Course 2..Wood and things:
This course is aimed at people who ideally will have done course 1 (tools and things) or at least have a good working knowledge of hand tools & hand held power tools. The emphases is more on timber, what are acceptable defects in timber and what isn't, how do you write out a cutting list that means something to your supplier, what to look for when buying wood, design and drawing plans.
The projects for you to pick from are more complicated and the level of accuracy required to successfully complete the projects is greater than course 1.
The same basic tool kit is provided for you whilst you are with me.
As with course 1 there will be a maximum of 4 students on any given course so that I can give the right amount of attention to each student.
The course runs 9 am - 5pm Mon to Thurs, Friday we usually finish between 2 & 3pm.
