Richard,
That is GREAT!
Half-price or nearly that of the "other guys" teaching the same thing, with less attention to "walking away" with the skill to "Do it" in your own shop!

ive read this line several times and I'm wondering if it sounded better your head when you typed it or not.:wsmile:

I truly hope and want folks to walk away with the ability to move forward with this. Now, with that stated one must take the information here and practice a little as often as possible. There will be reference materials to take home as well, you see I will be putting out a lot of information accompanyed by several hours of hands on work but if you do not take that and practice often then it's not going to stick. Now as far as price, I assure you that the price is only going to go up over time. The fact that I am an unknown in the area of teaching with these folks and that I'm not a personality has an effect on price. That's OK, I am confident that will change over time. I just want to be fairly compensated and I want share the knowledge that have worked really hard over my life to obtain. Well, I've gotta go to a job site today see ya!

I’m sure he meant that some other classes are more expensive and they do not offer as much hands on attention.

No, you did take that wrong - I meant the Other guys are double the cost or nearly double the cost and they are less attentive to giving the student the skills to replicate them in their own shop.

You have shown me something and given me a method to retain the information so that when I am trying to replicate it, it is as easy as when you were teaching it...

I read it a couple of times and I think Mike is right on his take.

At the website go to Learn/Woodworking/Furniture.
