to men in the shop. Anyway I shall post the results on the blog when I get round to it later at the weekend. Anyine with any other ideas for this interchangable part of the bench?? CC
  11. TRADITIONAL TOOL CHEST There is a Veritas plan out there which I based mine on. There are an interesting mix of techniques Whaddaya think? CC
  12. Managed to miss it anyway. so will look forward to the video to follow!! CC
  13. can anyone point me in the right direction for signing in for the live meeting today. TA
  14. told you there would be another one. top tip. when aligning the nuts in the removable hardware in the leg rails drill the bolt hole first, put the bolt in and align the position you need to drill the hole for the nut. it is surprising how far off the hole can wander as you need to drill it free hand for a good portion. that lesson I learned after hole number one. which to get over the fact that the two holed didn't align means I have a slightly bigger hole for the nut. you're always learning.
