Sunday Mornings with Adam Crosland

Welcome to the School of Fine Woodwork’s Short Course. Richard Crosland’s School of Fine Woodwork’s Short Course has been developed for beginners by Adam Crosland. This course gives more people a chance to experience a fun, relaxing and productive woodwork class for a couple of hours a week, over 4 x 3 hour lessons regardless of experience or learned skills.


Each woodwork student produces a cross halving joint “Hot Pot Stand” from rough sawn timber, a “Dovetail Joint” and a mitred & rebated “Jewellery Box” measuring approx. 200mm x 280mm. Sunday class times are morning sessions from 10.00am – 1.00pm with Adam Crosland. The student uses a range of hand tools, power tools including the disk sander, linisher and table router. It is a very popular class and some students have gone on to make the Dovetail Box in the Intermediate Course. Some students stay on Sundays,and have made a number of personal projects designed for their homes, some have gone on to Richard’s classes during the week. Some students stay on indefinately and have been with Richard for up to 20 years, making it difficult to know exactly when a spot will be available. Prepaying will lock you in to the Short Course only and a spot will come up when its your turn to start your woodworking journey.
