Workbench Incoming

Some of you may have noticed some changes happening in the background of the set. For those that are interested, Paul has blogged on the upcoming changes here and here. This will have a positive affect on Woodworking Masterclasses.

It has been the natural progression from the last few years of putting together tool and technique videos alongside projects here, as well as releasing Paul’s books and DVD set on the Essential Woodworking Hand Tools. Paul and Joseph put together what we call our garage set, where we have been experimenting with filming in the kind of space that a lot of people have available to them. This was a test before our forthcoming move into our new workspace over the next few months.

The most imminent result of all of this is that, starting this week, the new series on how to make a workbench will be aired on Woodworking Masterclasses. This will be in addition to all of our usual content. It will also be published with a two week delay on YouTube, but we wanted you all to have early access to the videos with all the drawings included.

This will be a great project to make for those of you yet to make a bench and there are loads of techniques and tips to learn for those of you who have already have one. We’re very exited to be able to share this series with you.

Introduction coming on Wednesday 1st, episode 1 on Friday 3rd of November and then at two weekly intervals.

Many thanks from the whole team,Phil, Manager of Woodworking Masterclasses

    I thought I would mention that you state the dates are in October and it should be November.

    Thanks for all the great content! I can’t wait to make this for my first real workbench!

    I’ve held off making my workbench waiting for this! Looking forward to it .

    Following this with great interest.
    I think my first home built workbench project is about to get under way.
