The Details – Getting Started
Often it can be very daunting starting something completely new. Our introductory course has been designed for those with little or no experience in woodworking. They are designed to give you the confidence and an understanding of the tolerances used to create fine furniture.
Emphasis is placed on mastering basic hand techniques and working with various timber species. By the end of the introduction course you will have made a beautifully unique chopping board, and be competent in tuning and using a hand plane, gluing, sharpening, sanding and finishing.
