Thanks Ambrose, it was such a fun weekend. This is the first piece of woodwork I have done and I am really chuffed with the result. Your teaching style was great giving enough support without taking over. We’ve both come away with something we’ll keep forever.

Such a good weekend. Thank you very much for all your hard work and organisation. I think the stool is a great design and you worked out all the steps so cleverly. I have been admiring my stool. It is beautiful
