I wanted to post up a few pics of my Modified Roubo style workbench made from chinquapin. I used the article in FineWoodworking’s annual Tools & Shops (issue #230) as reference for the design and for the most part size. My finished Bench dimensions are: 84” Long x 24-1/2” Deep x 4” Thick and 35” Tall.
I will do a better write up with more specifics later when i get more time, but I wanted to at least post the photos I took while building! I didn’t document every step in the build just took pics as things were coming together. I need to do a final planing of the top (it is flattened) and clean up a few of the joints then it will be ready to get a finish on it. I plan on using either OSMO PolyX-Oil or OSMO Top Oil. I am not sure which one I will use yet, I have used the PolyX Oil and like that but haven’t tried the Top Oil. If anyone has used the Top Oil and can comment on the difference for this application that would be great!
