Live Edge Bench
The five-day class begins with full-scale shop drawings. You’ll then move on to creating the structure of the bench. Creating an elegantly curved crest tops off this wonderful creation.
A class trip to Hearne Hardwoods will be scheduled at least two months prior to the class to choose slabs for the project.
Some of the skills learned in the Live Edge Bench class are:
- How to design an elegant, yet simple, design
- Utilizing live edge material for furniture
- Shaping a seat and crest for comfort and appearance
Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through us or on your own and shipped to our shop at least four weeks prior to the class.
Each student should supply his, or her, own:
- Safety glasses and hearing protection
- Combination or machinist square
- Bevel gauge
- Bench chisels
- Carvers mallet
- Dovetail saw
- Marking gauge
- Smooth plane or jack plane
- Block plane
- Tape measure or folding rule
If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic, there are plenty of tools for your use in class.
