I just completed the 6 Day Foundational Woodworking class at the Heritage School of Woodworking. I’m very glad I did that. It was well worth the time and money. It’s a good curriculum teaching basic woodworking joints and techniques. I feel I have a much better ‘foundation’ to build on now.
These projects turned out better than I thought they would (as I was building them). Yet, I discourage anyone from looking at them too close. :) You WILL see a lot of mistakes! laffs. I learned, I have a lot to learn! :) I need a lot of practice. But, I also learned, it can be done.
The instructor was Frank Strazza. A very good teacher and a Master Woodworker of the highest caliber and talent. Not to mention just a really nice guy. Take a look at “The Rose Table” he built and won best of show in Texas Furniture Makers Show. It’s a work of art!
The curriculum for this course belongs to Paul Sellers. It is the same information in his book and DVD set “Working Wood 1 & 2: The Artisan Course.”
As well as what he teaches in his new woodworking school, New Legacy School of Woodworking.
And via his new online Woodworking Masterclasses (of which I am a registered).
Sorry about all those “plugs” but, I really feel this is a quality program that Paul developed. If I could afford to travel to New York and take the course directly from Paul Sellers, I would. But, the Heritage course was much closer to me, making it more affordable and still very valuable.
