CRAFT A WOODOWORKING BENCH
19th January - 21st January 2024
The course will run from of from 9:00-4:00. The first day will be centred around docking the dimensioned components to length, cutting joinery for the two end frames and drilling for the threaded connectors running through the two main rails. On the second day we will focus on detailing and glueing up the end frames. And on the final day dress the top, sand and detail the assembled bench and fit a vice and other work holding accessories.
Both a front and surface vice are included in the cost of the course. For those who would like to splurge, I would highly recommend a HNT Gordon bench and tail vice. They are excellent precision machined vices made in Northern NSW. You are welcome to order one or both of these yourself and the cost of the included vices will be taken off the course cost. We will also fit a tool well/planing stop to the centre of the bench and dog holes for clamping and supporting long work pieces.
The timber is all select grade Victorian Ash. As the bench is built around components of a set length, there’s no capacity to increase the overall size beyond adjusting the height for each user. The overall size of the top can be reduced if necessary.
