Russ, Check out the adult education system in your area. Out here we have a fantastic woodworking and woodturning curriculum from the very basic beginner classes to fine furniture classes and everything in between.

Thanks for the ideas! found a weeklong class in Berea, KY. It is taught by Kelly Mehler and Franz Klaus is the guest teacher as well! Should be fun.
