Carpentry & Joinery Tutor Paul Slack said:
“In only five weeks the Multi Skills students will produced a mortise and tenon stool consisting of ten joints – which is impressive in such short time. This will complete the course syllabus covering for Halving and Mortise &Tenon joints – then they will move on to the next stage of the Multi Skills course.”
