Video – Build a Roubo Workbench Part 4 -The end-cap mortise

{{unknown}}

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 we start work on the end cap by cutting the mortise.

  3. Hey Jord, how about increasing the woodworking content in the videos? I think what you are doing is great, only drawback is I want them to be longer video’s….. 10-15 mins. Keep up the good work

  4. As I watched you using the drill press to cut away material for the mortise, I wondered if you could overlap each pass even more to reduce the amount of work with the chisels. I don’t have a drill press so have not had the opportunity to try this myself. Maybe a video of things that shouldn’t be done instead of things that should be done is in order. Thanks, and keep up the good work.

  5. Jord thank you for putting these videos together. They’ve been really informative and a great resource in my own workbench project. I was wondering though what you settled on for hardware for the two vises? Keep up the great series.

  7. Just curious, is there any reason why you didn’t use a router to cut the mortice instead of using a drill?

  10. Thanks for the video series. I’m starting a similar build this week. One question though, with your end cap, do you need to be concerned about seasonal wood movement? It doesnt seem like youre leaving room for expansion?

    US :’ (

  14. What about the top moving / expanding and the end cap trying to hold it.

  15. Not one to dispute your skill and clearly you have skill, but could you not
    have used either a morticer or router to get rid of the waste?

  17. Wouldn’t you have saved quite a bit of time roughing out that mortise with
    your router?

  18. Just a suggestion – you have links to the next vid, why not a link to the
    previous vid in a series like this, too? My search pulled up Part 2 first
    (no idea why, probly because I was on Part 2 of Paul Sellers’ workbench
    build), and I had to hunt a bit to find part 1. Just a thought. Great work!
