39/365: Just when I thought I had a figured out all the ways to hold stock for clamping this one came up. I always glue solid wood panels and glue trim on plywood in the upright position so this works really well to give me complete access for clamp position and inspection. That bench is my version of a Roubo workbench. There is a complete step by step video series on AskWoodMan.TV if you are interested.
305/365: I got my aprons and legs sand blasted. I then hit them with a grinder and composite disc before welding the legs on. This is another shot of my welding table and a clamping setup to get the legs welded on square.
208/365: The last two pieces of trim glued on for my project. I counted all the trim after gluing this up. 171 separate pieces. If Pony clamp manipulation was in the Olympics, I feel rock solid for at least a bronze.
154/365: The Texas Roubo workbench is worth its weight in gold to me. With my three work tables covered with tools and materials for this project, this setup just lets me get on with my work. Here I am gluing the solid wood maple (3/8”) banding to the Baltic birch ply, and also have a router setup going that allows me to quickly flush trim the banding waste on both edges with a support board that keeps that big router from tilting. Notice how far the panel I am gluing is cantilevered off the bench with all those clamps yet everything is still rock solid. There is complete video series on AskWoodman.tv about making that bench.
