Bien Hecho Academy

In addition to providing first class carpentry and design services, Bien Hecho Brooklyn is also the proud home of the Bien Hecho Academy.  Spearheaded by John Randall in collaboration with Tim Dowse of Third Ward, the Bien Hecho Academy is a series of grand new woodworking courses that not only offer a solid education in the fundamentals of woodworking, but also provide insight into the complete process of creating fine furniture, from tree all the way to the last coat of finish.

Walnut Slab Workshop

800.00

Jump into our American black walnut slab collection and make your very own live edge bench/coffee table. You will receive one solid piece of black walnut measuring roughly 40" long x 16-18" wide x 1 3/8" thick. Patches and plugs, used to fill voids or cracks, will be added to your liking. This will entail light use of the router, and you will learn about template making. Next you will finish sand your piece, and add steel hairpin legs, which you can choose to blacken (pictured) and wax. Lastly, hand applied finishes will be discussed and demonstrated. You will head home with a small jar of tung oil finish and an amazing piece of furniture. No prior experience needed, all materials included.
