Francis Beaulieu's French Oak Workbench

What do you get when a professional luthier shows up at the FORP II? An exquisite bench.

Enjoy these pics of Francis' work. It's the details, folks.

And in case you were wondering about Francis' day job, here's a small sample of his work. To see more, click here.


  1. I laughed when I saw the french fit for the planing stop. Delightful.

  2. A lot of people say "it's just a workbench" when it comes to construction quality or fit 'n finish. Francis clearly threw that memo out! Stunning work, love the form of the grease pot.

  3. Fantastic! Just what I expected from Francis

  4. Simply stunning, but what I would expect having seen him work.
