Roubo-Style Workbench

Roubo-Style Workbench

A Roubo-Style Workbench that I have made in sketchup. There is a large tool box that can be lifted in and out of the bench, resting on the 2 lower stretchers. The lower stretchers mortosis would be a loose fit and the stretchers have no tenons, these stretchers are mainly to hold the tool box. The tool tray on the back of the bench, rests on a clete that is attached to the bottom face of the bench top, with a 'keystone' piece to assist in placement. The front legs use a sliding dovetail to attach to the bench top, and the rear legs are mortised at the same angle as the sliding dovetail, so the legs will slide into the top as a complete unit joined with the upper stretchers installed between the legs. The leg vise is based loosely on a vice I found online but would need to be integrated with your chosen hardware. I dont have the tools or resources to make this myself, but would love to hear from you if you are planning on using these plans. #finished_model #french #legvice #roubo #slidingdovetail #vice #woodwork #Workbench
