  • Rockler & Woodcraft classes

    Those classes are great, and I wouldnt' deter anyone from taking them, however, they are not cheap. Usually in the range of 100 or more per session, and after the day you don't get to take them home with you. I prefer a video to one of those presentations. Learn a little more every time you watch em.

    Community colleges offer good classes at reasonable prices and let you use equipment you would never buy because of cost.

      I took Woodcraft's Basic Woodworking -- it was kind of expensive ($75) and I don't know that I'd do it again, but it gave me the confidence to go on and then do a whole lot of stuff by myself.

      One problem is that they have you use a whole bunch of equipment that you probably don't have at home. So after that class I knew about squaring edges with a jointer, but no other way.

      It was a good way to get started from nothing, though.
