Woodwork Class – Ultimate Power Tools


Woodwork Class – Ultimate Power Tools

Use and understand every power tool you are ever likely to see, the ultimate power tool class. Learn how to use power tools safely and properly to create a professional finish and a few more things that aren’t in the book.

If you’ve ever said “I want to be able to use power tools properly” then this is the course for you. If you’re already comfortable with hand tools great, if you’ve never picked up a hand plane in your life it doesn’t matter either way, we go from scratch and if you want those jobs to go faster with less effort; a power tool is the answer.

Watching it on youtube is one thing but testing them all out and learning how to use them properly with an instructor by your side is the ultimate way to learn. In this class students will learn how to set up and use the tools safely and discover which is the best tool for each job, from rough carpentry work to fine cabinet work.

You will also learn different woodworking techniques that can make the difference between the project looking like home DIY verses a professional piece of work that can be handed down for generations. The right tool for the right job isn’t only easier and faster, it gives you a terrific sense of enjoyment, accomplishment, and pride.

As an enthusiastic DIY-er, who also completed an introductory woodworking course (elsewhere), I've been looking at upgrading my collection of power tools in order to complete woodworking projects faster and to a higher standard. While I've had some idea what tools to look for, I wasn't necessarily confident in choosing or using them. In addition, due to a very limited working space, getting the right mix of multitasking and more specialist tools was of the essence for me. Yes, there're numerous guides and tutorials online but for me nothing beats 'try before you buy' approach coupled with a competent advice from a real person and this is why I opted for the Ultimate Power Tools course. David has a fantastic workshop equipped with every imaginable power tool you would need for a woodwork project. At the start of the day, he checked what each of us needed to get out of the course and made sure the agenda was tweaked accordingly. The class that followed was structured but flexible at the same time. David has provided a comprehensive overview of features, set-up and safe operation of each tool we covered, peppered with invaluable tips, all in a very friendly and professional manner. We've had plenty of opportunities to try each tool and ask any related questions. I would highly recommend this course.

So glad I spent the time with David learning about how to use so many power tools, some I'd used before but obviously did not fully understand! Some I'd looked at before and thought that I'd never want to or be able to use but I now have the confidence to do so. And I learnt so many extra tips and tricks of the trade from David. It was a very comprehensive, information packed day which was also very understandable, allowing me to put the use of the tools into perspective. It was well paced allowing me to absorb the information but allowing me unhurried time to practice using the tools. David has a good teaching style and I never felt rushed or hurried. David stuck with us until our objectives had been achieved. I highly recommend this day and would be really happy to work with David again.

"I bought the powertools course as a present for my husband who is a keen amateur woodworker. He thoroughly enjoyed the day and spoke very highly of the tutor. He said he came away with good ideas and a greater understanding of the tools he owns. Based on his reaction, I would highly recommend this course."
