This is based on Christopher Schwarz Roube Style workbench. The last picture is my friend Ken who braved the CA winter in 2009 and 2010 to help me build the bench. He is the carpenter I am the woodworker. He has 30 years fo experience I have just 5 years. We had a good time and learned from each other.
The bench is made from Hem-fir, the top is 4 inches and the legs are 5 inches square. It weights close to 400 lbs and is very sturdy. I love that it can hold anything, anytime anywhere. It is my dream bench and I love working on it everyday.
3 years to make, one to plan, one week in Feb 2009 and one week in 2010. A good friend and as you can see some great breakfasts at the Beahbreak cafe in Oceanside, Ca. Love that banana french toast.
