Want to review this course?

I attended the timber hewing course run by steve and could honestly say that it was one of the best courses I have been on. Steve is very knowledgeable on the subject of timber hewing and makes the day really enjoyable. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is interested in traditional woodworking. Thanks again for a great experience.
