Roubo in Sketch-up

This was my first project I have modeled on sketch-up. In this model I have left out the crochet, but on the real thing I will add one. all the dark gray parts will be ash. the 4 top pieces will be held together with nine blocks that will be like large floating tenons. They will be pinned through. The wagon vise uses 4 ash rails that the traveler moves on. On the facing sides of the traveler, I will have two blocks of ash slightly below the surface. I hope this will allow me to clamp some pieces there. I made the legs dovetail/tenon into the top so the bench can be disassembled. The lower front stretchers also will be bolted into the legs.
