Mini Epoxy resin Bench Making Course



During this class we are going to teach you how to combine woodworking and epoxy resin pouring to create an eye catching mini bench. This course will take 2 consecutive weeks and you will leave with a bench you have designed and built yourself.

Through the making process we will cover:
- Mould making
- Mixing epoxy
- Pouring epoxy
- Mould release
- Gluing up
- Mortise and tenon making
- Flattening/ sanding
- Finishing/ oiling

The course will also cover the use of the following power tools and fixed machines:
- Router table
- Hand held router
- Oscillating multi tool
- Tenon cutter
- Power drill
- Hand sander
- Speed sander

By covering all of these aspects and tools in depth you will leave the class with a deeper understanding of both woodworking and the epoxy resin process, all with a new bench in tow!

An apron, tools and materials will all be provided, but we do recommend you wear old clothes.
