It's 2009 and I still haven't made a new workbench I promised myself when I bought an Emmert patternmakers vise at an antique tool auction in Indianapolis last spring.After the auction I bought Workbenches by Chris Schwarz and was planning on building the Andre Roubo bench he built in the book.
Then a couple of months ago while attending Woodworking in America Conference in Berea KY, I saw Roy Underhill's version of the Roubo bench and fell in love with it.The bench was solid as a rock with its back legs splayed out and it didn't rack from side to side.
Something my current bench is horrible with.Luckily there's a write up of Roy's Roubo bench in his new book The Woodwright's Guide; Working Wood with Wedge & Edge.Because there were things that I liked in both benches, I decided to incorporate some of the features of both and design something that would fit my needs....
