Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

With my plug locations established, I move on to drilling the holes and cutting the square plug holes. I set up stops on the drill press and drill the clearance holes in the front legs, back legs and crest rails. There are 27 square plugs on each of the 15 chairs, for a total of 405 square plugs. After all of the clearance holes are drilled, I cut the square plug holes using the Lee Valley square hole punches. I align the punch with the hole using a long dowel pin, then square th...
