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.
I was so thrilled with the outcome of the box and people I have shown this to have been very impressed. Thank you for a very valuable learning experience.
Hi Andrew – Just stopped by to see what’s on the menu today. WOW boxes, COOL BOXES!!! I know when I want a box that’s like no other I’ll look you up!!! I’m impressed!! Oh yea site looks great too!!! Keep up the great work Andrew, catch up with you later.
I want to create something that is functional but pleasing to the eye….Your site, and your obvious passion and expertise, has inspired me to make an item that is something other than a rectangle with a lid….thankyou
We thoughrougly enjoyed the weekend, we certainly learned a lot, including what a fine pint shropshire lass is! As I mentioned I will, hopefully be coming back for more later in the year.
Thank you for an excellent weekend, I learnt an enormous amount and had a great time. Now Im off to the workshop too see how much I can remember…
I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and found it to be everything that I had hoped for, and more …
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.
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 …
I purchased a pair of Smart hinges and everything promised was true; the set up was simple and they really did fit first time, they are a pleasure to use.
Thank you for a really interesting and very helpful course. I have taken away many ideas and tips/tricks.
For the aspiring cellist to spend three days with Yo-Yo Ma would be something special, certainly. For an aspiring box maker to spend three days one-on-one with Andrew Crawford is similar. Earlier this month, I had the pleasure to visit Andrew’s shop in Shropshire, and had such a great experience others might like to hear about it.
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the weekend – marvellous company and particularly good ‘tutoring’ with the just the right mix of information giving and experiential learning. And most importantly- Jane loves the box! Thanks again and I’ll be in touch for the week long session
Thanks again for all your help last week. I really learned a lot. It’s great to view the craft from another maker’s perspective.
We really enjoyed ourselves and learned so much – thank you for being so patient! Thank you too for all this follow up information – very helpful. I keep thinking about all those cuff links………madness! Hope to see you again soon.
The level of detail Andrew achieves is astonishing and his design work is second to none. Just look at the ‘coastal’ box (on the cover of his Celebrating Boxes book) and tell me you don’t want one! Congratulations on your site and your workmanship.
Congratulations. Speaking as a fellow professional woodworker, I am glad to know there are craftspeople like you who succeed not only in representing themselves so beautifully, but also in representing our profession with such grace and understatement. Thanks.
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.
Thanks again for a brilliant 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.
