Our Guest Roger Berwick – Woodworking with SIP

It is always at the end of the year where many people will start reminiscing over the year gone by and reflecting upon their achievements over the last few months but what I always find more exciting is the anticipation of what the New Year will bring after the Seasonal Festivities are over.

2015 has been a great year for me personally culminating in some ways with my debut on the Hochanda Channel showcasing some fantastic equipment from the range of SIP Woodworking Machinery, demonstrating its abilities and hopefully passing on some of my experience as a Professional Cabinet Maker.



Looking ahead to 2016, I am quite excited as not only will I continue the job I love creating bespoke hardwood furniture in my workshop just outside Diss on the Norfolk & Suffolk border, undertaking one to one training in Cabinet Making skills but also regularly being able to bring the Hochanda TV viewers further shows which I hope you will find entertaining and informative whilst also introducing you to some fantastic equipment that you can buy for your own workshop.

During 2016 I will be appearing on Hochanda TV on the first Sunday of each month with the exception of the January shows that will be on the 10th January during which I will be showcasing both Table and Scroll saws. 

Whether you are an experienced woodworker or new to this hobby I hope that you will join me. I am already planning the content of the shows for you but if there are any elements of woodworking you would specifically like to see, be it a certain type of tool, joint cutting technique or how to make a certain item please do not hesitate to get in contact so that I can see whether I can include these in the shows for you.

Anyway I hope that you all have a fantastic Christmas break and would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous 2016.
