This is an amazing course. I learnt many skills and brought home an exquisite object. Thanks to Jake’s patience with teaching, guidance and attention to detail, I was able to make a professional-looking box despite being an absolute beginner with this craft. Being taught by an expert maker of fine furniture was very inspiring.
