Bench Plans In The Works




We've had lots of requests for plans for our Roubo-style, split-top bench featuring both of our vises.

I'm glad to announce that complete plans, as well as construction notes and a 3-d model are in the works and will be available soon. Although our instructions cover the installation process, these plans will allow vise users and bench builders to see the vises in three dimensions and even "disassemble" the bench to see exactly how the bench is put together around the Glide and Tail (wagon) Vise. The drawings are being prepared by draftsman Louis Bois. Louis did the bench drawings for Christopher Schwarz's Workbenches book, as well as the plans for the Holtzapffel bench from Woodworking Magazine.

We'd hoped to have these plans ready for the Woodworking In America Hand Tools conference next month, but that's not going to happen. However, if you're interested in receiving an email when they are ready, please drop us a line at info@benchcrafted.com. We'll also have a sign-up sheet at the show for those attending.
