A long day today but I finished the Roubo Workbench, I have yet to put a ‘finish’ on the bench tomorrow, Moses T’s St. John’s Oil, a coat or two. I finished the dovetailed drawer, half blind on the front and through on the back, in pine. The bottom is a single piece of maple, feathered on the edges and inserted in the groove on the sides and front.
As I said before all of my material was to dimension before I started, hence the speed with which I finished this project. All joints, dovetail mortise and tenon were glued with Fish Glue. Here is a picture of all of the parts for this project.
Grueling work, big pieces and I had to bend over a lot. But I am happy to get the job done. I will now put it up for sale. Here is the finished bench.
