Video: Build a Roubo Workbench Part 2 – Bench-Top Glue Up & Pre-Flattening

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 video I show you the process I use to Laminate the top Slabs and then flatten it using my monster 14″ jointer.

  9. If you don’t have a planer and joiner, and don’t want to go to all the trouble of gluing all these pieces together, you can buy a glue-lam beam from a contractor lumber yard.

  11. I am new to woodworking. Why don’t you flip the slab over and use your jointer (again) to flatten the second face? Is there an advantage to using the thickness planer to flatten the second face? Thanks for the help and not laughing too hard at my question!
