  1. Hello!
    I love the Roubo.
    I finished a Scandinavian bench two years ago, and now have been experiencing the itch to build another bench. I have resisted the siren song of the Roubo bench so far, but am succumbing now.
    I wonder if you might be willing to swap a few emails so I can pick your brain on your Roubo build. By the pictures, it seems you built your bench much the same way that I plan to build mine.
    You can reach me here (WordPress) I think, or directly at:

    Thanks and nice work!!!!
