Our April 2014 Workbench of the Month comes from Dino P. from Gibsons, British Columbia – Canada. Dino has created a great split top workbench that has both a leg and wagon vise. With the array of clamping capabilities that this bench provides, it looks like a woodworker’s dream. Enjoy!
Find attached my split-top Roubo-style woodworking bench featuring your Leg and Wagon vise screw kits. It is made from West Coast Douglas Fir and also features a sliding deadman and split top with a “gap stop” that functions as a planing stop and tool holder. Have also added some roller brackets with sealed roller bearings to help feed the parallel guide on the leg vise. Base is assembled with mortise and tenon joints that are glued and also draw-bored. The top is 4 inches thick and bench is 7 feet long and overall width of 25 inches. Have also included some Gramercy holdfasts for additional clamping options.Bench does not have a finish applied as yet (just finsihed it last night) but plan on an oil/varnish blend.
Thanks for supplying such a great product in both wooden vise screws, as well as detailed and clear instructions.
