The Roubo workbench is based on a European design from André Roubo's 18th century cabinetmaking text, L'Art du Menuisier. The massive split-top bench offers excellent clamping capabilities, incorporating a leg vise on the front and a tail vise at one end.
This plan and instructions provide all the information you need to build a versatile adaptation of this traditional workbench (vises not included). Printed on high-quality 20 lb bond paper, the drawings are supplied rolled so you can lay them flat. Illustrated instructions include tips and design modifications, and are supported by supplementary materials on the Benchcrafted website.
The 87" long, 24" wide and 35" high bench weighs over 300 lb if made from hard maple. Four pages of 20" × 30" dimensioned drawings are supplied with a 28-page booklet of detailed instructions. Printed in USA.
