Build a Bench

It's gonna look something like this
March is here and I just wanted to give a little background on the presentation coming up at the Landmarks Preservation Resource Center on Saturday March 21st at 10am. Several of this year's workshops are going help people gain some basic hand carpentry skills by having participants do some projects.

The first project is going to be to build a version of sawing bench shown above. The skill emphasis in this project is primarily measuring and layout, along with sawing accurately. There will also be some hand planing and fastening using screws or nails. Everyone will also learn a couple of basic woodworking joints. 

We'll have enough tools and materials for 8 people to work along and keep the bench they build. While it is a saw bench it's perfectly good for sitting too, as well as plants, or what have you.
