1. Where would you recommend learning the basics of woodworking? I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area (Arlington actually). Do junior colleges generally have some classes? Maybe Home Depot or Lowe's might have classes? I'm not sure where to start to tell you the truth.
2. I recently acquired some geode-type rocks. Unfortunately, they need to be cut in order to see the inside (duh, right?). What type of saw (or other equipment) would be needed to cut through rock? Someone here mentioned that a "wet saw" would do it, but I'm not familiar enough with any types of saws to know.
