Have A Seat! It’s generally accepted that when two or more people are seated communally on a bench, everyone becomes an equal. Seated at the same height and even sharing the same support structure provides an even ground for discussion, debate or even silence. The two-person bench that you will build in this class is based on a bench found in the dining hall of the Snow Hill Nunnery, featured in the book We Sit Together by Francis Cape. Vic Tesolin will guide you through the building of this mid-nineteenth century bench using hand tools. You will also be working without numbers or measuring – a technique known as referential building. When you learn to free yourself from numbers, it’s amazing how much easier woodworking can become.
