Contemplation Bench

This sitting bench’s graceful curves are carved using a combination of power tools and hand tools. We’ll look at various carving implements available to woodworkers as well as alternative options that could make the job easier. I originally designed this bench back in 2005 so we’ll take some time to consider the overall look and how it might be improved upon. We will then create the new and improved version. A project like this will not only hone your woodworking skills, but also your eye for design.

Instructor: Marc Spagnuolo

The project includes:

  • 6 step by step lessons
  • 139 minutes of video instruction

$50.00

What You’ll Receive:

  • Detailed cut list and plans including a PDF and a SketchUp file.
  • Hours of detailed video instruction showing every step of the build, from wood selection to finishing.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Large open mortise & tenon joinery
  • Carving with power tools (angle grinder and die grinder)
  • Shaping with rasps

What You Need:

  • Basic woodworking tools including Table Saw, Bandsaw, Jointer, Planer, and Router.
