Detailed Description

Benchcrafted Split Top Roubo Bench Plan

The Split Top Roubo bench plan was inspired by the bench illustrated in Plate 11 of Andre Roubo's classic 17th century treatise on cabinetmaking, L'Art du Menuisier. The design has been enhanced to incorporate the advantages that the Benchcrafted Tail Vise and Glide Leg Vise provide. It's a sophisticated set of plans that take the guesswork out of building the workbench of your dreams. The measured drawings and detailed construction notes will enable you to successfully build the bench and install the vises so that they work perfectly.

The plans consist of four 20" x 30" printed pages of measured drawings that show the bench in all the necessary views including exploded, with specific details describing each part. Concise yet extremely detailed, the drawings are printed on 20-lb. bond paper and shipped rolled in a cardboard tube. Full construction notes can be downloaded here.

The completed bench measures 87" long x 35" tall, with a benchtop that is 24" wide x 4" thick. It typically weighs well over 300 lbs. depending upon the species of wood you select to build it.

The plans can be purchased here by themselves, or you may purchase our Benchmaker's Package below which in addition to the plans includes all the vises and necessary assembly hardware (everything you need except the wood).
