Not everyone is one of our free subscribers to woodworkingmasterclasses so you might not know the woodworkingmasterclasses crew has put together an amazing video series on building my very unique plywood workbench that everyone is currently enjoying.

You can subscribe to woodworkingmasterclasses for free and watch both Episodes I & 2, which are both currently available to our subscribers or, if you prefer watch on YouTube, you can watch Episode I now if you click here.

The response to this newest of methods for a workbench build as been really phenomenal and my article blog explains fully why I did it here. It’s my effort as a form of bridge-building for machine-only woodworkers to close what has been an ever increasing gap between machine and hand tool methods of woodworking. Those I know who have taken our methodology on board have enhanced their woodworking a hundredfold so if you don’t have a decent workbench why not watch this and start yours?

    I am not sure why anyone would not sign up for the free subscription. There are so many wonderful videos and a wonderful forum (with very helpful and polite people).

    Thanks for this series and all the work you and your team does. The work they do is top notch and you should be very proud.

    I haven’t done woodworking in 20 years. I’m now old and not great physical shape, but your videos and blogs have inspired me to start woodworking again. Thank you.

    I was very impressed with the project that included original woodworking skills with modern power tools. Quality and speed. Some time I need speed, however, most of the time high quality is needed which takes more time. I retired and I prefer to work at a pace that will let me appreciate the journey. Thank you Mr. Sellers for showing how to really enjoy this journey. Bless you and much success.
