Roubo Workbench

I am calling this workbench completed. The pics show how this started out as a pile of lumber and was transformed into the workbench.

LOL Bruce, just woodworking.
Thanks Brian.

Just got a board from the BORG so I can make a cheap version of the Moxon Vise which I will need for my next project.

I just hope that the floor is strong enough. What a beast.
