Join woodworker and instructor Wayne Ford for this hands-on build of a functional woodworking workbench. Students will learn design principles and joinery techniques as they interpret a drawing. Discussion during the class will cover bench vice selection and installation, additional optional bench features, and custom sizing of the piece. The project will be constructed of 2" dimensional lumber with mortise and tenon joints and a laminated plywood and masonite top. The measurements for the bench built in the class are 2 feet by 4 feet and the height can be adjusted for the student's comfort. This class takes place in the classroom at the HRMM Wooden Boat School located at 86 Rondout Landing in Kingston's historic Rondout district.
The Wooden Boat School was founded by the Hudson River Maritime Museum in 2015 to preserve the maritime craft traditions of the Hudson Valley and to teach a hands-on interpretation of the living history of the Hudson River. The school offers diverse curriculum and opportunities which inspire skills in woodworking, boat building, and maritime craft. Also available are restoration services for wooden boats. A class calendar and details can be found at www.hrmm.org/woodworking.
