Topic tags/keywords: dont miss this deal i will see ya there

Rob COSMAN has a new site he invited me to try it out and for the past couple of days I have been looking at it as a hybrid woodworker I am not just a hand tool guy I like to use both hand and Power tools HOWEVER rob teaches you things that you may not know may not have been taught even if you took a good class in woodworking in school. I am pleased to recommend this hand tool school online for you IMHO IT IS THE BEST ONLINE INSTRUCTION i have found Now the good news there is a free version of the class to get a chance to look around then about 20 dollars a month to stay with full access DON’T MISS THIS DEAL I will see ya there Lance click herec http://robcosman.memberlodge.com/subscribe

Very cool… I also noticed you can get a free month with purchase of a Wood River plane from Woodcraft. That’s a nice perk as well if you’re looking at a plane purchase.

I may give this a try. I had also checked out Hand Tool School, but I’ve liked Cosman in his DVDs, and I like the two 30 min lessons each week.

I’ve got all of his videos and have watched them all multiple times. He has a good teaching method. I’ll have to check out his on line classes. It is always good to get new perspective in projects even if you are not in the mode to make what someone is teaching. Thanks for the link.

I just signed up last week and watched all the candlebox episodes. There’s a ton of good info on there. I just did the hand tool part because that’s what I’m most interested in but it’s nice to watch live bevause even he makes mistakes and gives great guidance on how to correct them. A lot where most prerecorded videos miss on. It made me feel better that even Ron cosman doesn’t cut perfect dovetails every time, but he’s fun to watch and you get to learn a lot! Between him, Paul sellers, and Christopher schwarz, I’m hoping one day I can be half as good as any of them.

ber ber Schwartz is not a great craftsman you can easily do better than him. he is a writer who has been fortunate to work at a magazine where there are a few skilled guys, who he has learned some stuff from. he is a good historian and is good at getting new guys into hand tools.

I’m a big fan.. I met him at a local show and ended up buying a wood river plane from him on his show special.. I follow his plane sharpening method and have great repeatable results. Thanks for posting this, I will be taking advantage of it!
