This was a one day class in Pittsboro NC with Roy Underhill. It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. Plus you can go upstairs and shop for old tools in Ed’s store.

Roy said the wood is Peruvian walnut. It is fairly soft and easy to work.

I’ve a;ways wanted to try to make the Roubo Book stand. Making one at the wood wrights school with Roy Underhill would be a real treat!

Saw that episode on cable TV awhile back, immediately wanted to try to make one. Forgot to put it on project list, thanks for reminder! :)
