    Seeing such wonderful DIY projects have made me want to learn how to work with wood.
    Any idea if classes are available in the NYC area?

    Andres, I can't speak to woodworking classes in NYC (although I'm sure they have them - try the technical colleges and high schools for low cost courses) BUT...I speak from experience that if you get hooked on woodworking, you will definitely have a lot less time to spend on HT [​IMG] Enter cautiously, it is another slippery slope.
    To the good, the upgrade bug is a lot less fierce in woodworking. [​IMG]

    What do you mean the upgrade bug is less? Clearly, you must not have seen the 14" 3-phase table saws, or the 24" thickness planers. And how about that whole dedicated BUILDING that you need to REALLY do it right!! ;-)

    Many specialty suppliers (for example woodcraft stores)have traning in their stores. I learned pen making at my local Woodcraft store. Hope it helps
