French Oak Roubo Project III

This week we started the third FORP build in Barnesville GA. Hosted by Benchcrafted and Wyatt Childs Inc. We have had a wonderful couple of days so far and progressing much faster than the erlier two builds. Below are a few photos of the build. Sorry I don’t have more, I am tired and calling it a day!

  1. Will- I have a wooden screw vice from erie. I have a temp control wood shop. Meaning my ac works all the time. I never touch it. About 72. But at times u really have to put muscle in to turn it I think the wax gets hard. Or sometimes I put oil on it. It always goes back to being stiff. What should I do Jay
