Well i have to wait at least 7 weeks. I have no way to get lumber ... I'm hoping to do this in 2019 but it's going to be a battle between the bench and a cedar strip canoe. This is why it gets put off. I always think of things i'd like that aren't shop tools that I'd rather make.

I took a class at WoodenBoat School in 2016 where we built a cedar strip canoe it’s was a blast and hope to make my own someday as well.

Well the build is pretty much done, just need to add the crubber to the chop and dogs, some sanding and apply the finish.  Benchcrafted hardware works like a dream.  I will post some final pics once t

I got the base put together and added the bottom shelf, I am now at the point where I will need an extra pair of hands to move the base and attach the top.  I am really hoping I don’t need to do much

Roubo finally done and ready for the next project.  I have some shop organization to get done, too much crap on my benches!  Next furniture project will be a coffee table with coopered tapered pedesta

Same here except I start most projects, get into the actual build and set it aside for something " higher priority" aka something I want to do more.

Currently I'm on a moratorium from and fresh starts. I had 6 unfinished projects going on at one time that needed done so no new projects till those are done and a storage solution is made for the shop.

Cedar strip canoe is something I want to do also. All in good time I guess.

@Cheeset202 So is the Roubo everything you dreamed it was? Is it better  .... worse?

Sorry for the HJ

My debate is between a single person canoe or a 2 person .... i'd love to make a small light fast one for just me to go fishing but it'd also be fun to run the Mississippi so a larger more stable river canoe that i could bring some one with would be fun as well. It's goign to lead to me building 2 of them.

I'd love to someday canoe the Mississippi from the headwaters all the way to lock and dam #1. Boundary waters is also on the list.

I remember you posting about that. You and watching some of the Offerman videos on building the canoe made me realize they aren't as difficult as i made them out to be.

Nope just different from what we are used too kinda like doing a sculpted rocker (bars stools in my case.) Where typically we woodworkers are look for everything to be square on those projects its all about getting fair curves
