 … thanks once again for a great weekend. Learned a lot even if I can’t put all of into practice yet. Have done three coats of Danish + two of wax – looking really good!

[smartLock] – the quality of the lock and key is amazing – just what I was looking for!! … for all my future projects I will only use your hardware as it is so superior to anything else out there in the marketplace.

Hi Andrew – enjoyed course and proud of my box!

Robert C, UK

Had an excellent time on the course (scouts and Louis XIV furniture not withstanding) and have had a chance to go through the photos and have enclosed some nice ones of you and the gang! When I came back from the course I felt full of confidence about all things wood …

Denise B, UK

Thank you for an excellent weekend, much learned in good company. Accommodation at Wood Acton is to be recommended as are your local pubs.

Peter S, UK

I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend. It gave me excellent insights into the equipment and processes needed to make fine boxes… I feel I have gained some basic skills now but I will have to put in a lot of practice to improve them! You may see me back in the future some time for additional tuition!

Derek E, UK

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 expertise

Chris R, UK

Many thanks again for last weekend.  I greatly enjoyed your course & very much appreciated your professional approach to box making & your attention to detail.

For professionals in a hurry, or home woodworkers frustrated by ill-fitting lids, smartHinge is a revelation, a real Eureka moment … worth the cost for a quality result. They will transform your boxes and boxmaking.

Nick Gibbs, British Woodworking Magazine, UK

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.

Lyndon S, Australia

I seen your work and I think it was beautiful, as I’m a shopfitting bench joiner you rarely see such beautiful work as yours. I have a keen interest in marquetry and inlay and after seeing your work it has give me the push to get back into fine work again.
