Roubo- 2 years later

OK guys and gals,
I built a Split Top Roubo 2 years ago and love the bench, but am contemplating making some changes.

Re: Review of Bosch's new JS572EL Jigsaw

Creosote,
Here are some images of the JS572E Jigsaw and it's Blade guide system. As you can see by the last image....It works! That's a straight rip cut in 8/4" Hard Maple.

Re: MiniMax 16

Re: Darrell Peart inspired night stand

Corwin,
