Coming Soon...Build the Plate 11 Roubo



"The angels in heaven work at Roubo's bench to furnish the mansions of paradise. Why should us mortals use anything less?" - Jarvil Alubanis

If you've always dreamed of building a totally authentic Roubo bench from Plate 11, using wood from Roubo's back yard, you can stop using the excuse "in the next life".

This summer, Benchcrafted is organizing a rare event where participants can build a full-size Roubo, using massive and ancient French oak and blacksmith-made iron accessories in a modern-day Roubo-esque workshop, with a unique group of fellow Roubo enthusiasts.

Space will be limited, so keep an eye on this blog as details unfold.

  3. "...blacksmith-made iron accessories ..."

    I spy with my little eye a beautiful (blacksmith made) holdfast in plate 11.

    I'm guessing you're going to go the whole nine yards on this one. Sounds awesome.
