Since the founding of the Centre for Fine Woodworking we have built benches especially to meet our needs. The bench is fundamental in its role within any workshop and we feel the higher the quality the bench is, the more care will be taken in its use, and will reflect in the work being carried out.
A true and flat surface acts like a datum for your work – combine this with flexible and effective ways of holding your work and a rock solid support structure which positions the work surface at the correct height for your endeavours and you have a multi–faceted holding system for fine woodworking.
Packing and freighting the bench back home is the student’s responsibility but we are happy to help with this.
This course is for students with intermediate skill level.

Master classes are frequently available to assist students to move from project–based courses to their own design and make, or to learn a new complex technique or process from one of our visiting tutors.
