Vraiment content d’avoir appris à monter un meuble droit, à comment suivre les étapes dans l’ordre et comment utiliser les bons outils. Tout était super

Guillaume était un excellent professeur, il nous a donné une tonne d’excellents conseils pour nous permettre de créer de A à Z un superbe caisson en bois! C’était mon premier cours chez Les Affûtés, mais certainement pas mon dernier! Je recommande à toutes et tous!

J’ai beaucoup aime travailler en equipe, et j’ai senti avoir assez de temps pour comprendre et executer les etapes. J’ai aussi aime le format d’avoir un atelier pour une journee complete (Parcours intensif).

I appreciated learning how to think about the steps that go into planning a project. Starting from the end product and thinking of all the assembly and hardware before starting.
