there are some good videos out there
by good i mean that the presenters know what they are doing and are
i find the videos useful
but sometimes it is more enjoyable to learn by doing and making
have picked up useful tips here and there from videos but nothing
beats just making things and learning as you go
which do you prefer or do you mix it up
When I first got into woodworking it was mostly trial and error and a
couple of magazines. The local Woodcraft offered a course for beginners
over a few days. It was a great confidence builder as we made a simple
CD rack that was designed to incorporate re-sawing, jointing, thickness
planing, dado, rabbets, curves, hand planing.
It was a couple of days invested, but knowledge that lasts forever and
I'm not afraid to tackle anything.
An alternative is to move next door to a very experienced woodworker.
depending on what i am going to do i like trial and error especially
when the errors i make are salvaged into something usable
learning by doing even in a class is probably close to doing it with
little to no knowledge
limited tools also can inspire new techniques
that is you get forced into coming up with a different approach
