This workshop is perfect for anyone with little or no previous woodworking experience. Brett is a great teacher with lots of knowledge. I'm very happy with my little table.

Suhail Ullal Jun 2022

Great class for someone looking to introduce themselves to woodworking. We were taught various techniques through building an actual coffee table. Learnt how to mill wood; create panels; glue; sand; joint with dominos; use the table saw, planer, jointer, drum sander; and finish.

Brett is a fantastic teacher to learn from, the class size was small and the teaching environment & equipment were ace.

Michael Payne May 2022

This course is ideal for anyone who would like to learn the basics of woodworking by making a project such as a small coffee or occasional table, or bookshelf.

After making a sketch of their project, the course teaches how to use power tools, sanding, glueing and oiling to produce their project

Lots of fun, maybe a bit pricey but worth it for the experience and skills!

The teachers are very experienced in woodworking and provide excellent training and knowledge. I am new to woodworking and have gained both knowledge and confidence over time and I always look forward to the next lesson. I have learnt to use lots of fun woodworking equipment that I can utilize for home use. This is a great class.
