NOTE:Just so you know, this is an older workbench series. Paul has a newer Workbench series. If you are interested in the updated version of Paul’s workbench please click the button down below. This page links to a cutting list, tools list, FAQS and much more.

This has been a most successful series. Not sure if it’s because we do it in the garden (yard US) or because everyone must have a good bench and this one beats all the rest hands down , hands on and it meets the criteria of joiners, furniture makers and general woodworkers. This presents the single most important piece of equipment in the hand tool training program that follows through our online broadcast series we started last month and undergirds the training work we know will be the craft training for the new-genre woodworker anywhere on the globe. We are about two-thirds through with this workbench series and this third hand support means you will be well equipped to keep up with your fellow woodworkers.

So many of you have emailed thanking us for this How-to-make-an-English-joiner’s-workbench series it’s been hard keeping up with correspondence beyond the important queries and questions people have about the tools or the techniques we use. Please keep the questions coming because your questions often answer questions for many others who don’t or cannot ask because of time constraints or whatever.

Thanks for your support everyone!

      We will, Sergio. This is very much a part of what we do and will hopefully be doing for a long time to come.
      Thank you and all the others who take time to write.

    Paul, first time I write here. I’ve been a long time fan of yours from Brazil. Some day I will find the time to do one of your courses. You mentioned this is one of your most popular series. why? because you build a workbench (essential) with trivial tools. any other video on the internet about workbenches, people use big and expensive power tools. I becomes sort of non sense. Most of the people looking for a workbench don’t have all those tools… This series encourages everyone to get it going, showing its possible! Great series. Looking forward for the remaining videos.
    best,
