The Different Personalities of the French Oak Roubo Project

Today as I was moving thru the shop at Wyatt Childs I began thinking about this group of bench builders and how diverse a group they are. Included in these people are Doctors, Attorneys, Glass artist, Auto Body Shop Proprietors, Tech Gurus, Woodworking Store Owners, Surveyor, Plane Maker, the list goes on and on.

Yet this week they are all like minded people converging in a common task. I can describe them all in just two words "Good People".



  1. Thanks for sharing the great pictures Ron. It has always seemed to me that inherently woodworkers are some of the nicest people in the world. I haven't been a part of a better community or one as willing to share ideas so willingly.
    This Roubo build is exciting to see. Its great to see professional and amateur woodworkers side by side. Pretty sweet picture of Mr. Miller sporting a Ron Brese T-shirt. Im sure that didn't influence your picture selection. lol


  2. Reserve de France ® Hardwood flooring receive the upmost attention to detail throughout every step of their creation. We have direct relationships with National forests in France , and giving us access to the highest grade French oak lumber and allowing us to hand select each log that your floor is crafted from. From there, each board of your new floor is hand crafted to a high standard in Reserve de France. Every individual log we use can be traced back to responsibly harvested and verified sources from French sustainable forests. In these certified forests, selective cutting is the manner to harvest logs without destroying the forest. Reserve de France - Producer of Solid and Engineered French Oak Hardwood Flooring ready to lay. The logs are "live sawn" in a horizontal manner only. After cutting, the boards are naturally air dried for 12 to 24 months. Before production into wide planks for flooring, the planks are slowly kiln dried for 30 days for added stability and to bring the moisture content to indoor levels. At this production time, we also use the high tannin content of the French Oak to accelerate the aging process to give different natural colors to the flooring plank without using any artificial coloring or stain.
