  1. Thanks for the replies. You guys gave some good ideas to consider. Thank you. Yeah, I do plan lower stretchers and later realized I didn't draw those in the sketch.
  2. I'm preparing to build a Roubo bench. I'm a small guy, not very strong, so I'm thinking about the logistics imposed by the weight of this thing as it develops. Here's what I'm thinking right now, and I would like to know if you see any problems with this approach. I'm considering building the base first as shown below, link included as well. A sketch artist I'm not :-). The top rails can be temporary. https://www.dropbox.com/s/2xsvgdkxxpqp6pg/WIN_20171116_08_25_07_Pro.jpg?dl=0 I'll make sure the top rails are level, parallel and coplanar. Then, I'll laminate the top in place. I'll build around the tenons and when finished, wedge them. This should alleviate a lot of heavy lifting. Thoughts? In advance, Thank You!
