I am surprised that there has not been a review of TWW guild posted before.
I am a novice wood worker and last spring I decided it was time to build my first workbench. I dont plan on building more than one of these, so I decided to build the best one that I could. After doing all the obligatory research by reading Schwarz’s book, Landis’ book and reading all I could here on LJ’s, I still didn’t feel I had the skills to pull this off. So, I joined the TWW guild specifically for the Roubo bench build.
Briefly, the membership cost a $100 and came with a cutlist, PDF plans, and a sketch-up model. You also have access to a project specific forum and you can even email Marc directly if you get stuck. All these are great but not as invalualble has the hours of video Marc shot for this build. Each one was detailed and easy to understand. In fact, with these I really never felt lost or had that many questions of what I needed to do.
I often would take my iPad in the shop, watch the videos and just “paint by numbers”.
I could go on about what a great value the “course” is but I will the results speak for themselves. I have never built anything like this before. Thank you Marc.
