Roubo, take that

Here’s another reminder to watch the blog posts by Roald Renmælmo and Tomas Karlsson  – I’ve put links to their work before, but just want to remind folks that there’s very interesting work going on in Scandinavia that’s not spoons! Imagine –  PhD work on carpentry crafts. Today Roald added an English post about their reproduction of a bench from the shipwreck the Vasa – doesn’t it look great?

The almost finished workbench of the Vasa model are set up in our improvised workshop in Mariestad. Photo: Roald Renmælmo

If you like workbenches, etc – there’s lots more pictures here: http://hyvelbenk.wordpress.com/2014/06/22/the-vasa-workbench-rebuilt/

  1. Thanks for the photo and link, Peter. That is a great looking bench. The length would really be stable and I am glad to see all of the holdfast holes in the bench. It’s amazing what can be done with some creative use of holdfasts. Most workbenches need more holes!

  2. Excellent way of telling, and fastidious piece of
    writing to get facts concerning my presentation subject,
    which i am going to deliver in college.
