It was a fun class, learnt a lot, good student to teacher ratio. Unfortunately some of the tools like the straightener were not properly maintained so we couldn't use them and had to work around, not ideal.

Very nice introduction to woodworking and the tools. We learned quite a few general techniques, and the instructor was making an effort to give information that would be useful for more complex project. The only criticism I’d have is that the boards we produced were less stylish than the ones in the image. Specifically, we ripped all our strips to the same width, so we couldn’t produce these nice asymmetric patterns.
