Are you trying out an Among The Trees woodworking course and need a space to work on your project? We created this self-guided class to help make workbench space accessible and available to people who may not have the space at home, or who don’t want the hassle of setting up a woodworking space at home.

Bench rental is only available to previous students of the following Among The Trees courses:

  • Beginner Woodwork: Saw Bench
  • Beginner Woodwork: Picture framing

For your first session, you must book in with the 'First session induction' option. All future sessions are at the regular day rate.

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!

Great opportunity to use the skills learned in previous courses at Among the Trees to build my own project. Should also mention I sourced great timber from ATT for my project.
After an induction, some very useful points to refresh my memory and some helpful advice from Luke I was able to go it alone. Very satisfying.
Highly recommended.

Hanging undertaken an introductory one-day course in picture framing ( that had an excellent instructor) and an induction course into how to use the workshop I commenced my series of making picture frames.
The workspace, tools and materials plus the ambiance are all of the highest standards. The staff are encouraging and willing to share their knowledge that corrected my errors and offered advice on new techniques.
If any one is a beginning to icture framing this is definitely the venue to learn more.
