Service Description

Tim will be leading a three-day workbench building intensive at Chisel and Dowel in July. This comprehensive course runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day, offering participants hands-on experience in crafting a solid timber workbench. Day 1: Precision and Preparation The first day focuses on docking the dimensioned components to length, cutting joinery for the two end frames, and drilling for the threaded connectors running through the main rails. Day 2: Detailing and Assembly On the second day, participants will detail and glue up the end frames, ensuring all components fit perfectly. Day 3: Finishing Touches The final day involves dressing the top, sanding and detailing the assembled bench, and fitting a vice and other work-holding accessories. Course Highlights Both a front and surface vice are included in the course cost. For those looking to upgrade, Tim highly recommends the HNT Gordon bench and tail vice, precision-machined vices made in Northern NSW. Participants can order these vices separately, and the cost of the included vices will be deducted from the course fee. Additional features include fitting a tool well/planing stop in the center of the bench and adding dog holes for clamping and supporting long workpieces. The timber used is select-grade Victorian Ash. While the overall size of the bench is fixed, the height can be adjusted for individual needs. The top size can also be reduced if necessary. Course Details Cost: $3300 Deposit: 50% required to secure your spot Balance: Due one week before the class This course is ideal for woodworking enthusiasts looking to create a high-quality, custom workbench under the expert guidance of Tim.
