Want to review this course?

What a superb course! Scott aimed the course at the level appropriate for the participants and supported us through the main processes of sourcing, dismantling, assembling and finishing a product. He was able to provide vital tips in all areas while answering any questions we had with ease. I feel confident now to begin creating any item of furniture from old pallets! Scott was a delight, engaging and supportive throughout. Thanks for everything.
