Rustic Bench Making

  • Paul Williams Woodcraft Wyresdale Park, Scorton (map)

Spend a day in the woods learning how to make a fabulous rustic bench. Using a range of traditional hand tools, you will learn how to split a log (recently harvested from our own woodland), rough out with an axe before moving onto an ancient woodland devise (shave horse) for more accurate finishing. You will then learn how to create the mortise and tenon needed to bring your bench top and legs together, and how to use oak wedges to secure the legs in place. You will then have a fabulous bench suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
