Student Stories

I have had the pleasure of a long career in teaching woodworking skills. Some of my students are hobbyists, others get bitten by the bug and decide that a career in woodworking is the life for them. Check out some of the sites below to see what happened after they left me.

Richard Hardy - studied with me on a short course at London Metropolitan before taking himself off to Williams and Cleal to study furniture making full time.
