I have been doing a lot of research on various furniture craftsmanship schools in my area (Philadelphia). I almost wish that I did not live in an area that had a few of them so it wasn’t so hard to choose from.
I have always liked working with wood and anything I have done before has been watching videos and reading. I am a big fan of the Wood Whisper and very thankful for guys like him that have helped. However, I consider myself a complete beginner as I never had any formalized training (Other than passed down from dad and wood shop in HS).
I am looking for the best woodworking education that I can get in my area for the money. I see that some schools offer a variety of specific classes and then others offer multiple and weekly classes that start from the ground up.
The schools I have looked at are:
I have seen JD Lohr reviewed on here some time ago. This would be the furthest away from me and the classes are very limited. I am looking at 5 months away for a start time
Thank you all very much for any reviews and advice that you can provide for me. It is greatly appreciated as I start my journey into serious furniture craftsmanship.
