The Great Roubo Workbench Ruse Revealed

As some of you have figured out by now and as I have revealed that this classic traditional French style workbench fit in a medium flat rate shipping box, is a one twelfth scale, 1 inch equals 1 foot model.  I have built a Nicholson bench of this style in the scale model cabinet shop, so this is number 2.

I have sold this bench, but will be building another miniature project in the near future.



  1. Did you use 1/12th scale tools? That would have been more sporting.

  2. I was just a bit amazed by the pace of construction.

  3. Stephen is a much bigger guy than I ever thought he was!
