Starting May 1, I'll be offering group and private classes in Pepperell, MA covering basic hand tool skills.
To repeat what I've said before, I'm not nearly the level of the other instructors here. However, I can help prepare you for their classes, so you can focus on their advanced instruction, not the basics of getting your hand tools going. Where they are the Olympic coaches, I'm the high school coach to get you started.
If you've been a follower of this forum wishing you had the skills to take the specialized classes listed here, this is for you. I provide everything, you need nothing other than a willingness to try new things, make a few mistakes, and learn.
