After making my son his jr. sized Roubo: “http://lumberjocks.com/projects/302474” , I decided it was time to make my own proper bench. The material choices are based on staying within a certain budget, and the time to build, as I have 2 small children that get most of my free time. It is a split top design using two 6×12s for the tops, and 4×6 lumber for the legs and stretchers. The legs and stretchers weren’t the pretties wood, hence the millk paint, but at least they were straight and square enough to build the bench. The Benchcrafted classic /crisscross is well worth the investments. I’ll add a wagon vise at some point, but the dogs work just fine for now.
