Learn how to scale-up your joinery skills for some super-sized tenons in episode one of the Hybrid Roubo Workbench.
Learn how to craft three distinct tenon styles: stopped tenons, wedged through tenons, and a beautiful dovetailed tenon that brings your workbench leg assemblies together with a tight-fitting wedge.
The workbench begins to take shape as the leg assemblies are glued together and the dovetailed mortise and tenon joinery is test-fit.
