[smartHinge] – I just received these hinges and found them to be the easiest hinges to install that I have ever used.
Thank you so much for all your kindness, patience and guidance over the weekend. It was quite the best workshop I have attended.
Thanks so much for the course, it was so good!
… you are an excellent and very patient teacher. Really. Thank you!
Many thanks for the weekend, full of instruction, hints, tips and the chance to improve on my woodworking skills. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and would happily go on to do the full 5 day course …
Thank you for a very stimulating weekend which I thoroughly enjoyed, so much so I’m already planning my own box.
[smartHinge] – thank you for the really top quality smartHinges; beautifully made and excellent and helpful instructions.
Thanks Andrew I enjoyed the course tremendously now, hopefully soon, I will start to put into practice all the information you provided. I’m still getting my workshop ready but the end is insight. I look forward to your next newsletter.
I recently met Andrew Crawford, a maker of the most beautiful boxes and cases imaginable. I had Andrew make a case for a wooden flute with a one-piece body and footjoint. It is so gorgeous that I have to tell everyone about it.
[smartHinge] – Just wanted to let you know I installed your hinges last week on a jewelry box made of padauk and ebony and they are just fantastic.
your work is very impressive.keep the fire burning .i’m only 16 and i’m doing my technology coursework on jewellery boxes and yours is the 2nd best i’ve seen .good work
Very interesting site. Keep it up. Poor old Henrietta; do you treat all your women like this!!
I have learned much about precision woodworking: setting up machines accurately, attention to detail, getting up close with good light and magnifiers, not accepting near enough is good enough, careful use of abrasives to avoid spoiling detail, finishing carefully – and a lot of patience!
[smartHinge] – it really is a brilliant system
… thank you for the time spent with you last week. I found the entire day most profitable and educational. Thanks again for a super day.
I just wanted to let you know that your handmade wooden boxes are among the finest looking I have seen yet. You are indeed a craftsman.
I wanted to thank you for what was an excellent weekend. I was so enthused by the first introduction to box making that it has left me wanting more. I’m sure that I am not alone in being enthused by your passion for box making …
This is a very nice website Andrew Crawford. I especially liked your “Treasure Island Jewellery Casket” Did you spell that yourself?
I was very proud of what I achieved with your expert guidance. The small group size was perfect. Being a less experienced woodworker, I learned so much and I’ll definitely be looking at using power tools!
I was impressed with your set-up and I very much enjoyed the 2 days. It was amazing how you coped with one absolute novice and another who seemed to have quite extensive knowledge and technical ability. Many, many thanks.
