Hello All,
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!

Welcome!! Suggest you search out the work bench smack down thread. Believe me, you’ll get enough ideas such that you’ll have a tough time making up your mind.
