Roubo Split Top Benchmaker's Hardware Package
Have you ever looked at a piece of woodworking brilliance and wished you’d made it? Wait no longer, for the best bench-makers in the business, Benchcrafted, are giving you this opportunity.
If you're after the workbench of your dreams, then there are only four pieces in the puzzle: a high-quality Benchcrafted Hardware Package for the nuts and bolts, a Tail Vice and Leg Vice for incredibly easy operation and finally and the Roubo Split Top Bench Plans to get you started. With these four products, you can now construct the pièce de résistance of any workshop by yourself!
Your only problem will be convincing your mates it was really you…
The Benchcrafted Barrel Nuts offer a quick, easy way to build knockdown joints for workbench bases. Normally when using bolts to join legs and rails, a square mortice must be cut in the rail to receive a hex nut and washer. Benchcrafted Barrel Nuts eliminate the more time consuming step of chopping a square mortice and fiddling with a small hex nut, washer and wrench in a deep, inaccessible mortice. You only need one tool and two hands to fit these barrel nuts.
Why a Benchcrafted Hardware Package?
Benchcrafted benches use extremely durable, high-quality materials that are designed to last more than just one lifetime. This is more than a workbench - it's the piece de resistance of any workshop and it's something that you can pass down through the generations. In short, it's a legacy.
If the prospect of building your own bench seems daunting at first, it’s because usually, it is. Typical fastening setups involving hex nuts and cross-dowels make a process that should be enjoyable, tiresome.
Benchcrafted has taken great care to eliminate the tedious parts of construction through innovative use of barrel and end cap barrel nuts for construction of knockdown joints. The result is a sterling bench without the back-breaking effort.
- Four Barrel Nuts

Is this bench right for me?
This ain’t no IKEA flat-pack. A Benchcrafted Classic bench will last a lifetime, built from the exceptional simplicity and timelessness of the Roubo style.
As the company quips, a Benchcrafted design is “as solid as humans can make it, short of growing a tree in the shape of a bench.”
