What’s Happening At John Lloyd Fine Furniture?
Crisp sharp mornings followed by welcome warm sunshine enabling our new batch of enthusiastic students to take their well earned tea breaks outside for a while longer.
Why not join one of our Wood Machining courses next year to learn safely how useful and versatile these amazing machines are. This course is an introduction to using the machinery that might be found in a small to medium sized woodworking workshop and is suitable for those who have their own machinery or are considering purchasing. General Health & Safety issues will be covered, followed by setting-up, maintenance and use of the machines, with individual tuition on each machine. The course will also cover the use of some smaller power tools and a combination of the machines will be used to make a small cabinet. Throughout this course our overriding concern will be safety. Some previous cabinet making skills would be useful for this course, but are not essential.
Read what our recent students say about the Wood Machining Course
“I got exactly what I wanted – advice on what to look for in machine tools, which tools are more useful than others, as well as lots of tips and tricks.”
“John is incredibly knowledgeable, but also made it easy to understand – plus he came across a decent guy. Cakes, biscuits and sense that this was a family venture without super-tight time keeping made this very enjoyable and refreshingly uncorporate. I picked up lots of tips and found it easy to ask questions. I also discovered that what I want is a good bandsaw rather than a good table saw and that in itself will have saved me the course fee!”
“Well structured and comprehensively covered the subjects.Time well used with sensitive feel for the needs of the participants.”
“I liked the techniques side of using the machines, e.g. what joints you could make and how.”
“Lots of detail. Practical advice regarding buying machinery, tailored to our circumstances.”
“Very organised with every opportunity to ask a full range of questions.”
