Once again, I had the pleasure of Ged's company and his relaxed, insightful tutelage. And I ended up with a shavehorse that I'm proud of! Thanks again Ged, hope to see you again in 2022 :)"

Robert Forrest reviewed: Log to tumbler with Gedwood

"It was great turning a log into several tumblers (pun intended!) and Ged guided us on our journey of discovery brilliantly. There were points in the process where I thought I'd blown it but he calmly and with great skill showed me how to get back on track. The tumblers look great and I'll definitely be back for more."

Jeff Buttress reviewed: Make your own shavehorse with Gedwood

"My second course with Ged....First was an Introduction to Pole Lathe turning where I made 4 whisky tumblers and this latest course where I made a shave horse. Excellent course, great tuition, good company and a lovely shave horse to bring home at the end of it. A nice relaxing weekend and I learnt a lot. I think I will need to make an ash gate or maybe more experience on the pole lathe next time. I will be back."

Elisabeth Legg reviewed: Log to Stool with Gedwood

"A great fun course. Amazingly satisfying taking a few pieces from mother nature, and with only a few hand tools, ending up with a lovely little three legged stool. Amazingly patient tutor, juggling us all at different stages throughout the day. And astonishing how we all ended up something that was totally different to the others. Heartily recommend this for a fab day out, with the advantage of having something useful to take home too."

Gedwood responded:

" Thanks so much Elisabeth. hope to see you again on another course. Enjoy your tumblers!"
