What advantage is there to downloading these tutorials and woodworking classes?

The courses, tutorials and plans are developed in a simple to understand format with considerable detail and video. The step by step sequences are filled with photos and video of the steps being discussed. These sequences are skills developed and used in my own furniture making studio over a period of many years. The woodworking course is a 37 lecture video series explaining the woodworking topics you need to get going at woodworking! Magazine articles are short and books are out there but it means finding the right book when you need it with detailed information you need, when you need it. WoodSkills offers online, downloadable tutorials and courses which instantly provide you the information you need to be able to continue with a project or begin learning a skill now.

What if I don't find what I am looking for at the WoodSkills web site?

The selection of tutorials, plans, and woodworking courses is constantly increasing. We suggest you revisit the WoodSkills site periodically to check for an updated list of tutorials, plans and classes. We also accept suggestions on woodworking courses, tutorials and other information we can provide. We can develop a tutorial if there is enough demand for a particular woodworking skill.

I noticed some articles and tutorials do not have a buy button?

We include some free articles and tutorials as part of the selection of available tutorials. These are typically short and we are glad to offer them for free to help in the skill building of woodworkers and furniture makers. We can also be contacted for any assistance necessary with a particular sequence we offer through WoodSkills.

If I want more hands-on instruction, where can I go to get this?

You can attend short woodworking classes at community schools where you live or you can plan to attend the Refined Edge Design studio. We offer one on one instruction with as many as two students per session. A typical session usually runs for one week of consecutive weekdays. Having as few as two students per week long session allows the instructor to give you his complete focus. The learning curve is greatly speeded up using this approach. An example of a week-long session would be "How to Make Dovetails", "How to Create Joinery", "Selecting and Preparing Wood for Furniture Making". For further information about attending the Refined Edge Design studio, please contact us at the email provided.
