After retiring from a career in professional Rugby League, Brett returned to his trade as a qualified Carpenter/Builder where he gained many years experience in the Construction Industry. During this time, he renovated many of his own homes and also worked on commercial projects. His passion for teaching kids the art of woodwork came about during the years of homeschooling his children and they enjoyed the simplicity of working with timber. He realised the days of woodwork classes in schools had become almost obsolete and where else would this important life skill be taught to both boys and girls? So this, along with increased parent interest in his private sessions meant an idea was born.
