I am on the downhill leg of my Roubo bench project. Hoping to have it done within the next few months. Time to start thinking of where I will eventually place this behemoth pseudo masterpiece.
Thinking deeply about it, Roubo himself most likely didn’t have a climate controlled shop, so why the heck am I even complaining?
My shop is a humble and uninsulated 10×16 wood shed. Even if I did add an HVAC system with insulation in the walls, the issue with climate fluctuation will still be present. Mainly, I am concerned about movement in the wood and the welfare of my vices. (Lakeeerie leg vice and BenchCrafted tail vise)
Ideally I would put this in a corner of my storage room in the basement. Cool and dry. Still working on the wife to convince her of that. 0.o
So what do you guys think? Would love to here from someone that is doing this successfully so I can put my nerves to rest.
