Groggy's Workbench

In August 2008, hobbiest woodworker Groggy, started working on a humble roubo workbench in Melbourne. Over the past 2 years his documented the build in detail over at the Woodwork Forums. The Bench is 2520 x 650 x 140mm and made from solid Jarrah. He estimates the bench weights in at 200kg. It has a Bench Crafted wagon vice and a sliding deadmen. A unique feature of his bench is under the flush shelf is a purpose built parallel clamp rack. Very handy. There's a still a few things to finish off, but it's already a fantastic bench.

  1. The bench is actually over 500kgs, the top by itself is well over 200.
