Great class, we were provided with very nice Japanese carpentry tools. Ged was a damn good teacher, was very easy to follow his directions and he kept track of everyone and offered to help whenever they were struggling. I highly recommend this course also Dufftown where this takes place is a wonderful town with legendary history for the whiskey trail.

Response from Gedwood:

Thanks Michael. Glad you enjoyed the course and hope you found time to sample a Speyside dram or two!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Highly recommend doing the log to tumbler course with Ged. A brilliant day spent in his workshop, surrounded by wood and inspiration. Ged is very knowledgable about his craft and willing to help out with any questions you may have. His clear, patient and adaptive way of teaching will leave you feeling totally comfortable and capable in what you are doing, even if you have no experience (and are slightly scared of an axe)! And you take home a wee creation of your own to boot.

Response from Gedwood:

Thanks for your kind words Robyn. Enjoy your tumblers! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Treated to a fabulous day with Ged at his amazing workshop. He taught us how to use a range of woodworking tools & gave a demonstration before we all started our stools. Ged was around for assistance & reassurance if we needed it. All in all a really great day learning new skills in a lovely environment and we are so happy with our wee stools!

Response from Gedwood:

Glad you enjoyed the course guys ๐Ÿ˜Š

A great course for beginners, or those with a little more green wood working experience. Ged's relaxed teaching style makes it easy to learn, and not worry about making mistakes - he can usually fix them! I'd recommend Ged's courses, and I'll be doing another.

Response from Gedwood:

Hi Yvonne,
Many thanks for your feedback and hope to see you again getting creative in my workshop. Hope you enjoy a dram or two in your whisky tumblers! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thanks Ged- great course. Learnt a lot (including that I need to practice quite a bit!). Would recommend this course anytime. One of the highlights is using the manual lathe.

Response from Gedwood:

Thanks Prem. Glad you enjoyed turning the tumblers on the lathe and enjoy a dram in them soon ๐Ÿ˜Š

I had a great day with Ged in his well equipped outdoor workshop. This is the third course I have done with Ged and it won't be my last. Ged is a friendly and enthusiastic teacher who is very willing to pass on his knowledge of green woodworking. Knew skills are learnt and you walk away with a unique handcrafted piece.

Response from Gedwood:

Hi Les, thanks so much for your kind words. Hope to see you again soon๐Ÿ‘

Despite the rain, the workshop was fantastic, the workshop area was well set out and we had plenty of space to work. All the tools were clean and sharp and the instruction from Ged was good.
There were 4 on the course and the space was fine. The setting for the workshop is great ,the location is easy to get to. with the aid of Geds information he sends out. Look forward to returning for another workshop and to invite Ged to the opening of the gate.

Response from Gedwood:

Thanks for that Peter. Look forward to the gate launch๐Ÿ˜Š

A lovely weekend. I really enjoyed it. It was very nice to learn some of the basics of working with greenwood and to get a completed gate at the end. The workshop space was a really nice environment despite the almost constant rain over the weekend.

Response from Gedwood:

Glad you enjoyed it Eleanor and your all dried out now!๐Ÿ˜Š

Andrew King - - #30970

Had a great day and learnt a lot about how to cut and shape green wood which I had never done before. The instructions are easy to follow and Ged was around to help and guide as needed. A beautiful location to have the workshop too, so a bonus on the surroundings. Will definitely look out for other courses from Ged and will practice the skills I learnt on the day.

Response from Gedwood:

Thanks Andrew. Glad you enjoyed the course and hope to see you again on another course๐Ÿ˜Š

A very enjoyable course. All the basic green woodworking techniques were covered. Well demonstrated with very calm and clear explanations/descriptions. Used a wide range of tools.
Came away with a fine shave horse.
Even better, we had sun all weekend. Ged makes a good cup of tea too.

Response from Gedwood:

Thanks Norman. Hope you make good use of your shavehorse when your drawknife arrives!๐Ÿ˜Š
