What’s in a Kit?
For many woodworkers, the biggest hurdle to building their own bench is having the tools and space necessary to dimension stock and glue up the top. Our kits get you past those issues, by providing the parts completed and ready for fine-tuning and assembly.
Each bench kit includes:
- A bench top with completed mortises for the legs (3-1/2″ thick, 23-1/2″ wide, and optional 6′ & 7′ lengths).
- Legs with completed mortises for the stretchers, and oversized tenons for the top (3-1/2″ by 5″, tenons are 1/16″ oversized).
- Stretchers with oversized tenons for the legs (also 1/16″ oversized).
Once the kit arrives, you let it acclimate to your shop and then fine-tune the tenons to fit the already completed mortises. Then you’re only a glue-up away from getting to work on your very own Plate 11 Roubo workbench!
