Glen was very knowledgeable and personable. The class exceeded my expectations with all the tools that we got to use and the support that we got from Glen in the process.

The class was wonderful and challenging. Glen is a supremely wise and generous teacher whose wisdom extends far beyond woodworking and nourishes your desire to live a fuller and more engaged life.

I ended up switching into the dovetail class instead of taking the tool sharpening class, but Glen was more than happy to teach tool sharpening skills to another student and me before the dovetail class started. This was my second class taught by Glen (the first was a utensil shaping class), and I hope to take more. He has a lot to teach, and he's eager to share as much of his knowledge and skillset as he can. He's quite a talented artist as well as teacher, and taking his classes is both enjoyable and informative. He mentioned preferring teaching without grades, but I give him an A+ without a second thought.

The class was excellent. Glen is a very helpful teacher. He's passionate about his work and eager to share any knowledge he can, even when answering detailed questions involving skills outside of the specific course. Through his utensil shaping class, I leaned and practiced skills that are widely applicable to various wood working projects. I plan to take his tool sharpening class as well to further expand my woodworking skill set. I highly recommend taking any class of his.

Glen has a world of experience and information to offer. Small class size with lots of opportunity to ask questions and receive help when clarification was needed. Relaxed atmosphere.

The class was a lot of fun and I like my picture frame! It took us an hour longer than scheduled, so maybe the class time needs to be adjusted.

Dave was very patient and took time to explain each step thoroughly. Nobody lost a finger either and we got to take home a beautiful little table. I learned a lot.
