Items for sale.

Advertisements

I grudgingly admit that I’ve been swept up in the wave of minimalism/anarchism that has overtaken the world of woodworking. That being said, I have a few items I would like to “set free” (for a small price of course) to clear out some space in my tiny garage work area. The good news is these items are all ‘Roubo’ related, making them very valuable to classy woodworkers everywhere. So without further ado:

ROUBO TWIG

The first item is a Roubo twig taken from a maple tree. Obviously normal twigs are virtually worthless, but because this is a Roubo twig the value increases dramatically. First $65 takes it.

ROUBO PENCIL

You can see this is no normal pencil. For those who may be unaware, this is a Roubo pencil. Highly prized. Cost $245. No apologies.

ROUBO SHOEPOLISH

Firstly, it’s easy to tell that this is Roubo shoe polish because it says it right on the front. The French writing also confirms it. Because it is brown, the same color as most tree bark, it is even more valuable than black or cordovan. Cost $305.

ROUBO ELECTRICIAN’S SCREWDRIVER

Very rare! There were few if any electricians alive during the time of Roubo, so this may built have been used by the man himself! Clearly labeled ‘Roubo’ so you know it’s authentic. $1275.00 No apologies.

ROUBO REMOTE CONTROL

I saved the best (and rarest) item for last. This is certainly one of a kind and likely used on Roubo’s personal television. Though not really useful in the woodworking sense, it is a one of a kind collector’s item. $12,265.00 and not a penny less.

I’d like to add that I generally would never solicit readers of this blog, but I’m not doing this for my own profit. I am, at this moment, having an ideological paradigm shift, and I feel that sharing it with all of you is the first step in making it happen.

Thanks!!

    It makes me sad that you are not ready to part with the piece of toast that came out of the toaster with the image of Roubo on it…

    I am sure the bidding war between Roy and Chris would be intense!!!

    Well, it’s a new world we live in and if you don’t want to be left behind you have to get with the program. That is the Roubo program. It’s taken over every aspect of woodworking. If you don’t want to appear an ignorant fool you have to become conversant in everything Roubo. Buy the books, make the tools, talk the talk and walk the walk. Attend the events and drink the Roubo coolaid. When you have steeped yourself in everything Roubo you may be poorer but your be much wiser. 🙂

    Excellent posting, but it probably should have been done on the first of April? That said, I would like to place an advance order for the Roubo bicycle with attached Roubo 2-wheeled cart so that I can shop correctly.

    I’m interested in all of the items listed, is there a bundle discount or something? I’m really struggling to get enough cash together at the moment sorry. I’ve just spent my last $100 on another woodworking book.

  5. Very amusing Bill, I don’t see that pencil sharpener though 🙂

    It’s Monday, Monday and I have to say if satire is one ditch and sarcasm is the other ditch, I really enjoy your driving…weaving is similar to woodwork anyway!

  7. Andrew Smith says:

    My cash is Canadian…so you actually owe me! I don’t really need a remote as I only watch the woodworking channel.

    I like your humor! I know what you mean about “THE” “name” on an item brings in the $. Keep up the humor. Laughter can add years to our lives.
