FORP II, Work Progresses and The Sun Comes Out............FINALLY!!!

Work Progresses at the French Oak Roubo Project II. After several days of cold drizzly rain the Sun finally emerged on Tuesday afternoon.

Ted Lolley (far side) checks the fit on his bench top joint. Jeff Miller and Pete Krupowicz  are looking on.

The glue is spread and the clamps go on.

With timbers this large you get squeeze out even before you tighten the clamps.

As you will see in the attached video these are big pieces of French Oak timbers and require quite large machines and plenty of people power for safe and efficient handling.

All the attendees at this event have worked together so well and cooperatively I thought it appropriate to attach a quote about friendship.


The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I have received it.
