I have attended a couple classes. One was a beginners/basic skills class with Gregory Paolini. He is in Waynesville NC which is beautiful spot in the Blue Ridge Mountians. It was a five day class and the project was a hall table. I really enjoyed it but it is REALLY hard for me to pull off a 5 day stent off work.

A couple months ago I took a class with Roy on Dovetails and mortise and tenon joinery. It was a hoot. It was a SUnday we started about 9 AM and finished around 6 PM. He is exactly as he is on TV.

I am going to another course with Roy next weekend on joinery planes. I am really looking forward to it. I’ve trying to get someone to go with me – but no takers.

I signed up for the Schwarz tool chest course @ Roy’s but I backed out considering the 5 day committment and I really don’t want a tool chest.
