I am a little confused, it looks like your tail vise is centered but your dog holes are front aligned, how does this work?

Nice bench. Interesting take on the “split top” this way you won’t have 3 boards worth of sawdust, and curls laying in your trench.

The idea always being quick access to your tools. If you can’t see them, it seems of little good. I’m gonna bet you get duplicated on that a lot.

Great looking bench! I am planning a Moravian style bench in the near future.

Very nice! Congrats on your new bench.

I built a split Roubo a few years back and never expected the huge improvement in my woodworking game. Amazing improvement and I hope you’ll see the same.

So true, also time will test how it will handle the top stress. Also, I saved my self 2 upper stretchers :)

That bench is real cool. All these benches has me thinking do I build one as well? I’m starting to use hand planes more and more and my bench moves to much.

Anyway nice bench!

Great looking solid bench. I like your tool holder design. Doesn’t take up much room, holds the tools you are currently using, and is easily removeable if you need to get some other clamps in there to secure something odd.

Best one yet I have seen congrats on T3. Not to over done on items and has the essentials to complete the work. Thanks for the video well done. Maybe I can get mine done also.
