This is a joint project with my friend, James. We are building a riff on the classic Roubo Plate 11 style woodworker’s workbench, along with coordinating mobile stands for James’s chop and bench saws. This project is currently in the shop, so check back for updates!
Northern hard maple boards for the top.
Cutting top boards to length with a couple of inches extra.
Using the tracksaw to rip a straight edge of some of the lumber.
Top boards cut to width and length plus a bit extra.
A rough idea how the 4″ x 24″ x 72″ top will look once it’s all glued up.
Based on an average density of 44 lb/ft3 for hard maple, the top alone should weigh about 175 pounds.
