This project is nothing special as most woodworkers have built a Split Top Roubo Workbench or just any woodworking workbench. I recently completed my workbench and have published my work on lumberjocks.com . I also have a blog which will bring you step-by-step throughout the entire process of me crafting this workbench. >
This hand crafted Split Top Roubo Workbench took me about 25 months to complete which included 12 months for wood drying time and bench parts gathering. It was based on a plan by Benchcrafted and my tail vise is of Benchcrafted as well. The wood material used for this workbench is a type of tropical hard wood namely Meranti Wood, which is found here in Malaysia. The finish is a simple linseed oil. During the crafting process of this workbench, minor mistakes were made and corrected.
Well, do take a look at my Split Top Roubo Workbench and leave a comment and tell me what you think. My Next project will be a Maloof-inspired rocker chair using a Meranti wood. I think it will be the first Sam Maloof rocker in tropical hardwood.
