This workbench is simple enough and cheap enough that you can make it in a morning, and yet it's big enough for serious woodworking and hobby projects. All the dimensions and pieces are shown in Figures A, B and C, and keyed to the Cutting List in Additional Information (below).

See how to build this massive, maple workbench from start to finish in our six-part video workshop.
This bench features a sturdy top and a trestle base is rigid enough to resist any racking forces.
Lie-Nielsen Toolworks continues to turn back the clock (a good thing in the world of hand-tool woodworking). The bench will be more expensive than the two styles now offered by Lie-Nielsen, a European bench starting at $2,000, and a David Charlesworth-style bench for $1,500. But if you’ve seen these benches at shows or in other shops, you know that the quality justifies the wait.
Chris is a contributing editor to Popular Woodworking Magazine and the publisher at Lost Art Press. Very interesting to see how quickly after being reintroduced by The Schwarz that Roubo went more or less mainstream.
When Roy Underhill went to a Shaker Village, he showed some footage of a Roubo bench, and the leg vise was particularly interesting.
Even if they don’t sell thousands of these benches, at least thousands of woodworkers will see this bench and, hopefully, be drawn to its design. I loved your book, but the one thing you didn’t explain was how to build a bench for hand tool (or power tool) woodworking using hand tools without having a bench to work on. In all seriousness, there are several reasons I am really glad they are offering this bench, and it really looks like a wonderful bench. At long last, it looks like someone is offering a bench for sale that is as good as one you can make yourself. You know, having a lot of catalogs (wish books?) can trigger consumer behavior not quite intended by the company – buy lumber and build your own workbench. As a major bonus, there are some pictures of workbenches that will inspire you to build your own – or leave you drooling uncontrollably. When the weather got warm again in the spring of 2007, I quickly jumped on the opportunity to get started on some outdoor projects.


At some point in the past, a resident of this house apparently decided to remodel the kitchen and moved the old kitchen into the garage.
This is the space that was left over after pulling the old kitchen counter out of the garage.
Not one to pass up an opportunity to play with a toy, I whipped out my copy of Sketchup and started drawing plans for my new workbench.
After getting the top frame done, I clamped some legs to it so I could line it up on the wall. After putting in the frame for the shelf, I decided it was time to clamp the tabletop down and attach it to the frame. After some planning about space and layout in the garage, I decided to dive into the construction of a workbench. I also installed pegboard along the entire NW wall and on the half of the SE wall that wasn't finished. Then I cut some Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) for the benchtop, overhanging each side by about 3". I ended up marking the studs using a studfinder through the drywall and then screwing (2 screws at each stud) a long 2×4 along the whole wall. Appreciate your approach and look forward to a continued dialogue as I move forward with this. I haven’t anything useful to add but wish to thank you for your efforts putting your experience on-line for all to read and view. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. Add pegboard, a bench vise and a few other accessories and you'll have a serious work center. Use gallon paint cans to support the lower shelf frame when you're attaching it to the main workbench legs. Mount a power strip to one of the legs and you'll have all the power you need for tools and chargers. Mike’s table, shown above, has a torsion-box top, and uses — are you ready for this?
The bench is quite similar to the version I built for Woodworking Magazine, with a few exceptions. The company has temporarily suspended taking orders for benches until it can reduce the waiting list, which Thomas says is now at about nine months. I saw a drill press table in a Rockler catalog, and for less than $15 of materials, built my own, saving at least $85, plus shipping, gotta remember the damn shipping.


The tools are just thrown up on the wall for now; I promise to get organized before I purchase the empennage kit. I stuck to the plans on height (33") because I knew the casters would add a few inches. I didn’t know it at the time, but they are pretty much the top (first step) of the workbenches, with different dimensions. I constructed that page as a collection of ideas from scrounging around the Internet and watching the forums. I really think taht this is a well thought out design, especially the adjustable height legs with locks, since I usually have to bend over to use most benches.
The two ends of the base are a bit different , there’s extra stretchers in there to attach the top, plus cross-bolts that allow the bench to be knocked down. I’ll use that one for awhile before building a second one, hopefully with some improvements.
When hooked up to my iPhone, they are loud enough to hear through my hearing protection (which I use religiously with power tools).
Figuring I'd be replacing the top a few times during the project, I secured it down with some countersunk screws. A buddy down the street has some like it, and I was able to hang off the edges of them, they were rock solid.
Not to mention using up some of the melamine left over from my work table and router table projects. I would say adding that decreased the temperature in my garage in the middle of the summer by 10 degrees.
This is an accessory not shown in Roubo, but is very handy for securing wide panels and doors.
Designed by Charlie Kocourek, its telescoping legs are torsion boxes, and the bench is raised and lowered by an ordinary scissors jack. Standard ?” pipe clamps lock the legs into one solid base unit at the desired height.
A second scissors jack raises the bench off the floor and onto its mobile base, allowing the bench to be wheeled around.
