Jeremy Broun - Routing Outside the Box in Bath

One to One Consulations

About the Course Leader:

Your imagination is the key to unleashing the full potential of what Jeremy Broun first dubbed as 'the most versatile tool in the world´. One-to-one tuition/consultation in his Bath workshop.

Jeremy Broun's association with Trend goes back to 1989 when he wrote ´The Incredible Router´ (a bestselling book for GMC Publications) promoting Trend cutters exclusively. At that time the only other book was ´Routing Techniques´ by Jim Phillips founder of Trend, so both are major pioneers in this field. Jeremy continues to promote Trend cutters and other Trend products in his definitive routing DVDs, Inspiring You Tube videos (Woodomain) and on his woodworking courses.

Course Details:

Jeremy is offering something quite different to the current mainstream courses that will appeal to the design-based woodworker and those keen to adopt innovative and efficient methods as well as individual consultation/tuition in imaginative ways to use the router as a problem solver. Jeremy has produced some of the most ingenious jigs for a wide variety of applications such as furniture and guitar making and pioneered various original routed joints.

His vast wealth of woodworking and design experience now spans six decades and is unrivalled. Fees are negotiable but on the basis of £35 per hour with daily discounts.

The Carpentry Store

A 2 day Basic Routing Course for the first time user.

About the Course:

The Carpentry Store is a family owned and run business in Naas, Co. Kildare. In 1977 Noel Fay Snr became a manufacturer of custom-built kitchens and was quickly recognised for quality through design and the construction of his cabinets. 1994 saw another stride forward in our history with the building of a state-of-the-art factory equipped with the latest technology and CNC machinery. Being one of the first to embrace this new technology allowed for the expansion into contract machining and manufacturing for various commercial customers.

In 2003 the business expanded again to include the opening of The Carpentry Store to meet the requirements of the local woodworking trade and the DIY enthusiasts who had a love for wood. On the 31st May 2003 we were delighted when the journalist and presenter Marian Finucane officially opened The Carpentry Store. The latest venture was the launching of our new web store in February 2016. The business continues to grow from strength to strength and from generation to generation.

Time: 9.30am - 4.00pm

Course Details:

This course will consist of safety in the workplace and on the router.

You will explore hand held routing and the use of the router fence, bearing guided cutters and guide bushings. During the course you will produce a panelled door on the router table and create joints by using the dovetail jig.

The course is practical and hands on and will allow the students to get the most out of their routers and router tables. The student will experience the many different ways a router can be used and this will allow them to take their routing to new heights.

All safety equipment, routers, timber and light lunch are supplied.

Course places are limited so book early.
