    It was an awesome workshop. David Homa did a great job teaching us how to, but also gave us lots of tips and tricks that will be useful for the future. Thanks!

    All we needed to know to construct our own - nicely done, Dave!

    David definitely knows what he's doing and is a great source of information. My only recommendation (or heads-up to others) is that the class went long; had I not been able to adjust my plans, I would have missed the most important part (for me - the plastic film application). Five stars if it had really been from 10-1 as outlined in the description, otherwise it was great.

    I'm available to give anyone a ride - I'll be driving and can pick you up. I'm in Portland.
