Victoria Posted February 16, 2016 Share Posted February 16, 2016 My latest project, Roubo workbench, took several weeks ( about three hours a day if I'm lucky). At the beginning I wanted to make it just as a background for my WIP pics, but after reading and studying Christopher Schwarz books I realised that this project was going to be probably the most exciting. I learned so much, so many techniques (mostly in metalworking) that I even considering making another bench, Shaker style one is my favorite at the moment.
