We’ve had a cancellation in my 18th-century Workbench Class at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking that takes place June 9-13.
If you’d like to claim that space, call Paula at 317-535-4013 or register via the school’s web site: marcadams.com.
This is the only workbench class I’m teaching this year, and I don’t have any more scheduled for 2015 or 2016 as yet. We’ll be building French-style workbenches using some awesome 12/4 ash from Horizon Wood Products.
Your bench can be up to 8’ long and incorporate any vises that you wish to purchase. The bench design will accommodate almost any vise, from the Benchcrafted products to an iron quick-release vise. The French bench is truly “open architecture.”
Warning: These classes are physical. There is heavy lifting involved. Long days. Camaraderie and brown liquor (after class) are the usual by-products of this class. I highly recommend these classes as a way to get your “dream bench” completed. The heavy equipment (a 24”-wide planer!) helps get the job done so you can get on with the task/joy of building furniture.
Hope you can join us. If we don’t have a taker, I’ll build an extra bench and sell it so I can get an extra kidney and liver installed.
