David Ringheim and David Stryck are the new instructors of the Fine Woodworking Program at Selkirk College.

This school year was one of passing along the proverbial hammer in the wood shop at Selkirk College’s Silver King Campus. The Fine Woodworking Program has two new instructors at the workbench and while they may be new to teaching, their foundation for their craft lies firmly in the course they now teach.

I rave about my time at Selkirk College to my friends and family.  I would classify it as the most creative time period in my life thus far and it has inspired me to continue creating.  For aspiring woodworkers, I highly recommend the Program.

Living and studying in Nelson is indeed an absolute pleasure. As for the Fine Woodworking program itself, I cannot speak highly enough of the learning opportunity with which I was presented. The level of instruction is strong, the resources at disposal (shop equipment, materials) are plentiful and up to date, and the whole community is excited by the work the students create every year.
