Woodworking Bench Reference

When something works well, you build on it—like the way this illustrated bench reference builds on Shopware’s popular Woodworking Poster Set. Filled with extra facts, helpful hints, and  guides and scaled  down to 8.5” x 11” for individual use at the workbench, the Woodworking Bench Reference will help students “get it right the first time.”

All pages of the Woodworking Bench Reference have a dry-erase finish, so you and your students can  write on them. Using a dry-erase marker, jot specs and project-specific directions in the space marked Project Notes—or anyplace else that’s helpful. Just wipe them clean when you’re done and use them again and again.

Also, each bench reference is bound by a simple binder ring, to keep individual pages from getting lost and to give you something convenient to hang them by. Hook individual sets to the corner of each workbench, or store multiple sets on a pegboard.

Help your students gain the confidence that comes with working on their own. Provide each one of them with the Woodworking Bench  Reference so that technique tips and safety reminders are always within reach.
