Reviews on this class:
“Learned a LOT about the table saw, lots of practice and safety instructions which was what I was really taking the class for. Chris was a really good and patient instructor and helped us learn by thinking not just doing.”
“Loved the hands-on guidance using the wood tools, that really helps my confidence level. Also, I wouldn't have known how to approach a cutting board like this, so that was great.”
