Absolutely awesome. I had not hand planed before, but this was no issue. Rikki was really knowledgeable, and a great was instructor. The set up was great and even with limited woodwork skill I created an awesome plane. I'm so looking forward to using it

The class was awesome, Rikki was a great teacher and everything was provided. I would definitely recommend this class to my friends. The best part is you get to Hit the surf afterwards and trial your hand plane. Thanks Rikki.
