You will then be supported to put it all into practice and de-construct a full-size pallet and then build a project, which you can then take home with you at the end of the day.

This was the perfect short course to get me moving from "I could do that" to "I made that". Starting with the basics of sourcing and dismantling your pallet ( with advice on the best tools for the job) through simple construction methods and different wood finishing techniques , Scott and Sue provided comprehensive, practical advice in a supportive, friendly environment. We even learned how to incorporate lighting into a pallet wood project. Over the two days I learned to use both power and hand tools effectively and to try out my own creative ideas. I also picked up lots of practical woodworking tips. This course opened up a world of potential projects to explore back home and was great fun. Scott, Sue and Max the Labrador (the black paws behind the name!) were great company. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic course!!! If you love upcycling, then I highly recommend this course, it exceeded my expectations. It was very hands on & I learnt so much over 2 days, I did not want to stop & I wished they did a 5 day course. Scott had so much knowledge & both Scott & Sue made it a fun relaxed weekend & provided lots of cake 😀

A fantastic course! Taken by Scott, and Sue his wife and Max 'Black Paw' the black Lab were there too to help. Scott went through how to identify pallets, which you wouldn't think is important but certainly is! We then were taught how to take them apart, how to make a work bench in 5 mins. All the tools used, different types of nails, screws etc. How to use hand tool and power tools. The second day was also interesting, how to wire a plug and lamp, then we turned it into a cool floor lamp and we made a pallet armchair/throne. Scott is very knowledgable, and has great ideas. He explains things well and is patient to everyone's learning speed. Would 100% recommend to everyone!

Scott is a great teacher giving just the right balance of instruction and information whilst letting us get to grips with the tools and tasks. Highly recommend this course and any course Scott runs
