Maker's bio

Over the 35 years I have been running a successful bespoke furniture making and antique restoration business, I have become passionate about passing on the skills and knowledge through my Woodworking School. We have designed a range of educational long and short courses that have traditional hand skills at their core, the key requirement being simply enthusiasm and a thirst for knowledge.

James Berge reviewed: Furniture Making - Cabinetmaking Fundamentals in East Sussex

"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."

Toby Hague reviewed: Furniture Making - Cabinetmaking Fundamentals in East Sussex

"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."

"Very informative. I learned a great deal about the basics of woodworking, discovered the soothing process of planing wood and successfully made a chopping board."
