I agree with Carl ... GearBoxDesigns' bench looks sturdy and well designed, but isn't really a Roubo style. Here is a Roubo type bench I built for my daughter's pottery (albeit missing the leg-style clamp) ... The front legs are flush to the top for clamping purposes, the bench is strong and wont move while she throws the clay on it. This bench, as GearBoxDesigns', is built of construction fir. We bought 8x12 and then ripped it to just under 4", then hand planed to final thickness. There's about $50 worth of materials in it.
