Bench seat / Entry table NOW TAKING GROUP BOOKINGS
The Course fee is $450 for the Bench seat, or $495 for the Entry table. GROUP BOOKINGS ONLY (4 – 6 people)
Join me for a ONE day workshop where I’ll show you how to make this gorgeous bench seat, or, if you prefer, we can give it taller legs and make it an entrance console/table. Give the entrance to your home a real uplift with this beautiful Australian hardwood piece, handmade by YOU! Say ‘No more!’ to the front door being a dumping ground for keys, shoes, school bags, wallets and hats. Instead, let’s create a beautiful and welcoming entrance to your home.
During our day together I’ll introduce you to the Domino joinery system – a commercial method of joinery which we’ll use to join the timber top of your bench seat/table top. Without ANY prior experience or skills necessary. Guided by me, in my workshop in Brookvale, I’ll teach you how to safely use tools like a drop saw, a drill and driver, an orbital sander, a router, and the drill press. I’ll also demonstrate my other machinery like the table saw and the FESTOOL domino; and give you an overview of how these tools are used in commercial furniture making.
PLEASE SPECIFY TIMBER COLOUR (LIGHT/DARK) + YOUR PREFERENCE TO MAKE EITHER A BENCH SEAT OR ENTRY TABLE IN ‘ORDER NOTES’ WHEN CHECKING OUT, PLUS ANY REQUESTS FOR A LONGER LENGTH TIMBER TOP.

During our day together I'll walk you through how to join timber and give it the best finish, just like the professional. In my small classes of four you’ll feel 100% supported, able to ask lots of questions, and in a relaxed, encouraging atmosphere. I’ll also explain how you can set up your own home workshop with basic tools and at minimal expense. Experience the joy, focus and connectedness that comes from building something with your own hands.
After our day together, you’ll leave my workshop not only brimming with new knowledge, but full of pride in your achievement, and empowered to continue your making journey. Not only that, but you’ll also take home a gorgeous piece of furniture, made by you! I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into my workshop.

Please note that this is a fully functioning commercial factory that I share with another maker. During our sessions together, there may be a lot of noise and ‘making’ that’s happening in the background. I hope you’ll appreciate the benefits of experiencing a real-life maker space and forgive the noise and mess that may come with it.
Bookings close one day before the session starts, unless sold out prior.
