grfrazee, Chris Schwarz has a chapter in the book “Hand Tool Essentials” that also describes how to build the Roubo bench. It might be the exact same information as Schwarz’s first “Workbenches” book, but I don’t have that book, so I can’t verify that. The “Hand Tool Essentials” book can be purchased online for about half the prices of the “Workbenches” book, so if you do decide to buy, that option may be cheaper.

UPDATE: I just noticed that “Hand Tool Essentials” is available for $6.99 at (no affiliation). That’s a bargain for anyone interested in hand tools.
