  1. Roubo Workbench (Hand tools Only)

    In my attempt to move over to a hand tool lifestyle, I decided to upgrade my workbench to a Roubo, since they are all the rage. This is Roy Underhill's version. I don't have his book, so I had to redesign it to fit what I remember it as, keeping his basic vision as a base to work off of. I biult...
  2. Rroubo Style Frame Saw

    The Roubo Style Frame saw is a tool I made int he past, but I needed to remake it as I broke my old one. This in one hand tool that can completely change the way you work. My last one was dropped and it blew out one of the mortices, and there were a few small tweaks I wanted to make on this...
  3. Roubo Workbench (Hand Tools Only)

    After a few months of working on the weekends, I have finished my workbench build! It was built entirely with hand tools. The hardest part was definitely milling all the lumber to size. The temporary bench (child's oak school desk) just didn't want to stay put. It lasted just long enough to...
  4. Roubo Workbench

    I've been woodworking for going on five years now. This is my first real workbench. I've never even had a vise before. I really don't know how I got by without this until now. The design is inspired by Roubo (obviously), Chris Schwarz, and Jordan (of JordsWoodShop). Its constructed of...
  5. Roubo Workbench

    I figured I would add this to my projects. I blogged the build if anyone is interested. This bench is largely based off of the PW gluebo bench; the top is LVL with maple banding and a few maple boards added in. Its 7'-2" long, 33" tall, and 26" deep. has a Lake Erie leg vise with sliding...
  6. Maple Left-Handed Workbench w/ Emmert Patternmaker's Vise

    I would like to share one of my latest projects that I can finally say is finished. Believe it or not, I only have around $350 in this workbench. The majority of the construction took maybe 2 months (working a couple days per week on average) and mounting the Emmert took a full day and a half...
  7. Coffee Table

    Made of Chinese Pine or Norway Pine I think they are all the same. We have 4 slabs and This particular piece was found in my wifes parents,parents barn. We think the tree was roughly 90+ years old counting rings and it was in the barn for at least 35. Kept dry! It was a little rough and...
  8. Roubo Jr.

    Made my son his own workbench for his 5th birthday. It is made from select 4×4 df lumber from the home center. He loves playing wack-a-mole with the bench dogs and messing with the wagon vise. I also made him the tool rack from the PW plans for his budding tool collection.
  9. Roubo Sr.

    After making my son his jr. sized Roubo: "http://lumberjocks.com/projects/302474" , I decided it was time to make my own proper bench. The material choices are based on staying within a certain budget, and the time to build, as I have 2 small children that get most of my free time. It is a...
  10. Split-top Roubo workbench

    Finally (almost) done! A split-top roubo style bench, heavily influenced by Christopher Schwartz and his excellent workbench book. I made it with the surplus materials I had, which was a hell of a lot of 4/4 white oak and curly maple (<$1/bf from Craigslist last year) plus a bit of leftover...
  11. Benchcrafted-inspired Roubo workbench

    This is my Benchcrafted-inspired split-top Roubo workbench. Eight feet long, 29" wide, 35" tall, and weighs about 300 pounds. Includes a leg vise, tail vise, and sliding deadman, and was built over six months. Primarily constructed of Burrill fir 2×4s from Home Depot, but also birch, white oak...
  12. Roubo/Scandinavian Workbench

    Hello. This is the workbench I finished making on November the 12th. It is a combination of both the Roubo and Scandinavian bench designs. It has a shoulder vise, leg vise, and tail vise. The bench is made from hard maple with the shoulder vise chop and sliding deadman made of walnut. I also...
  13. Another Workbench! (But this one is mine.)

    Could not decide. So many choices. Torsion Box, Roubo, built up sheet goods, Scandinavian, etc. Finally moved forward when I stumbled upon Carter's Whittling worbench build page, and he referenced the Edwards bench he was using as his inspiration. I found the edwards bench in a short video, and...
  14. French Workbench

    I just completed my workbench! It is inspired by Roy Underhill's "Roubo" and other antique examples of French benches I've found online. I started it over a year ago. However, there were other projects in between, not the least of these was learning how to make my own wooden screws! I blogged...
  15. Roubo/French Workbench

    This was a labor of love and a great source of enjoyment. I won't go into too much detail on the construction of the bench because I recently started a blog series on the topic. This post will be more of the show and less of the tell. I found Christopher Schwarz' blue (2007) workbench book very...
  16. Roubo Build

    Hi all! I have now been using this bench for about 6 months and I love it (Credit: Wood Whisperer Guild for instruction and design although I did part from it in some places). It took me two months of weekends (and some weeknights) to finish it. I then went to work designing the tool chest...
  17. Split Top Roubo - Benchcrafted

    Yes….another split top roubo…. I just completed my lifetime workbench. I have worked on this off and on for several months - probably close to a year. I really have no idea how long it has actually taken me. I used power tools as much as possible. However, I don't own a power jointer or...
  18. Roubo bookstand made in Roy Underhill's class

    This was a one day class in Pittsboro NC with Roy Underhill. It was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it. Plus you can go upstairs and shop for old tools in Ed's store. Roy said the wood is Peruvian walnut. It is fairly soft and easy to work.
  19. Sliding Deadman

    So to add even more work holding options to my hybrid roubo/nicholson workbench i decided to add a deadman. It comes in handy, especially when working with longer stock. Its a pretty cheap and quick way to upgrade your bench to give you a few more options. if you want to check out the entire...
  20. Roubo Workbench with a German Flair

    I thought I had uploaded this already but was surprised to discover I missed it. With so much talk about workbenches these days I figured now was a good time to post my Roubo workbench. I finished this early in 2010 and have built several pieces on it since then. I am thrilled with this...
