We run a small number of Masterclasses in our workshop every year. Our three key courses are our Summer Hand Tools Masterclass, our Production Masterclass and our Design & Development Masterclass. A Private Mentoring Session is available at any time. Join our mailing list to keep up to date with our offerings.
Private Mentoring Session
I’m regularly asked for small bits of advice and I’d never discourage simple questions. Just email me email@example.com.
Some of you have more complex questions and you hold back because you don’t wish to impose. I’ve developed the Private Mentoring Session so you can “ask me anything” without feeling uncomfortable about it. More info here:

Would you like to learn how to safely set-up and use professional standard woodworking machines? Would you like to experience the dynamics of one of the best woodworking teams in Australia?
Our Production Masterclass uses the multi-award-winning Waterfall Stool as a teaching aid. Using four timbers with distinctly different working characteristics (blackwood, jarrah, rock maple and American cherry) you will learn how different species react to the same processes. You will experience the capacity of professional grade machinery and use the actual jigs developed over 20 years of continuous production.
Whether you are a home enthusiast or an aspiring professional, this course will teach you how to get the best performance out of your equipment. You will learn the fundamentals of designing for small-batch production. You will experience the power of teamwork in woodworking. You will gain a better understanding of the importance of hand skills in a production setting.
You will be trained in the safe use of the following machines; spindle moulder, router table, bandsaw, table saw, radial arm saw, oscillating slot mortiser, horizontal linisher, stroke sander, air sanders, surface planner, thicknesser, band-resaw and much more.
The course price includes materials for one Waterfall stool in the timber of your choice. Additional stools are available for $250+GST per stool (total limit of 3 stools per person). A deposit of $850 incl. GST is payable at the time of booking. You will be invoiced for the balance 2 weeks out from the course start date. Due to the ongoing COVID situation, the deposit is fully refundable and the dates might be subject to change at short notice.
This course is suitable for intermediate and advanced woodworkers. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Morning tea and lunch is provided. The class runs 8:30am to 4pm, Monday 31st May to Friday 4th June, 2021. We will be practicing social distancing and complying with NSW COVID Safe rules.
What to wear.
You must wear enclosed stout footwear. Boots are ideal, but steel caps are not mandatory. It could be quite cold during the week, so please dress accordingly.
What to bring;
Please bring your own PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) of dusk mask, hearing protection and eye protection. We can supply you with all these, but you will be most comfortable in equipment that you are familiar with. You will not need to bring any tools.
