The Wood and Shop Traditional Woodworking School is finished, so I wanted to share these photos so you can see inside! 10 workbenches fill the school, which includes six Moravian workbenches, two traditional Roubo workbenches, one French pine bench, and one Swedish made workbench. This lovely maple workbench top was cut last year by a guy down in North Carolina:
I recently finished installing these wagon-style tail vises, made by my friend Will Myers. They glide sooo smoothly!
I had a lot of joints to cut, including twenty of these wedged tenons…and just about twenty of every joint:
I built tongue & groove tool shelves below four of the workbenches to hold many of the hand tools required for the woodworking school:
Nine of the benches have traditional leg vises with maple vise screws:
Will Myers will be teaching a class this May on building the Hancock Shaker Candle Stand (a few spots left…register here). It’ll be an incredible class where students will learn many valuable skills, including basic wood turning, sliding dovetails, using bow saws & compass planes & spokeshaves, etc.
Here are the classes that are scheduled for 2018 so far:
2018 CLASS SCHEDULE:
Here are some historical shelves & tills that I’ve built to hold the large variety of hand tools for the school.
Here are some nice winter images of the woodworking school:
I hope you can come out and join us for some classes!
