So I’m almost finished milling my materials and figured it was time to get to the design. I guess its a Roubo inspired design. I’m not going to have the leg vise at least not in the beginning but I like the apron and center slide concept with all of the dog holes. On the backside I’d like to have a cabinet/drawers.
But I have a few questions and would like some feedback. To maximize cabinet height I made the backside top apron 3” high, I would like to make the bottom rail 3” high too, I have it in red…how much impact do you think it will have to the over all rigidity of the bench. I have it highlighted in Red.
Also I haven’t decided on the joinery, I see others using bolt and such…I was going to use epoxy….thoughts?
