« Part 16: Undercarriage Over Top Part 17 of Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench series Part 18: End Caps »

I’m making progress on the workbench. Over the past few weeks I completed the glue up of the base. I assembled it upside down to allow work on the base without having to manipulate the heavy top. This morning with a little bit of planning, levering and muscle power, it’s back on it’s feet. It’s actually starting to look like a workbench now

Now the fiddly pieces… end caps… vices… The individual components are largely complete but the assembly has only just begun.

imo it’s a pity not to be able to move around such a mighty bench; haven’t you enough room to place it orthogonal to the window wall?
(majestic bench :-))
