Andrew was a fantastic teacher, with a genuine passion and incredible advice. As someone who far from an expert, he was patient and provided excellent guidance.
The timber provided was an absolutely beautiful species, with such captivating grains and growths. Quality was not skimped on.
The techniques and processes taught were very unique and adventurous. The use of hand tools really created a powerful bond between maker and timber; which to me, is what woodworking is about.
