An iron planing stop, obtained from Peter Ross, is also going to be installed on my chairmaker’s bench. Ever since I read about these on Chris Schwarz’s blog a couple years back, I’ve had the bug to try one. Peter is a busy guy and the planing stop is worth waiting for as his workmanship is outstanding. Well this little bench as heavy as it is now will be a good place to try it out. It will have to do until I finally build a big Roubo bench in several years. I hope to cut the hole this weekend using a auger, saber saw and chisel or two as Chris Schwarz had described earlier. Finding a good piece of 3 inch by 3 inch oak will probably be accomplished by gluing up a couple pieces to thickness until I have larger stock available.
