I know I haven't posted in a bit. I have a series of house projects that I'm acting as GC on and it's taking a lot of time. Hopefully, I'll get back to working on my guitars by next week. In the meantime...
I'm a member of Shannon Rogers’ Hand Tool School. I was reminded by a blog post over at Giant Cypress regarding this program that we have plenty of learning opportunities via blogs, podcasts (both audio and video). I'm a big believer that learning woodworking techniques of any sort can help you understand more about woodworking and make you a better woodworker. If you like power tools, folks like Marc Spagnuolo's The Wood Whisperer are a great resource not only for their own content but also the links to others related content. In fact, a video series that Marc posted was the initial motivation for me to try my hand at building guitars. If you like hand tools, then folks like Bob Rozaieski's Logan Cabinet Shoppe is a fabulous resource. There are more than I'm willing to list out there that fit into power tools, hand tools, are many with a combination of both.
Shannon's School is an especially useful source. It is a subscription service but is well worth it. He's produced a ton of content for this first semester and the content is very detailed. If you have ever purchased a DVD from a source to learn something, I'm sure that you have found it useful and worth the money. Well with Shannon's School, you get more detail than the average woodworking DVD can even think of putting on their DVD. In addition, Shannon supplements the school's video's with chances and Q&A to clarify things that may have confused you.
Shannon offers 1 semester at $100 and a full year at $150. I will be a member as long as my budget can support it and Shannon keeps producing great content. I recommend you do the same.
