Detailed Description

Build a Workbench with Jim Dillon

Saturday & Sunday, August 5 - 6, 2017 from 9:00am to 5:00pm
Class Size: 6
Hands-On Workshop

Mike Siemsen (The Naked Woodworker), Chris Schwarz (Workbenches), and others have developed a version of the traditional "Nicholson" workbench that is stout, heavy, easily disassembled, and simple to build. In this intensive class, you will construct your own workbench that will be ready to take home and put to work building a lifetime's worth of projects. The completed bench, built of Southern Yellow Pine, will be 6 feet long, slightly under 2 feet wide, and as tall as your wrist when you stand relaxed (perfect planing height). The design is flexible enough that you may add a vise if you wish, but also secures work to the bench perfectly fine with just holdfasts (not included) and the hardwood crook. Come to class prepared for two very full days of hard work!
PLEASE NOTE: There is a separate $175.00 materials fee payable to the instructor on the day of class (cash or check only).

This is a list of recommended tools:

  • cordless drill/driver
  • #2 square drive bits
  • basic measuring and marking tools
  • chisels
  • hammer
  • 9/16" socket and ratchet driver

Highland Woodworking reserves the right to cancel any class. Full refunds will be issued in that event. Students withdrawing from a class must notify Highland Woodworking 10 or more days prior to the beginning of the class to receive full credit or refund. No refund or credit will be issued with less than 10 days' notice. For labor intensive or multiple day courses, we reserve the right to issue special refund stipulations which will be noted in the class advertisement at the time of posting.
