And that's why I've had so much stick-to-it-tiveness with this workbench build.
Several months ago, I realized that I don't have a whole lot of projects to show for my 20 years as a woodworker. Twenty years! I should have built enough things to fill a house.
Instead, I've spent a good deal of time thinking about the things I'd like to build.
I'll be 48 this summer, which means I may have a good 20+ years of woodworking in my future (or 40, if my genes are anything like Sam Maloof's).
And I intend to pack the next 20 years with loads of wood shavings.
Here are progress shots of my Roubo build. I'll start on the long stretchers this weekend.
