Almost everything I make is for sale, (excluding children according to my wife), and sometimes pieces just end up having a permanent home here, but I am very happy to welcome the Roubo workbench as part of my permanent collection. I have certainly put a lot of hard work and love into it, and I am excited about using it for many years to come. I hope this workbench will last for a generation or two, and I hope whoever uses it next will love it as much as I do.
I subscribe to a number of woodworking blogs, and I see a growing trend of people creating workbenches like this. In a way, I think building a workbench is somewhat like a rite of passage for woodworkers.
That being said, I’d like to send out a special thanks into the cyber-sphere to Christopher Schwarz for his Workbench books and other writings. I’d also like to thank Shannon Rogers from The Hand Tool School for teaching me how to use my hand tools properly.
Ladies and Gentlemen; I’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the FbY workforce:
I hope you have enjoyed this series, and thanks for all the lovely and funny comments!
