About this website
Woodwork is fun,
Learning is fun,
But being taught can be really tiresome
Especially for kids who don’t want to sit still for 6+ hours a day trying to understand concepts and other theory-based knowledge
Teachers are trying to get the key knowledge across by telling, showing and explaining but learning in this matter doesn’t come easily
My name is Christopher and I am a Woodwork/Product Design Teacher. Before I became a teacher, I was a cabinetmaker for 8 years building custom joinery and furniture
My Philosophy on Teaching
I am far from the most experienced teacher on the planet
But it is my philosophy that the only thing that really makes good classes is preparation. In other words time, effort and experience
The idea behind this website is to help pool some of that into making woodwork teaching a little easier
Giving you the benefit of mine, and others

Where to now?
There are plenty of posts on TeachingWoodwork.com for both teachers and parents. These are the latest ones.
I also have an Etsy shop where I put projects that I have made or stuff you can use for the classroom.
