Autumn Classes Available

I wanted to post a quick note about classes this Autumn season.
I offer 3 hour private classes here in  my work shop and topics can range from a basic hand tool introduction to more advanced  sharpening skills and onto hand planing and sawing.
You never need to bring anything with you but I usually encourage students to take along their favourite hand plane or saw.  I think it makes more sense to go through a class using the tools you’ll be using once you leave my shop and get back into yours.
If you have a hand plane that needs tuning up then perhaps a session dedicated to setting up, sharpening and using the tool would benefit?
The beauty of private classes is I can arrange  the times and topics to suit your specific requirements. That in turn allows students to get the most information in the allotted time or an easier way to say it is more ‘bang for your buck’.
Classes are offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and start at 10AM.
If you have any special requests, needs or would just like to talk about a certain aspect of the craft then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

I still have openings but the month of October is filling in very quickly so don’t delay.
