Also, this is not a review or endorsement. I plan on doing a objective review once I use it for some time. If you have questions that you would like to ask Jim directly you can email him at Ancora Yacht Service ———————————R...

Red Cedar Flower in progress #1 #1: Red Cedar Flower in progress #1

Super Glide Recycled Roubo Workbench #1: Prepping the lumber

05-11-2012 03:47 AM by WheelsAF | 8 comments »

Like many weekend woodworkers I made due for years with half-baked workbenches. A few years back I saw the Roubo design and knew I would build it one day. That day has come. I am a retired AF officer (well…retired from the AF not from working :)) who has decided to get serious about my hobby.
