This is the Benchcrafted design of the Split-Top Roubo planing bench. It’s got a few small tweaks from the original design, yet stays true to Jameel’s awesome implementation of the traditional model.
The bench can be used for all manner of woodworking tasks but excels as a 3-dimensional clamping station. Both the glide leg vise and tail vise hold strong and true, and the sliding deadman offers incredible flexibility in holding larger work. Bench dogs running the length of the top create a massive clamping capability.
Made primarily of hard maple. Other species used for visual interest. What a great project this was. Can’t wait to supplement this with the Moxon.
