You might want to look through blogs by bigredknothead here on LJs. He built a beautiful big Roubo. There’s also a lot of good info on the Work bench smack down thread. It’s long, but I have learned a ton about benches on that thread.

Christopher Schwarz’s books are great. I’m not clear what kind of end vise you’re wanting but if a wagon vise will work Shipwright’s wedge wagon vise is very economical.

Just stumbled onto Jords Woodshop website . He has a video series on building a round bench.

Thanks very one for the great ideas, gotta say the wedge wagon vice is intriguing I think I’ll try that one.
