I’ve been doing a bit of comparing the split top Roubo bench by Benchcrafted and the one that Chris Schwarz describes in his book “The Anarchist’s Workbench”. Both benches are similar with some major differences. The most obvious is the split top, but there is also a difference in the construction methodology. The Benchcrafted bench uses some bolts for knock down abilities whereas The Anarchist’s workbench uses draw bore tenons. If you have built either of these benches, I’m curious as to your real world experiences with either of these approaches. I’m getting ready to build a new bench and am torn as to which way to go. My bench will be in my garage/shop which is not currently heated (I hope to change that!) and I don’t really look to be moving it much, but there is a chance of a move (one time) down the road to a new shop. Thanks in advance for your feedback.
