Finally finished my top for my Robou workbench. I made so many mistakes on this, but learned a ton. This is just version 1.0. I already have the wood for a ten footer. This one is about 6 feet long. It is made out of two slabs of white oak glued together with a large tongue and groove joint. The dog holes are routed into the slab, which is a little different than the normal method of doing it in the front laminate. My front and back laminates are made out of old growth doug fir. I made the large Condor Tail dove tails from a method described in Popular Woodworking. I would have waited to post when everything was done, but I’m getting deployed for nine months to the Middle East and could not wait to share.
