  1. Roubo Bench with Criss Cross Leg Vise

    I've been thinking about this bench for probably 2 years. My very first woodworking project was a poor interpretation of the Roubo. As I came to realize it's limitations, I studied the benches posted on Lumberjocks and planned my next bench. I began working on this bench the first of October...
  2. Roubo-style Workbench

    I finished up my Roubo-style workbench based on Christopher Schwarz plans this month. I build early stringed instruments (harpsichords, violas da gamba, etc.) and this bench was just what the doctor ordered.

    Here we go! For the last year, everytime I ventured into a BORG store, I took a gander at the douglas fir 2×10' and 2×12' offerings, always looking for those pith in the middle to give that quarter sawn growth ring aspect. On top of that, the pieces would also have to be knot free on the...

    Where to Start? At the beginning, of course Woodworkers like to showcase their skills and what better way to do so than to make a work bench. In fact, Lumberjocks has entire forums with thousands of posts about workbenches. Workbench Smack Down (part 2) is already some 20K posts long with...
