You are more than welcome to come here and have a look at the different woods that we have in stock (you don't have to buy anything!).  I can also show you around the workshop and discuss some of the tools, what they do, and so on.   Please ring me beforehand (059 9161784) to arrange a suitable date & time.

If anyone else reading this feels that it would be useful if we ran a course on woods, woodworking, tools & equipment, etc., please could you leave a mesage on this forum.   If there is enough interest, we will gladly run a course.

I would be really intrested in doing a course in any way shape or form related to Carpentry but it is extremly difficult as I have a 9 - 5 job and courses are few and far between. I would even be intrest in getting work experience from a furniture maker if someone was only kind enough to show me a few things.

By the way love the site and have to come vist some day and pick up some material.
