I’ve been thinking about this bench for probably 2 years. My very first woodworking project was a poor interpretation of the Roubo. As I came to realize it’s limitations, I studied the benches posted on Lumberjocks and planned my next bench.
I began working on this bench the first of October and it has been a blast these last 10 weeks. The bench is made of cherry and maple. It measures 7’ x 21” and is 34” tall. The end vise is a quick release face vise and the front vise is a leg vise using Benchcrafted’s Crisscross.
The finish was one coat of Sealcoat followed by a more than normal amount of sanding and then two coats of Watco’s Danish Oil.
I’ve started a blog about a few aspects of the bench such as the Crisscross.
Thanks for looking
