The Sawyer’s Bench

Presented by Tom Fidgen

For the first time in Australia Tom Fidgen, author of ‘Made by Hand’ and ‘The Unplugged Woodshop’ will be joining the Melbourne Guild of Fine Woodworking to teach ‘The Sawyer’s Bench’.

The first step taken in any woodworking project, regardless of the design or construction style is rough dimensioning material. There is nowhere better suited for carrying out this task than on a dedicated saw bench.

Join Tom Fidgen in this practical and useful class where students will dimension parts, cut robust joinery, and leave with a custom saw bench suited to their specific work and body size.

Working wood with hand tools demands we invest a fair amount of time pushing and pulling a handsaw, so we owe it to ourselves to take a closer look at our sawing setup and make this affair as enjoyable and efficient as possible. The hours spent breaking down furniture components and assembling our cut lists will be much more satisfying.

Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity!!
