This should come in handy next week, keeping an eye on process timing for my new Roubo workbench course trial run ⏱
Building on the success of my other courses I am hoping to launch a three day workbench building course this year.
I am about to begin building a prototype of the course workbench to check that my proposed time scale and costings are realistic.

Last week was a busy one on the teaching front 😅
Beginning the week with Dan who made an ash cutlers stool on Monday (first cutlers stool to be made from ash, definitely won’t be the last!).
Then on Wednesday Oscar came in and made a beech cutlers stool with lovely contrasting walnut wedges.
Finally on Thursday I was joined by Lisa and Luke for a newly introduced ‘Taster for Two’ day!
four happy ‘students’, four fantastic stools, one slightly croaky voice...
Fancy coming on a course? Or giving a course as a gift? (Christmas is coming.... 🎅) follow the link below for further information.
Usually my courses are 1:1 but today I was joined by both Georgie and Richard Manners for a taster day course (delayed by 6 months due to Covid 🤦♂️). They made a beautiful matching pair of oak cutlers stools!
It was great fun to have a couple in together; perhaps I should introduce “Couples Courses”? 🤔
Here’s Doug with the oak cutlers stool he made on Saturday! 😎
It’s great to be back teaching in the workshop again after 5 long months!
Fancy giving woodworking a go?
.....Are now available!
Thinking of gifting a one or two day Woodworking Course course this Christmas?
With an increasing selection of course options on offer our new Gift Vouchers are a great gift idea for many occasions, including Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, retirements and of course Mother’s Day and Father’s Day!
A woodworking course offers more than just a great experience... It offers the opportunity to learn new skills that can be used and enjoyed for years to come, it could also prove to be a gateway to a very fulfilling new hobby!
Gift Vouchers are available from the workshop or can be posted out to you.
Please get in touch for more information!
We have recently completely revamped the tuition and courses part of the website, this has been under development for a while and there’s still more to come later in the year!
The main focus of this update is the creation of five brand new one day courses aimed at new and hobbyist woodworkers. The new courses tackle subjects that I am most frequently asked for advice about, while offering these as one day courses has the added benefit of being easier to fit around my normal workload and for the prospective ‘student’ to fit their diary.
