Hi Darren, welcome aboard .
Dont be put of by your work conditions, unfortunately too many apprentices are treated in the same fashion as you. Deadlines and targets, sometimes do not allow an employer to devote the time he should to his younger apprentice craftsmen, sign of the times I'm afraid.
Any way, if you want to learn about woodwork, there are all sorts of woodworkers here that will be only to willing to help you. This forum was started by people who have fondness for working with wood, and if you want to learn , stick around.
Any thing you need to know, start a new thread , and you'll get your answer.
