What Others Are Saying About the Course

 

Steve Ramsey's ability to teach, while being entertaining and encouraging is a rarity. I really love how he always places the focus on the project, not the tools. He isn't promoting any particular brand of tools, and that moves him way up on the credibility scale

I’ve been watching Steve for a couple of years. I am sort of a newbie woodworker and felt he had knowledge that I could benefit from. He’s funny and teaches you in a way you can relate to as well as easily understand. I’ve completed all but three of the projects in his course to date. It’s really helped me to organize my shop and given me tools and knowledge that has helped build my skills as a maker, not just a woodworker. I highly recommend taking his course.

Unlike other YouTube videos or plans for projects, I find that Steve is able to put together a very easily understandable easy to follow set of plans and videos that even go over some of the skill sets that are necessary for each project. He makes things seem easy and explains things so that a beginning woodworker can really make awesome projects. I’ve been very happy with his course and plan on doing many more of his projects.

Steve has written amazingly easy plans to follow. I love every single project in The Weekend Workshop. My garage went from someplace where we threw junk, to a wonderful sanctuary where everything is organized and has its own place. Because of this course, my children say "can we go out in your workshop today?" It was always the garage no one wanted to go in. Now it's a place for my family to be together and build together.
