I am in the process of moving away from some power tools and really getting into hand tools. I guess this comes with age. Getting more into the process and worrying less about time. Anyways, I live in N.W. Indiana and found some info on the Marc Adam School of Woodworking located south of Indianapolis. It looks like some classes may be beneficial but was wondering if anyone out there has any comments or information on this school, good or bad.

Thanks Marc

This is a very classy school. You could scour the country and not find a school with better instruction and equipment. My son-in-law attended a segmented bowl turning class there under the tutelage of Malcom Tibbits. Marc Adams draws in some of the best woodworking instructors.

I believe that most of their classes are five days, but I think they have week-end sessions also.

I went to a 2 day Mark Adam class held at Thadous Stevens University hosted by Steve Latta. It was great.

I’m attending a 2 day class there on 4/25 & 26 on Hand Planes and their uses It is being taught by Lie-Nielsen & Chris Schwarz. It’s a pricey class but I think it will be well worth the money and a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from these two masters. From Chris’ previous blogs this will be the only class he conducts this year.
As to the Marc Adams School, their classes are all expensive but you get what you pay for. I’ll be able to write more after I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the school.

Mark runs a top notch operation. I’ve attended classes & never been disapointed.

Thanks for the replies. It’s beginning to sound like it is well worth the money.
