The real work of any woodworking project happens at the workbench, perhaps the most important tool in the shop. Having the right bench, like the right tool, makes all the difference. Students will design and build a customized workbench that focuses on their personal requirements as well as the type of work they intend to complete. After designing the bench, the priority will be on building the top, with the main focus on selecting, milling, and assembling the top along with placing dog holes, squaring and flattening. The selection and location of vices, along with various jigs to enhance the versatility of the bench, will be discussed in detail. Doug will also discuss ways to build a solid base. Great pride can be taken in building a masters workbench. When designed and built by YOU, it will give years of enjoyment and be the envy of all your other woodworking buddies.

There is an annual, nonrefundable registration fee of $45.

This registration fee is not a part of the class fee and is not deducted from the final balance due. This is the financial binding that locks you into the class and starts the registration process. This fee does not apply to students who only take one single day workshop.
