Woodworking for Beginners

Mackays have been successfully running Training Courses for many years both for staff and customers, in our purpose built training room.

Richard Morley from Woodcraft BPW has been teaching and demonstrating his woodwork skills for a number years, he also runs a successful YouTube channel on which he shares videos of his latest projects. We are delighted to be associated in this joint venture with him.

Woodworking doesn't have to be daunting! Many people shy away from woodworking simply because they haven't done it before, or they think that they'll need to go out and buy lots of expensive tools. In reality, some basic woodworking skills can substitute for expensive tools allowing you to create the project of your dreams.

On this course you will learn the differences between hard and soft wood, how to use the most common hand and power tools, how to create simple yet effective joints and how to protect your projects.

The course will start at9:30amand finish at4:30pm. There will be time available for you to enjoy a complementary light lunch.

This one day course costs£125.00. A£25.00non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking with a balance payment of£100.00to be paid on the day of the course.

A minimum of 2 bookings are required for us to run this course. If you make a booking and the minimum is not met we will contact you (48 hours before) to arrange another date or refund your deposit.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have regarding training courses.

“Great course! A good mix of theory and practical hands-on time. Richard is a very talented instructor who can clearly explain the concepts.”

“Richard was an outstanding teacher and, despite having used a router before, I learnt loads. There was a really good balance of demonstration, teaching and hands-on.”

“Richard, was an exceptional teacher. I learnt a lot and am enthusiastic to rout at home and learn more but I feel I now have the grounding to do so safely.”

“A brilliant introduction and well delivered course. Lots of effort put in by all involved, I would highly recommend.”
