This workbench is based on a design by the 18th century French carpenter and author André Jacob Roubo. Guido Henn, the German master cabinetmaker, built it for Fine-Tools.com. Henn has 20 + years of experience as a woodworker, teacher, and has written for a number of woodworking publications. A modern adaptation with high-quality accessories first became possible because of the hardware developed and produced by the American manufacturer Benchcrafted. As Henn built the prototype bench, we also drew up a detailed set of plans and made explanatory videos so that any reasonably experienced woodworker could build their own Roubo-style workbench.
