Woodwork Skills taught at The Goodlife CentreSuitable for absolute beginners. Enjoyable for everybody.

One-day workshop. 10am – 5pm.

Measure, saw, chisel, plane and create a simple half joint.

Take a plunge into carpentry by learning how to use the tools that create this rather lovely set of ‘Gallows brackets’ and shelf.

During this ‘absolute beginners’ one day workshop, professional cabinet maker Ben Rawlinson will show you how to use a chisel to construct a half lap joint and chamfer an edge. You will be guided through using a wood plane to smooth the shelf and edge plane the front surface.

The day will also show you how to sharpen and care for chisels and planes and by the end of the day will take away new found confidence in two very important parts of your tool kit, and a shelf and brackets to show off to all your friends.

Ben is a bespoke furniture maker and teacher. He has a relaxed and playful way of guiding the absolute beginner as they enjoy a day of tools and wood joints. More about Ben here:

If you enjoy the peace that comes with traditional skills, this day can build into a life long pastime. This workshop always sells out fast.

All personal protection and use of tools and materials are included.
