Build a Roubo Workbench Part 12 – The Finale (using the bench)

In this video series I show you how to make a solid Roubo workbench on a budget using readily available timber and hardware.

In this final video I show you some of the features of this bench, and how to use it!

  4. I enjoyed the whole series Jord! Thanks for doing this build. I know how much work that was to not only build the bench but film the process as well. Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!

  5. Great project Jord.I had a problem from about 6:50 in though, as I found it hard to distinguish between what you were saying due to the music being too loud, I have tinnitus, so it made it even worse for me, but really, do we need music at all? it seems to be creeping in everywhere, it might add drama to a silent movie, but otherwise I think it’s misplaced, just because you can doesn’t mean you should 😉 ;)Looking forward to the new year an more new projects.Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours. /\ / \ / \

  9. Thanks Jord, it’s been a great series and I have watched each and every video. I have bought the plans as a show of support for your channel which is easily the best in Oz. I may never build this bench as it may be beyond me, but even so the videos have been full of tips and tricks and useful advice so thanks very much for that.I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous new year – see you in ’14!

  24. Definitely using this as a go by when I build my first bench. One of, if not the best instructional video I’ve watched. Question though, why did you not do a split top? Seems like almost all the other videos on YT are doing split tops. I’m new to all this so I don’t really know too much about all this stuff so that’s why I ask. Thanks and look forward to more videos. I’ve watched nearly all yours so far,

  26. I saw all the episodes in one take, very nice job, it was indeed fun watching. May i ask, how much you think a shop could charge to make the exact same bench (excluding the materials)? Cheers and greets from Greece, in the other side of the earth 😛
