This 10 week course focuses solely on the safe use and understanding of the following machines:

  • Surfacer
  • Thicknesser/Planer
  • Bandsaw

(Panel Saw, Mitre Saw & Router Table are covering in Machine Making and Safety II which will be running in Summer 2022)

You will be assigned a small project along with working drawings that you will make over the duration of the ten weeks. This project will take you through the relevant steps and safe machine procedures necessary to complete this project.

By introducing a set project using all the mentioned machines in context this will allow you to reinforce and demonstrate your understanding and knowledge of each machine.

On completion of this course you will be required to take a practical and written assessment before you will be allowed to access the machines by yourself in the workshop.

Please note it is necessary for you to have considerable knowledge and woodwork experience in order to enrol on this course (if you have not previously done an evening course with Benchspace then please contact before booking, outlining your previous experience)

As your safety is our highest concern, the course is limited to 6 places
