Six day course.

The workbench is the centre of any wood workshop, so it’s important that it is well made and ergonomically sound. On this course you will make the same bench that Chris uses for his work. With an 80mm thick top and with front and tail vices and bench dogs it is robust and has excellent work holding facilities. The dimensions can be adjusted to your requirements, so you will leave with a valuable woodworking tool and also the satisfaction that you will be working at a bench you have made yourself.
