Hi Dave, I wanted to say a massive thank you for a great weekend on the Round Wood construction course!
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the build and all the skills learned can easily be used for other projects. Your teaching methods and explanations are very clear as are the practical demonstrations. I enjoyed the freedom of time given to try out each skill and tool and feel very confident to use them all again.
