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.

Fantastic course. Fun, well taught, and a great sense of achievement as I came away with a fantastic looking fire pit! Can't recommend this course enough - I absolutely loved it

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 😀
