When Building furniture, you need your workbench to be able to hold your boards to accurately work the faces, edges and ends. Chirs Schwarz has built and used ten different types of workbenches and has experimented with many work holding challenges and solutions. In this DVD he demonstrates various strategies for holding the workpiece for these essential tasks, by designing or modifying a workbench for efficient use.
Christopher Schwarz is the former editor of "Popular Woodworking" magazine and a furniture-making enthusiast. He built his own workbench at age 8 and helped his father build two houses on their family farm using almost exclusively hand tools.
