Benchmaking

Ken Burton

September 15-16

Need some extra seats around the table? How about a place on the porch to sit and pull your garden boots on? Why not make a nice bench that serves both these purposes well and gives you some woodworking experience at the same time? In just one weekend, master craftsman Ken Burton will guide you through the process of making a great, two-seat bench using a combination of hand and power tools. By the end of the class you’ll go home with a nice new piece of furniture and an expanded skill set. Beginner
