Description: Move over Sjoberg, we're building the mother, father and grandparents of all benches. If you've been thinking of buying a bench, why not build one?In this class we will be building the bench made famous by Andre Roubo (1739-1791) in his book L'Art du Menuisier (The Art of Joinery).The size and heft (north of 450 lbs!) of this bench make it ideal for hand tool use. The bench will be made from solid select grade European Beech with a Sapele or Cherry leg vise, deadman and removable tool board. The top is a massive 24" x 79" x 4" thick (no aprons hiding a thinner top on this bench!!). The legs are 3-1/2" x 5" x 32"(+- as the bench will be optimized to each student's height). The bench will be fitted with a leg vise, sliding tail vise, sliding deadman and a removable tool board that fits down the middle of the bench top.Don't worry about getting this monster home: the bench is designed with knock-down hardware to aide in transport to your shop. Once in it's new home, though, we suggest you don't move it again - your back will thank you!All of the wood required to build the bench is included in the cost of the class.A variety of hardware options are available for the bench, but are not include in the cost of the class. Upon signing up for the class the instructor will contact you to discuss your options.If you'd like to see a sample bench, stop by the store. Or call us and we can email one out to you.
