I am a beginning hand tool woodworker and I recently had the pleasure of attending several courses at Wayne’s school. Each course was well-constructed and provided both the necessary practical detail as well as ample time for skill building exercises. Wayne is a great guy to spend the day woodworking with and is a very effective instructor and great communicator. He has extraordinary knowledge of a broad array of woodworking tools and approaches. His manner in the classroom helps builds student confidence and he has great patience while helping students. I feel that Wayne's school fills an important niche in woodworking instruction as his curriculum helps students build foundational skills needed for simple to complex projects. I would highly recommended Wayne as an instructor for woodworkers who want to focus on hand tool methods or those looking to expand their hand jointery skills within their power tool based shops. I look forward to visiting Wayne’s school again for future courses. Thank you, Wayne.
