The boxes that you craft are amazing. I wish someone like you lived close to me and would teach me. Your work is inspirational to a young woodworker like me. Thanks
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.
… I am extremely pleased with the result from your course. The rather subtle patterns in the veneer didn’t really come to light until I applied the Danish oil and then they glowed.
My notebook, and head, are crammed full of techniques and ideas that should keep me going for quite a while … thank you for really inspiring me to have serious go at box making …
Thank you so much for all your kindness, patience and guidance over the weekend. It was quite the best workshop I have attended.
… I want to tell you that you helped me in ways that only you could have. My mind has been buzzing since I left your shop …
Thank you, I really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot that will start me on my way to a happy and productive retirement.
Many thanks for a wonderful weekend of tuition. Marion and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously. It really is good to focus on something completely different and forget the trials and tribulations of our routine work!
Thanks again for the first class learning experience, you have opened up a whole world of precision work to me.
I want to thank you again for the good teaching and the practical information. I almost learned more in those two days than I did here in Belgium in a whole year.
I am astonished at the craftsmanship and quality in your work
I really enjoyed last week and think I learned a lot. Shropshire was a revelation I must investigate further. Many thanks again for making it such a positive course.
Personally, I learned an awful lot from the detailed information and guidance you provided. It was so much better that reading and video “learning” processes.
I enjoyed your company and that of the other students and considered the weekend very good value. Thank you
[smartHinge] – The hinges arrived safely and have been installed. So easy to work with and look really great – they add a new dimension to a box. Will send another order in due course. Congratulations.
… 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 …
What I gained the most was to try and achieve the highest quality workmanship, not to settle for second best. Also very informative to see all the jigs and little workshop tips and tricks.
I came across your site by chance, while doing a search for boxes. I am so glad I took the detour … if I hadn’t I would have missed the most beautiful wood creations I’ve seen that are made in this century. I love 17th and 18th century furniture, with beautiful inlays and curves. Your work is breathtaking art and skill at it’s finest.
Thank you for your hosting a great course last weekend. Very enjoyable.
You are an excellent teacher who knows his subject and knows how to pass that information on to your students.
