Has anyone taken one of Adrian Ferrazzutti’s boxes making classes or any other of his classes? Basically I am interested in his box making class and am considering taking it. I have seen only one of his articles that was published in Fine Wood Working Magazine but that’s about it. I haven’t heard anything about him good or bad so basically I am looking for opinion’s about one of his classes as it’s not too bad of a drive for me to attended one. I really would like to take one of Andrew Crawford’s box making classes as I love his boxes. But Adrian is the only box maker that offers classes that I have found that makes boxes similar to Andrew’s without having to travel abroad (South Shropshire UK) Can anyone give me any insight about him, his classes, or another artist that teaches classes on box making in the Andrew Crawford’s style?

Thanks

Boxes are simple forms. If you need to know how
to knock-off a style, find a local furniture pro and show
him or her some pictures.

Loren, Have you ever seen a Andrew Crawford box? (http://www.fine-boxes.com/gallery) It is in no way a simple form and cannot be as simple as finding a local pro. He is a master at what he does and can in no way can be dismissed as a simple form.
Anyone else know of a master craftsman that does these kinds of boxes that is in my area or coments on Adrian Ferrazzutti’s ?

Thanks

Jim, thanks for posting the Ray Jones box designs collection, he defiantly has a unique style. In looking at your last project I would guess that he had some influence in your latest design. Great job on that. He reminds me a little of Terry Evans boxes.

Hi, very new member. I signed up just to say take the class. Adrian is a great guy and a very good teacher. He is one of the woodworkers that teach in the 12 week program at Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine. I spent about a month learning how to do curved work from him and can honestly say that he improved my skills more than any other instructor I have had. Can’t say anything about his box making classes, but I can speak to his skills a s a teacher as being very good. Hope that helps.

limetruk, Welcome to the forum. Thanks for signing up. I do appreciate you doing so just to post on my question.
From what I have read from my internet search it seems like he does have a lot of talent under his belt. But you are the first person that has had experience that has replied (posted on other forums as well) and if you spent about a month there I think that you would get a good feel for his knowledge and teaching experience. It sounds like you really enjoyed him and your learning experience. I have taken a few classes at different schools as well and I know a good teacher can make a big difference. Thanks for posting your insight and first hand knowledge. Just what I needed.

Thanks for the welcome. I’m not that good at these forums, but will try to participate more. I do believe though in giving credit to people who helped me shape my career and skills. Adrian is an amazingly good woodworker and at least as good of a teacher (at least to me, hopefully you all have that same good experience if you decide to take his class).

I guess I need to work on my profile and scout the other forum subjects now.

Have your say...
