Meet Dr. Ray Fleck, Roubo's Personal Physician

Watch for more as we get closer to the build. And if you use Instagram, the special code is: #frenchoakroubo (or so we're told.)

Incidentally, we have opened an Instagram account, specifically for sharing pics from the FORP (since we have little time to blog during the build.) But don't expect much after that. No vignetted pics of frothy pints, no Kodachrome-esque images of our neighboor's cat, no desaturated shots of our oatmeal. We can only handle so much of the digital world before we feel like programs under the heel of the MCP.

  3. Those pretty legs will have the chops to back them up! Or rather cover them up...

    Finally have a good reason to open an Instagram account!

  5. What a beautiful piece of oak! Too bad I don’t have an Instagram account yet to view the updates. Do you plan to share the finished product here? I agree, taking pictures, doing the woodwork, and then blogging can be really tedious!
