Learn Google Sketchup in a Weekend with Robert Lang

Learn Google Sketchup in a Weekend with Robert Lang

1008 days ago by Vate | 8 comments »

The Woodcraft store in Atlanta offered this class, which is three 8-hour days of training (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). I signed up after they dropped the price from $449 to $349. Overall, it was a very good class. Mr. Lang is engaging, knowledgeable, and clearly has deep knowledge of both woodworking and Sketchup. The content, apart from the basic Sketchup tools and navigation, was completely oriented toward woodworking, and was very useful. Mr. Lang mastered Sketchup by necessity, as...

Review of Instruction offered at Lonnie Bird's School of Fine Woodworking

Review of Instruction offered at Lonnie Bird's School of Fine Woodworking

246 days ago by Lyn | 8 comments »

Several years ago, I became interested in woodworking. I liked the idea of working with my hands and having something beautiful to give as a gift or pass down to the next generation. Since I didn’t have the slightest idea how to begin, I thought I would take a class. I found Lonnie’s school, and it was only about a 6-7 hour drive for me, I signed up for the Woodworking Essentials class. We made a shaker table, and I was hooked. Since then, I have taken three other classes at the s...

Woodworking classes among the clouds

Woodworking classes among the clouds

665 days ago by DHS | 7 comments »

Attending a class at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking is a big investment. Classes are not cheap, hotels in Port Townsend are pricey in the summer, and unless you live on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State, getting there will take some time and maybe a ferry ride. But, I am so glad I made that investment. I really enjoyed the two classes I took there. Port Townsend is a lovely little town with terrific sights, shops, and restaurants. During the time I took my classes it was...

Local school just getting started: Worth the Effort

Local school just getting started: Worth the Effort

51 days ago by Donna Menke | 7 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FToA4gh6Ths&feature=youtu.beThis school recently opened not far from where I live. I attended one of their ‘Free Friday’ classes and both learned a lot and enjoyed myself. The teacher has lots of enthusiasm and knowledge; and since he was a school teacher, he knows how to teach.The environment is extra friendly and the equipment first rate. A lot of thought went into setting this place up, and they did all the work themselves.I was there when th...

Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event - Indy

Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event - Indy

1647 days ago by Walnut_Weasel | 6 comments »

This Saturday (10/17/09) I attended the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Indianapolis at the Herron School of Art. I think it is worth mentioning right off the bat is that I am extremely new to woodworking and that alone may bias my opinions stated below. I had two main reason for attending this event: 1) Learn as much as possible about everything available, and 2) Get my hands on some Lie-Nielsen equipment to see what it is like to use high quality tools. Admission to the event was free! I...

A box making vacation in England

A box making vacation in England

1431 days ago by RogerBean | 6 comments »

For the aspiring cellist to spend three days with Yo-Yo Ma would be something special, certainly. For an aspiring box maker to spend three days one on one with Andrew Crawford is similar. Earlier this month, I had the pleasure to visit Andrew’s shop in Shropshire, England, and had such a great experience others might like to hear about it. Andrew builds what I consider “traditional” boxes. I confess to a clear preference for boxes that look like boxes. Many types of containers fall into...

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

101 days ago by tturner | 5 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books

2213 days ago by sandhill | 4 comments »

Finishing A to Z: Beyond the Books – So how useful is the set of DVD’s going to be? “Very much I hope” My finishing skills leave a lot to be desired – A REAL LOT so much in fact that if you see most of my projects on LJ they are all hand applied and natural finishes with no stains or dyes. The price of this DVD set was about $120.00. The first one bought was got and watched was not impressive it was very limited in content and Charles and Bob spent too much time just talking with...
