I was going to build a kitchen on the G&G style, I purchased Darrel’s book a long time ago but for this project I had a few questions so I asked him about it through Facebook, he answered my questions and even gave me tips on the questions I had. If your goal is to make fine furniture (even if it is not in the G&G style) I would recommend Darrel’s class over Cosman’s. “Training the hand” is only a matter of practice, if you practice making dovetails every day for a month you will be a wiz in no time. Learning building techniques is another matter.

Jim makes a good point, I searched for Cosman’s furniture and found nothing, so I decided not to get any of his videos. I am not a fan of Mr. Neil’s videos, his delivery drives me nuts, but one thing is for sure the guy knows what he is doing. I would take his class over Cosman’s as well.
