About this event

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 and 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 course 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 or 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.
