We’d like to share a charming thank you email from a visitor from the American Midwest who came to the Chippendale School this summer to learn how to make a display cabinet to house his antique musket. Chad, we look forward to welcoming you back next year!
“You don’t know this but I have looked for a woodworking school for about 8 years. I chose the right one when I picked the Chippendale International School of Furniture.
“I still remember and relish the smell of sawdust when entering your shop. The muted colors, the quiet sounds of workmanship taking place, and the most singular focus where nothing matters but the wood, my vision and me.
“Your teaching technique was so efficient with emphasis on getting results without loss of quality that I feel it has advanced my capabilities considerably. Indeed, it is reminiscent of my business ventures where I have always promoted the idea ‘Quality Costs When You Don’t Have It.’
“You surely do and I found my experience very refreshing – so much so, this is my reservation to spend another week in your school next year.
“Of course, it is also a nice chance for me to spend some time in Edinburgh and get away from the office.
“Sandy was so positive and encouraging and I enjoyed working with him very much. And I learned more than I could imagine.
“Please share my compliments with your staff and, particularly Sandy, for helping me have a wonderful experience.
