Roubo Workbench Update

I've been using my workbench for a while now and it's been working great!  I've successfully finished a few projects and it's been a joy to use.  I wish I had made it earlier!

One thing I didn't add when I first built it was a tail vice.  I was definitely missing that, so I decided to make one.  It was simple enough to make.  I just bought a screw from Lee Valley Tools and used that along with handmade parts for the rest.  I should do a post on it with more detail.

I just recently flattened it.  This takes about an thirty minutes to an hour with my handplane.  It's fairly easy to do and the time goes by quickly!
