Peter Austin reviewed: Cleft ash gate making with Gedwood

"This was my second course with Ged, the first being a fortnight earlier making a shave horse. On both occasions it was a great pleasure to learn and work with his traditional tools, which he had obviously spent many hours sharpening and honing. The ash shavings virtually fell away from the work piece. I thoroughly recommend anyone even vaguely interested to take advantage of one of Ged’s courses, you won’t regret it! He takes a stall at various outdoor events and will be happy to elaborate. "

Gedwood responded:

" Thanks very much Peter. Glad you enjoyed the gate making course, and happy shaving on the shavehorse!"

"What a great way to spend a day! Although I've had plenty of woodworking experience, creating a pair of tumblers from a green log was a whole new thing for me.

Thank you Ged."
