Turn left onto West Fairlee Road. School is #305, about 300 yards from the lake on the left, opposite the little green shack with the red roof.

 
George’s ability to instruct, keep all the projects moving, and to fix mistake after mistake was definitely the most significant factor. It was very reassuring that if any one of us made a mistake George would calmly have a quick fix. That was the ‘best’.
Each new event in the instrument making process was demonstrated and very well explained and each misstep was corrected and everyone’s project just kept moving towards completion.
The work stations and the quality of tools and equipment in them were very impressive, great shop. Students never had to wait for a tool and each tool was well cared for and functioned well, another thing that kept all the projects moving.
Another very pleasant surprise was your willingness to share your jig designs. If you had chosen to sell jigs or jig-design drawings I would have completely understood but everything was readily available to record in any way for further use. This has made it much easier to move forward.
