In this intensive one-week woodworking course in Marrickville, you will construct a simple low saw bench. During this process, you will be introduced to the basics of working with reclaimed wood and using simple hand tools. This course is great for people with little woodworking experience and those who have no access to a well appointed workshop.

The saw bench itself is designed as a mini workbench that can offer a variety of work holding and tool storage solutions for woodworking projects at home. When not in use it can be used as a regular seat and stored out of the way under a table.

In conjunction with the timber and milling services offered at Among the Trees, this course and the bench produced will give students the skills, confidence and equipment needed to take on reclaimed woodworking projects of their own at home.

This course is held across 4 days:

  • Day 1, 10am-1pm
  • Day 2, 9am-4pm with a lunch break
  • Day 3, 9am-4pm with a lunch break
  • Day 4, 10am-1pm

This listing is for our 1-week intensive course, consisting of four consecutive days. If you are looking to do this course across 6 weeks, please visit this our 6-week course listing.

Among the Trees is an ethical and sustainability based start-up for reclaimed timber located in Marrickville. 
Saving timber from demolitions or other discarded uses and making it available to the public through a retail timber shop and woodworking classes. Accessibility to wood doesn't just mean being wheelchair friendly (which we are), it also means helping customers understand how to use and source reclaimed timber. To make it as easy as possible to work with, we offer custom machining and glueing, so the timber in our store can be squared, resurfaced and cut to specific dimensions. We also help empower individuals to have the confidence to undertake woodworking projects by offering woodworking beginners classes that are taught with simple hand tools. 
 
Lumberyards and wood workshops can be intimidating sometimes, ATT is one of the few places that caters not only to architects, planners, homeowners as well as carpenters and tradespeople but also to customers that have little to no woodworking experience and are embarking on DIY and student projects or trying their hand at repair, renovating or building. 

Our workshop at Among The Trees is set up to be the perfect space to learn about hand tools, reclaimed timber, and woodworking. We’ve been hard at work collecting, restoring and tuning all the tools required to learn woodworking, and a few extra ones as well.
 
All-in-all, everyone that is interested in wood is welcome!
