It’s been a long on and off project. My son was asking for a bench at his size, this how this project started. I was looking to built a roubo for myself but got the idea the built a small one to see if i had the skills to do it. Now i think that i can do it just need to find time to do it. The bench was made with left over wood. the legs and top are fir lumber from Home Depot, the vise jaw is walnut, the hub is maple and the garter plate is cherry. I use the drawbore technic to put the base together and made my own pegs out of walnut. It is small but heavy, stiff and steady. I’ve use a mixture of blo/turp/beeswax to finish the bench except for the chop, it was so nice that i put 10 coats of thung oil.
