Many thanks for a very enjoyable weekend. Having been self taught, I now realize how much more there is to learn from those like yourself and the others on the course. Thanks again for passing on all that knowledge and expertis

I enjoyed it on so many different levels; the exposure to new techniques and the discipline of minute attention to detail; your company and that of David and Mike and the clear common perspective on things beyond wood working;

 … your case was a hit at the festival in Nova Scotia. Everyone from Chris Norman and Matthias Maute to Rachel Brown and Pat Olwell himself admired it a great deal.

David M, USA

Thanks, Andrew – it was a very interesting group with great banter and I don’t think we minded about the bit of work to do back home. The snow certainly added to the fun, and the delays, but it helped to make a very memorable and worthwhile five days

Dave W, UK

Just a quick note to say thanks for your time and patience and for a great weekend. I am really pleased with the quality of box we managed to produce I such a short time.

  I wanted to say thanks for a fantastic weekend – It has really inspired me to get stuck in again – and taught me so much – I’ve built many of the jigs and aids we used and a veneer press of sorts …

… thank you for a great weekend, maybe at some point in the future I can return for the 5day box making class!

Kristin C, UK

 … thank you for such a brilliant weekend. We loved it! I am very pleased to attach some photos of our beauuuutiful boxes, fully lined and in all their glory! I hope you approve.

Andrew, loved your work at the Claremont Wood Show. Having previously disliked both boxes and veneering, I am now a convert

I’d love to come back next year to build a veneered box with a curved lid. Thanks again, Andrew, the days in your workshop were really helpful and it was a great pleasure to spend time with you.
