"There are many good points about this course. The instructor is helpful and clear about the process of making the bar stool. The equipment is amazing and I learnt a lot about a range of tools - drop saws, planer, spacer, clamps, squares etc. The project is also not expensive and although we had to buy wood, glue and screws etc it didn't break the bank! I will come back for more now that I know I can handle wood" Fiona - March 2015
