Hello. This is the workbench I finished making on November the 12th. It is a combination of both the Roubo and Scandinavian bench designs. It has a shoulder vise, leg vise, and tail vise. The bench is made from hard maple with the shoulder vise chop and sliding deadman made of walnut. I also have two holdfasts to go with the bench. I may eventually make a shelf between the base stretchers, but not sure yet. The top is also removable from the base to make the 250+ lb bench much easier to move. The bench took just over 2 months of full time work to build, but the design was made back in June. I have two 2 1/2” 2tpi wooden screws on the leg vise and shoulder vise, with a 2” 2 tpi screw on the tail vise. The bench is finished with boiled linseed oil.
If you go to the link here http://lumberjocks.com/CartersWhittling/blog/23792 you can see the first blog entry for the entire build of the workbench.
Here are two videos I made going over the bench now that it is finished. In the first video I talk mainly about the design and construction details, while in the second video I show practically how each vise can be used.
