Bench and Stool Making
Make a rustic greenwood bench or simple stool using hand tools. You'll learn how to use axes, drawknives and hand augers to split and shape ash wood for the legs and drill your plank top before using oak wedges to assemble your bench. Your creation will be ready to take home and will look fantastic indoors or out.
Wow, we are still reeling after the amazing day we just spent with you..
We can't actually believe we built a bench each in 9.5 hours....Your tutoring, good humour, patience and encouragement were all fantastic. We couldn't have asked for anything more of the day! Thank you so much,
Thank you so much for a great bench making day yesterday, it was a perfect birthday present. The Footprint is such a beautiful place and the green wood-working completely absorbing. Thank you for your patient instruction, even as the light faded as we went into extra time.
We just wanted you to know how much we had enjoyed our day bench making. It was a brilliant experience and we are both absolutely thrilled with the benches. They fit in our space perfectly and look stunning. We loved our day out and would recommend it to anyone.
Thank you Gareth for such a lovely day yesterday. We both came away with a beautiful bench and the satisfaction that we had learned a completely new skill with friendly people in wonderfully peaceful surroundings. An excellent way to recharge our batteries. Your course should be available on prescription!
