Thank you, I really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot that will start me on my way to a happy and productive retirement.

Thank you for … a great weekend. I certainly learnt new skills …

A brief note to thank you for a brilliant weekend. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but I came away having learned a great deal and I was particularly impressed with your attention to detail which is at the heart of excellent box making. I wish I had come to see you years ago!

Ian B, UK

One complaint; Andy grinds and makes really excellent coffee but I told him he really ought to do it on the hour, every hour! Seriously, a true craftsman very generous with time, knowledge and help.

Thomas and I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Thomas is already halfway through his first solo box and doing a really good job. He says his first box is so much better than mine!

Paul H, UK

I had a superb time last last weekend and ended up with a great box to show for it!  Thanks for being such a great bunch of chaps and makingit all the more enjoyable for being so.

Richard G, UK

We just wanted to say what a lovely time we had across with you.

Karen & Paul B, UK

Andrew – I just wanted to extend my thanks for an excellent day. I thoroughly enjoyed it and walked away considerably more knowledgeable and very enthused.

Mark S, Kent, UK

Andrew, firstly thank you very much indeed for running your wonderful course over last weekend and for your patience, tolerance and perseverance in watching over this particularly inept pupil, particularly whilst working his way through your stock of inlay strips.

Peter A, Wiltshire, UK

thank you so much for the beautiful case! … Nicola is delighted with it, and her flute has already taken up residence. It’s a really lovely piece of work.

Tom B, UK

Thanks for having me in your workshop for five days, Andrew. I enjoyed it immensely … I came away from the week with some valuable learnings – especially the ‘why’s’ of some of your ways of tackling tasks, your jig-based approach to simplifying and speeding up processes and your thoughts on keeping this particular type of box simple in design.
