Thanks for a very instructive weekend! I am looking forward to finishing my box. Thank you so much for the clear instruction – you have opened up a number of techniques I had not previously tried which is great.
Hi Andrew! firstly, thank you very much for a brilliant weekend. I had a really good two days with you and learnt so much — I was still taking it all in when I was flying down the motorway. The other guys were great, and I think their enthusiasm and humour made for an exceptional experience …
I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and am impressed with what I managed to do with your guidance. There is hope for this frustrated perfectionist!
Very interesting site. Keep it up. Poor old Henrietta; do you treat all your women like this!!
Whether us humble amateur woodworkers can ever reach your standards depends on what we may have at our disposal, such as space, kit and determination to ‘go it alone’ without the benefit your guiding hand, but it is nevertheless very satisfying to see such positive results so suddenly.
I’m a total beginner, but now I feel a beginner with the confidence and knowledge necessary (here’s hoping) to be able to eventually produce similarly wonderful boxes at home. Or at least get started
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.
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 …
… you are most definitely a master at your craft
… thank you for your patient explanation of how to construct better boxes and your attention to fine detail. We both came away with a better appreciation of our skill levels and how to improve upon them.
I can definitely confirm that both my wife and i thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend. The course was exactly what I had hoped for, so I am really very very pleased.
Thank you for your hosting a great course last weekend. Very enjoyable.
Really enjoyed the weekend! You are a great teacher and your tips and tricks will be invaluable. I would really love to come back to learn more.
[smartHinge] – I have now successfully installed smartHinges on my first box. As you say they are very easy to instal and the end-result is extremely elegant.
[smartHinge] – awesome hinges, ingenious simplicity. they look great and so easy to fit …
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
Anybody wanting to make very fine quality veneered woodwork should go – its not just for people who want to make the finest boxes.
As a flute player (maker) and metal artist who has done a number of sculptural boxes/containers using woods and precious metals and gems, I truly appreciate your work – your attention to form, function and esthetic in all details is wonderful.
Many thanks again for the wonderful weekend! I learned a lot and had great fun.
… thank you for an extremely enjoyable and informative weekend.
