So the only gauge of a woodworking instructor is whether they have videos on youtube?

Like many here, I like Paul, think he’s a great resource, but I don’t see him as particularly special. Schwarz has lots of videos, but you have to buy most of them. Does that make him less than Paul if he puts more of his content up for free? Paul also has a DVD series for sale at Lee Valley. Paul obviously teaches face-to-face, so are the youtube videos just a loss leader to drive attendance?

Looking at his website ( I’m not too sure I like his vibe either; sound more than a bit elitist; although maybe it’s not intended to be.
