Progressing on Split Top Roubo Bench....

Installed a 1x1 inch V-bar (metal) for the sliding deadman to the long stretcher. 3 sets of  2 inch screw bolt are welded to the inner side of the V-bar ( as shown in the pic).

Edited: As you can notice that the wood are slightly darker now, more brownish in color. This is simply because the woods are now coated with 2 coats of Linseed Oil.
