Great way to learn in a very friendly and informative environment
This course was a great introduction to door making and using the UJK Technology Router Table. I have attended several courses at Axminster, great way to learn in a very friendly and informative environment. Already booked another course for wood carving.Anon, Making Kitchen Doors & Jointing
I enjoyed the mix of instruction and practice, which was just right
I also appreciated how Jason gave me individual attention; helping me solve problems with my router and advising me on how to tackle routing tasks which were not covered in the course. The course was well thought out, was paced correctly and taught with humour. Jason was very knowledgeable and often gave tips which you would never get from a book and which solved a problem without having to buy more hardware.John S, Beginners Routing Course (2 day)
