I had a really lovely day and learnt so much. It was a friendly, informal day, lots of advice and information. Bonus was the excellent cake baked by Sue. Definitely recommend this to anyone whether they have no knowledge of woodwork or want to improve their woodworking skills.
Thank you Scott and Sue for a really great day

What a truly fabulous course you run Scott Sue and Max (black paw himself). I learnt so much and was amazed by how much we achieved in a weekend. Now inspired to create so much more! Photos to follow I’m sure

Such a fantastic course. I went with my son. Scott is a truly great teacher, explaining everything really clearly, really succinctly and then gives you the freedom and confidence to just get on with it and experiment.
Undoubtedly 5 stars from both me and my teenage son who loved every minute of it.

A fantastic course - for someone aware of the basics but lacking confidence in DIY skills, Scott and Sue have created a very accessible, useful, and most importantly fun course! Plenty of great tips, not just on upcycling, but DIY and woodwork in general, the chance to be creative, and you end up with some unique (and practical!) items to take home. Scott is a really great teacher, and they're both lovely people - thanks both!

Hi Scot
A great weekend of craft work and recycling of pallets. It was fun, informative and a truly a practical approach as to how one can create useful items and furniture from redundant pallets. Your excellent instruction will be put to use very soon to create some 'master pieces ' well at least some useful items of interest. Thanks to you and Sue- a wonderful time was enjoyed.
Best regards
Richard

Scott and Sue (and my new best friend, Max) were friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable. The opportunity to try out a huge number of tools was invaluable; I learned what I liked and disliked. The same goes for different finishes, oils, dyes and so on. Highly recommended!

Also, Glastonbury is well worth a visit, especially if you are vegetarian or vegan.

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.

The course was well put together.
With my partner, we are considering buying our first house, and the course covered loads of really relevant information and skills we will need in our new home. From how to wire a light to drilling brickwork and installing water pipes.
Scott is a great teacher and gave us loads of time and support to master the different skills during the day

A great day with loads of skills and building tips
