There’s endless information out there which can be overwhelming for a beginner — […] you can spend all your time researching instead of getting on with it. I definitely found it helpful to settle on one or two sources of information about tools and techniques and follow their recommendations to get started.

Sharing transparently every detail of every project I've ever created.

Hand tools don't start at the workbench. They start with the breakfast you had this morning and the amount of sleep you had last night. They start with a fire under your arse so you'll get into your workshop and start making shavings of your own.

No matter if you are just getting started or are a seasoned woodworking veteran, this membership will motivate you to grab hold of a hand plane and put in the work.

Fresh detailed Videos every week

I work long days and late nights because I genuine love my craft and the ability to share it with you. Any creative mind will appreciate watching the process, from literal pencil and paper, to patterns and templates, to wood selection and preparation, on and into the joinery and checking, the sweating and re-checking – Every step of the way.

Inspires you to take action

Stop day-dreaming about woodworking and instead put in the work. With detailed step-by-step instructions and downloadable PDFs you will never scratch your head about where to get started. And if you do ever have a question I will be right there to answer it.

Stream anytime, anywhere, at your own pace

Pause videos when you need to take a break, play them within your workshop or watch them over and over again while you are doing your own projects. Having all techniques and tricks at your fingertips is the best way to honor your craft and will give you the confidence to practice yourself.

See all these techniques, again and again, it’s such a nice way to learn and get more confidence to practice as much as possible.

your Teacher
Designing, building & teaching custom furniture made by hand for over two decades.

“This East coaster is certainly humble about his extensive resume; he's written two popular books about traditional woodworking using hand tools, and is commissioned internationally - from Australia to Germany - to teach his craft.”

My website has reached hundreds of thousands of visitors worldwide, my videos have been watched by millions and I had the pleasure to teach thousands of dedicated students in person, through my books and online.

Yet there is still nothing I enjoy more than simply building something and sharing every detail transparently with you.

We are not just an online woodworking school. What truly sets us apart is that you will benefit from our extensive experience in teaching in-person classes for more than a decade and to thousands of happy students all over the world.
