Are You Kind of a Beginner with Power Tools?

RTR Photo - Season I

I love seeing the look on people's faces when they realize what they can do with a few tools. 

That's why I'm teaching a free "Power Tools for Beginners" class (1 hour) at the Toronto Fall Home Show Friday October 2 (3:00) and Saturday October 3 (3:30).  I'd love to see you there. 

We'll cover 4 basic power tools you need to build your own shelves, fences, outdoor furniture, planters and toys.  It'll be SO FUN.

I have some fantastic colleagues who are also teaching free classes this weekend at the show:
