Tiny Roubo style work bench/coffee table.

by Sean Samoheyl

So I had help starting a blog! Finally,I decided it made sense. DH, did it all for me thanks DH!
So I’ve been making things for the little ones in our community and as always, things need to have a dual purpose. Here is a miniature chair maker’s work bench which will also serve as a coffee table. I’d had the tap and die for threading wood for a bit with this idea but felt intimidated because the turned cylinder for the screw needs to be fairly accurate to work. I used the bench today to carve a horse’s head onto a mallet since I’m selling hammocks and my furniture at the Louisa County agricultural fair. The highlight was the bluegrass music performed by old timers with hearing aids, matching uniforms and informal banter amid the Flat and Scruggs stylings and skillful fingerpicking. That was a treat. I sat for a long day much of which was raining on my chairs through the tent.
