Build a Roubo-Style Workbench

Build a Roubo-Style Workbench

from 750.00

A good workbench is at the core of your shop. It's almost indispensable for hand work, and valuable even for those who work mostly with machines. I've just finished up my fifth Roubo-style bench. Why so many? These are the best benches I've used. They are rock solid,  with amazing work-holding abilities. This is the bench I wrote about in Fine Woodworking (Tools and Shop Issue, 2012)

You can size the bench to suit the space you have available (mine are 54", 64", and 84" long), and you can choose and will need to provide the vise hardware (mine have Benchcrafted vise hardware, which is the best I have found). I can't guarantee that you will be able to install the vises in class, but we will certainly try!

I will supply carefully milled wood (ash) - price will depend on the length of your bench, but will average $1200. I have found that letting students supply the wood slows down the process so much (we usually have to re-mill in class) that this will not be an option.
