The Rowden Workbench
The workshop New Year has begun with a handful of students making their benches for woodworking.
The Rowden workbench has evolved over the last twenty years to its current design, a perfect workbench for any cabinet maker.
It begins with a huge stack of timber, and is rapidly made into a stunning bench, from the under-frame, to flattening the top by hand or finishing the tail vice.
Each student on the year course will make a workbench, designed perfectly for them before starting on their own pieces. It is always exciting to see the students working on their first substantial piece.
