Even at this early stage in my woodworking journey the level of accuracy seemed impossible but with only a day of John's guidance on the tools fractions of millimeter workmanship was being repeatable achieved.

A superb course taught by John who is a excellent teacher and obviously extremely experienced. He made learning the basics of woodworking really fun and enjoyable. I learnt loads and feel so much more confident with the plane, saw and chisel. The supply of delicious cakes and biscuits also helped to keep energy levels up for the entire two days.

The workshop is well laid out with plenty of room around each bench and in the central area. John is always available to ask advice from and has a range of tools that can be used whilst you are on the course, which allows you to gain experience in using a new tool if you have not used that type of tool before.
