(Sigh)....Roubo time

Recommended Posts

Hit a snag....the hole I drilled is slightly off. I am using the barrel nuts from BC, and I basically need to scoot the hole over about 1/4.” I see two options:

1) chisel out the section to the right and put the barrel but in there( it’s the underside of the bench, and it doesn’t bother me)

2) plug the hole and drill a new one.

Thoughts?

Got the hole patched and scorched over an 8th of an inch. Everything works! In a related note, my benchcrafted kit didn’t include the flange bolts for the tail vise. I emailed them, and the sent them out that day. 

Ripped another piece of maple for the dog hole strip and front laminate.

I am going with round dogs. Feel free to rap on that.

Dunno bout you, I chose round dogs because my drill makes round holes.

Hey, my drill does to, does that mean we bought the wrong stuff?

I used round holes in my Roubo for a couple of reasons: simplicity and versatility.  Although I like the look of the traditional square dogs, having the round ones, along with a couple of hold fasts, makes life very easy.  I'm not 100% finished my bench (still working on ornamentation for the leg vise chop), but I've already started on my next project, and I'm using that front row of round holes with both the end vise and the hold fasts interchangeably.
