Bandsaw box making day



The Bandsaw box making day is about 5.00 hours and suitable for anyone over 18 to senior citizens.
The main tools for the day are the bandsaw and belt sander also the oscillating sander.
After using one of the several templates to draw the outline we then cut the various parts of the box. Once the box is glued we can use the sanders to smooth the work then we are ready for the Danish oil finish or shellac. When its oiled you can take your project home to show your family and friends.

Great Course and very fulfilling day - Thanks, Ted!
Highly recommended... Ted was a good, easy-going (and very patient) tutor and was very happy to answer my questions, even beyond the box making course.
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and will definitely be going back for another course.

Thanks, Ted (looking forward to the next)

A very enjoyable day even for someone -- perhaps especially for someone -- who had not done any woodwork since schooldays.
Tim was very good company and a good tutor -- ready to help but not intrusive.
I shall be going back to make another item.

In-person course
Paul Foster - - #33082

A excellent one-on-one 1-day course, at the end of which (much to my surprise) I created a box of far better quality than I thought myself capable of. Tom is a very knowledgeable and convivial host, for which nothing was too much trouble.
I left with a useful insight into some of the tools (bandsaw and sanders) and techniques I am interested in pursuing at home.
Highly recommended.

Response from Teds Woodworking/ instrument making Courses:

Well done to a fine craftsman. I think Paul had great hand skills at the outset and his control of the bandsaw was second to none! With very little help from me Paul has created a little box to last him into old age.
Please come again on another course Paul, you know your welcome indeed?

Kind regards Ted

Response from Teds Woodworking/ instrument making Courses:

David was a typical hands on no fuss sort of guy and the results of his effort certainly paid off.
After a few practice runs on the bandsaw he was soon going for the real thing. I hope he get to use his box as much as I use mine ! I'm looking forward to David coming back on another course soon too.
Well done mate the inner craftsman was with you all day!
see you soon!
