"Great class, indeed. Opens a world if possibility. There were 4 of us, and it was a wonderful break from routine life in Dubai fir all of us. The instructor showed us how to use a few essential machines and gave each one of us a turn at them. We each got out with a finished small candle holder made of wood, crafted by iwn own hands."

"It is a great class for any beginner. Got to use machines that I only saw on videos like the jointer, planer, table saw, router, drill and sand belt. The wokshop was nicely paced and the instructor was engaging and kept the content interesting. We learned about safety procedures when using the machines and came out with with a small something that I made myself "
