Got some finish on it and put back together. Still have to do the shelves and gap stop. 

I havent updated this in a while, but much progress has been made due to being shutdown. I am fortunate in the fact that I can work from home, counting my lucky stars on that. With no commute and no w

Jealous that spot looks awesome. Though any campsite with a warm fire is awesome in my opinion.

Did you get an R-Pod? The wife finally got tired of tent camping so we pulled the trigger on this. I have to say, it was a much more relaxing time.

I knew when you bought that trailer that the Roubo project was going to take longer.  Where ya at?

The other thread left when Gary left.

I finished up the end cap finally. I will update this thread this week. My shop good a little messy with the trailer purchase and lots of life things in the way. I am about to get back started soon.

Does anyone know why Gary left ? I vaguely remember him being back after an extended absence. It does seem like there has been a fair bit of turnover the last year or 2.

I think he posted a bon voyage message but I wouldn't go into the details as I've already been ban hammered from another form for such talk.

And yeah. We've lost about a hundred years of good experience in the last one or two.

Some people have left and some knowledge went with them but for the sake and sanity of everyone still here I would like to get this thread back on the topic of Matt's Roubo build and the fact that he isn't working on it because he is camping... 

Sanity doesn’t exist in the world of woodworking according to my wife, but I agree;)

Somebody needs to post pictures of the inevitable melted soles. 

Those shoes need to be resoled anyway. They are one of the best pair of shoes I have ever had. They are my shop, yard work, camping, roof, house work shoes. The only problem is that they so many miles on them the tread is completely gone. If they are wet and I step on a smooth surface, I may end up on my butt.

I have me a pair of them also. They are the Danner brand Marine Corps Branded boots. Those things have seen done serious sheet, and still kicking but last time I went hiking, I thought I had bad grip. Looked at the soul and the center of both is worn past any nubs. Just slick rubber. Time for a re soul and new life.

I finally got some time yesterday to get some work done on the bench. Started milling up the doghole strip and front laminate. Had to fill some small knots with epoxy and currently waiting for that to cure.

I hope the epoxy cures quicker than it took you to start the dog hole strip:D. Looking forward to your progress Matt!
