Video – Build a Roubo Workbench Part 3 – Cutting the Slabs tenon

In this video series I show you how to make a solid Roubo workbench on a budget using readily available timber and hardware.

In this video I show you the process I use to cut the tenon on the bench top that receives the end cap.

  1. Good vids as always… Also occurred to me that you may get the same ad revenue for a 7 minute video as you would for a 17 minute video, in which case it makes sense to publish a number of shorter videos if that’s one of the aims for releasing them 🙂

  2. Good stuff Jord. Excuse me if I have missed or forgotten something but what is that end cap made of? just a piece of 4b2 that has been stained?

  4. I really like the mix between the two channels how you go into a little more detail on the other channel. This looks to be a great build, I will probably start on this when the series is all complete. That is if my list of other projects doesn’t overwhelm me.

  6. Jordie, There is no need to apologize for long or short video’s. You are spending your time to put these videos out for our viewing and dare I say learning, for FREE. I for one am a grateful viewer. Thanks for all the great videos out there from you and everyone that uploads. Without all of you I would still JUST be making shelves…

  9. Hi Jord, I am really enjoying this build, This end cap is going to contrast really well with the slab. Thanks for all your hard work mate.N.

  10. Jord … FWIW, I really appreciate the shorter videos. I have never found your longer videos ‘boring’, but the shorter ones are easier to fit in during breaks in the shop. Thanks!

  15. Then again, if you had all those tools, budget is probably not an issue… :T

  16. Mr Jords, your videos have never been Boring! Your channel is one of the best online- along with the wood whisperer and Paul Sellers. You never say any info that isn’t useful or necessary for the project like other woodworkers that like the sound of their own voice. Shorter vids are fine but don’t think your talking too much at all. keep up all the hard work and videos man.

  19. Seconding the others. I’m here for the content too. I don’t think you
    should even bother explaining anything video related. If you have to, do it
    in the description. Remember that YouTube now counts a video “watched” or
    not depending on how far the viewer got through the video. So I recommend
    keeping it to your woodwork alone so that a bigger % of the vid is exactly
    what people are coming here to see.

  20. I learned so much from this video series! I like how you took your time
    explaining things and going through different options to accomplish the
    same task (without being redundant). I’m new to carpentry and have very
    limited tools and experience so the work you’re sharing is very valuable to
    me and many others I’m sure. Thanks Jordan and keep up the good work!
