Blacksmith and white smith Peter Ross made a copy of the holdfast shown in Andre Roubo’s “Art du Menuisier” using Roubo illustrations and specifications as a roadmap.
The result is impressive to say the least.
I wrote up a detailed description on my blog at Popular Woodworking Magazine. Check it out here. And definitely check out Peter Ross’s web site. If you need dividers, holdfasts, locks or hinges, you will not be disappointed.
