Instructor Glenn was great - patient and extremely knowledgeable. Explained everything as we went along, and answered all questions. Showed me how to do each step, let me try (mistakes and all) and gently suggested corrections and improvements.

It was what I needed. I learned everything I knew from the internet and this class helped me to unlearn some bad habits. It is for beginners, but it’s also for people like me who have tried it before and need some support and have a lot of questions. Great instructor who was patient and helpful.

Great class for beginners, would absolutely recommend! Walking away with a beautiful product makes it that much better. I never thought I could handle power saws, but left empowered.

Very cool class but felt a bit more instruction would have been nice. We left with a wine rack that doesn't fit our glasses properly (we did not cut enough space for the stems) which could have been avoided with proper instructions and guidance on dimensions.

Glen was very knowledgeable and personable. The class exceeded my expectations with all the tools that we got to use and the support that we got from Glen in the process.

The class was wonderful and challenging. Glen is a supremely wise and generous teacher whose wisdom extends far beyond woodworking and nourishes your desire to live a fuller and more engaged life.

I ended up switching into the dovetail class instead of taking the tool sharpening class, but Glen was more than happy to teach tool sharpening skills to another student and me before the dovetail class started. This was my second class taught by Glen (the first was a utensil shaping class), and I hope to take more. He has a lot to teach, and he's eager to share as much of his knowledge and skillset as he can. He's quite a talented artist as well as teacher, and taking his classes is both enjoyable and informative. He mentioned preferring teaching without grades, but I give him an A+ without a second thought.

The class was excellent. Glen is a very helpful teacher. He's passionate about his work and eager to share any knowledge he can, even when answering detailed questions involving skills outside of the specific course. Through his utensil shaping class, I leaned and practiced skills that are widely applicable to various wood working projects. I plan to take his tool sharpening class as well to further expand my woodworking skill set. I highly recommend taking any class of his.
