As a member you can access our online booking system which allows you to book a bench with access to the tools or machines covered in your induction. Please use the email address you used for booking your induction. You can book up to two weeks in advance. Bench spaces are available Mon-Sat, 9.30 – 17.30.  

We always have a technician on site keeping everyone safe and maintaining machineryIf you need additional technical support we have designated FRIDAY and SATURDAY for this, where the technician will be on hand to give you extra guidance on your project. 

Benches can be booked across two areas:
WOOD WORKSHOP – The main woodworking bench space with easy access to all machinery
METAL WORKSHOP – The main workspace for using metal machinery 

Additional spaces and machinery that can be booked: 

WOOD LATHE – a separate induction is needed, contact us to find out more. 

We have 9 benches available in the woodwork area and 3 in the metalwork area.  If you require specific equipment, particularly in metalwork let us know. Benches do get booked up quickly however, so try to book as far ahead as you can (available up to 2 weeks in advance) – but we recommend at least a couple of days to guarantee a bench.

On your booked day you have 1 hour to claim your bench otherwise you will risk losing your booking. Please notify us if you are running late.
