André Jacob Roubo (1739–1791) was a French carpenter, cabinetmaker and author.
Roubo was born and died in Paris, and was the son and grandson of master cabinetmakers.
Roubo wrote several highly influential books on woodworking, an achievement which was especially notable given his relatively poor background and self-taught methods.His career peaked in 1774 when he published his masterwork treatise on woodworking, titled L'Art du Menuisier.
This long-standing work covered practically all methods and trades associated with woodworking.
Another of Roubo's legacies still used today is a design for a workbench, which has proven to be popular amongst modern woodworkers.A street in Paris, rue Roubo, was named after Roubo in 1850.
It is located in the 11th Arrondissement, an area inhabited by furniture manufacturers.
