I have recently SCORED a large butcher block top and have in mind to finally design and build a “classic” bench. I have vise hardware that I purchased 20 yrs ago at Woodcraft and have a face vise and modified tail vise in mind. Im leaning towards a Roubo style with large walnut legs and maple top and stretchers. Any recommendations from the experienced gang here would be appreciated. I plan on all hand tool construction, just to say I did it.
Thanks in advance!
