Detailed Description

Roubo Workbench Top

Between the two of them, Roy Underhill and Christopher Schwarz have helped resurrect interest in the methods and tools of 18th-century master cabinetmaker Andre Jacob Roubo. Roubo's massive 4-inch-thick workbench in particular has attracted the attention of many serious 21st-century woodworkers, and several different sets of plans are now available to help guide you through its construction.

One of the challenges in constructing a bench of this magnitude is laminating the benchtop and making its surface flat and its edges square to the surface. Our 4-inch-thick laminated hard maple Roubo workbench top will provide all the flatness, rigidity and mass you will ever need for all of your woodworking, whether with hand tools or power tools.

Each of our benchtops consists of a pair of hard maple laminated slabs, each 4 inches thick by 12 inches wide, and available in either 6-foot or 8-foot length. Total weight of the pair of 6-foot-long sections is approx. 180 lbs. Total weight of the pair of 8-foot-long sections is approx. 240 lbs. The 12 inch-wide sections can be used as-is to build a split-top version of the Roubo bench, or they may be joined together after they arrive in your shop to form a full-size 24 inch-wide benchtop. (Note: Each 12 inch-wide section is furnished pre-bored for the included Domino tenons to ensure perfect alignment.)

Each benchtop is made to our specifications after we receive your order, protected with one coat of boiled linseed oil finish, and shipped to you securely packed in two wooden crates. Please allow 3-6 weeks for delivery.

Notice to residents of California: Please read our Proposition 65 warning.
