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 is even valuable for those who work mostly with machines. I've been building benches for almost 35 years. I settled on this design in 2012, and have built a bunch for my shop and have helped dozens of people build theirs. These are the best benches I've used. They are rock solid,  and have 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 (I've built these from  54" to  84" long). You will also have to provide the vise hardware (mine have Benchcrafted vise hardware, which is incredibly good). I can't guarantee that you will be able to install the vises in class, but we will do our best.

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.
