" I really enjoyed my zoom woodwork classes with Ian.

I made a couple of tables and a playhouse for my kids as a hobby before meeting him. But now, after Ian’s lessons, I am excited to start my own business making wooden furniture. Ian is an excellent teacher, calm, patient and explained in details to all my questions about wooden joints, hand and power tools. In our zoom lessons he explained me how some projects I liked were made while doing super good hand drawings illustrations. I highly recommend Ian for all woodworking enthusiasts."

Zoom Help for Wood Projects

Your Zoom help meeting gives you the opportunity to tap into my 45 years of experience teaching woodwork and product design to help you develop your design ideas, choose the correct materials , work out dimensions of components, choose suitable joining methods and explore how the making of your project can be tailored to the tools equipment and space you have available to you as well as your skill level.

Projects that would be appropriate for a Zoom help meeting could be a simple as making book shelves or as complex as utilising that space under the stairs or even building your own workshop!

Meetings can also be used to find 'workarounds' for corners you might have backed yourself into on projects you have already started as well as demonstrations of the use and setting up of hand tools or power tools that might improve the outcomes you are currently getting. 

Zoom meetings are held in my Garden Workshop using three cameras - one for normal Zoom interaction, one for bench demonstrations and one for capturing design development sketches.

How it works...

  • email or phone me with an outline of what you want to achieve in your help meeting.

  • I'll let you know if what you require fits within my skill set and let you know roughly how long a meeting would be appropriate. (I'll ere on keeping things short, fun but to the point!) The meetings run up to an hour in 15 minute units

  • You reply to let me know if you want to go ahead and we arrange a mutually convenient date and time.

  • I schedule the Zoom meeting, email you the necessary details and payment is made into my account prior to the meeting. (This is prior to me moving this facility on to my booking site)

Cost:- £10 for a 15minute session and pro             rata thereafter up to an hour.
