The first two benches in the new teaching area in my basement.
I'm pleased to announce that I'm now offering private hand tool woodworking classes in my basement workshop in Ayer, MA.
For full details, see my Hand Tool Instruction page. Other than scheduled classes at specific venues, this will be my preferred way of delivering instruction.
While it was fun running the Close Grain School of Woodworking at a friend's barn in Pepperell, this has better logistics. Classes will be available year-round, with the full range of my workshop available.
Private classes mean that you pick the schedule and topic. You can follow my standard curriculum, or you can focus on specific items, taking as much or as little time as you want. You can make it skills-based or project-based.
I've expanded my workspace to include a teaching area to accommodate the workbenches and tools I had at the barn. This offers space for up to 4 people to work, so if you'd like to bring someone along at a discounted rate for a small private group class, you can do that.
The other two benches.
Yet another reboot of my tool cart, now with enough tools for 4 people.
The hanging bookshelf well-stocked with books and videos.
