The Benchcrafted brothers have officially opened registration for the French Oak Roubo Project II, which will be held Nov. 8-14, 2015 (that’s next November).
If that’s all you need to hear, click on over to the Benchcrafted site here and register.
The seven-day event costs $4,800 – that includes the incredible ancient wood, the blacksmith-made hardware, access to the world-class machinery of Bo Childs, lunch each day and all the assistance you need to build the bench. While I know there are those who will scoff at the price, I dare them to offer this sort of class themselves. The Benchcrafted folks (and the assistants) do this because it’s fun – not to make money.
I’ll be there (building a bench for a customer) and helping out all week. I can’t wait.
