Maker's bio

My love of woodcraft was due to a meeting with a guitarist friend who had made an acoustic guitar. We talked about his guitar for many hours and I thought it would be a challenge for me to have a go! Well that was 6 years ago and now in 2021 I am in a small workshop in Stoke where I build various instruments. The Strumstick instrument build is a great way to get to grips with fine woodworking and is an ideal step towards acoustic guitar building. No experience in woodwork is needed.

Eliza reviewed: Basic woodworking day course

"Booked this course for my boyfriends birthday! He said he had the best day. Ted was personable, patient and informative! They had a really good laugh (even his Dad jokes!). He learnt a lot and will definitely be going back to make some of the instruments. Thank you for a cracking day. Would highly recommend. "

Teds Woodworking/ instrument making Courses responded:

" Thank you Eliza for a super quick review and the booking. Yes Jake was a good learner and a very positive person indeed.... And we did seem to chat rather a lot. Remember Xmas is around the corner so I hope to see you both on another course soon making presents for your family etc. Thanks again Ted. "
