The Petite 21st Century Split-Top Roubo Plus

The bench I’m planning to build is the offspring of a number of benches.  I’ve read everything I could get my hands on, sometimes over and over and over…just call me slow on the uptake.  This all started with WIA 2010 where I saw the different benches used in the demonstrations during lectures as well as the benches in the marketplace.  I realized that I was not going to transition to a hybrid or hand tool woodworker with the bench I currently had.  Since that time, I’ve seen many more benches (click here for slideshow of the benches at NEWWS last year), scoured blogs for details of workbench builds and drawn several different bench styles.
