Build a sled
Dec 2019 • Family
My 9 year old Grandson had a great time and learnt how to use many power tools safely. He produced an impressive sled with guidance/help from David. He loved it and can't wait for it to snow!!

Enjoyable learning experience
May 2018 • Solo
I just completed the basic woodwork course. David is a great tutor, who is patient and approachable, and took his time to cover not only the set programme, but any other concerns and questions I had about the project I hope to tackle. At the end of the day, I felt not only more knowledgable on how to carry out my project, but much more confident. The workshop itself is a delight! Kim

Basic woodwork
May 2018 • Solo
I was tired of depending on my husband everytime I wanted something hung on a wall or having projects in my head and not being able to putting them to practice.
David’s course was exactly what I was looking for! He is extremely didactic so it is very easy to understand what he explains and he never laughed at my stupid questions and crazy ideas!
I had a very enjoyable day and left feeling confident!
For somebody who barely knew the difference between a nail and a screw, I now have my own drill (which David help me buy), I built my own king size bed and a footstool!

Basic Woodwork and DIY course
Feb 2018 • Solo
I cannot recommend these courses enough for anyone lacking in experience or confidence around power tools or DIY tasks. The workshop is large and well equipped, safety is fully respected and David is a great instructor, very knowledgeable, an approachable two way communicator and more than generous with his time and knowledge both on the day and if you have further queries. He will make sure you take home skills and experience based upon your specific requirements, not just those on a predefined course list.
I had an enjoyable, informative day which has led to me investing in a circular saw and router, neither of which I knew how to use previously and I hope to go back for a different course in the future.

DIY and workwork course
Feb 2018 • Solo
I had an excellent day with David in his large workshop (which has everything you could possibly need). He was easy to talk to, a good teacher and very knowledgeable. This was a worthwhile day to help me have greater confidence to carry out various DIY tasks around our home. He made sure that we covered all the key tasks i needed during the day.
