Have you taken any especially helpful classes at Highland? I'm a suburban Atlantan.

I've taken a few classes at Highland. One quick class on sharpening scrapers, and another on shop layout many years ago. Try to get into the hands on stuff rather than the "lecture" stuff.

The guys there are also very helpful with questions. Everybody in there is a woodworker, they don't ust have store clerks. In particular, Syndey is very helpful with finishing questions & is very willing to spend the time with you.

I've found it cheaper to search the web and watch videos and watch the woodworking shows on tv and try the stuff on my own. I watch New Yankee Workshop and The Wood Whisperer the most and I've learned loads!! The Wood Whisperer has a guild that allows you to have even more one on one contact with him to ask questions. I looked online to find a woodworker in my area as well. He took the time to let me shadow him and that has been loads of help as well. True enough I've watched tons of hours of woodworking youtube clips but like I said my favs are Norm and Marc. They both take the time to walk you completely through the processes. They don't talk down to you like your an idiot. They talk to you like you know what you are doing but not over your head.

Highland is good, I've taken some stuff there. Woodcraft also offers some, but I have not done anything there. The people at woodcraft are real nice and I would totally take something there.

There is also http://www.dogwoodwoodworking.com/

And the GA Woodworkers Guild is a good resource. http://www.woodworkersguildofga.org/

I've met some of the people at Dogwood Woodworking and they are nice people but unfortunately they have had to refund my registration fees 3 times due to lack of students to fill a class. Could be the economy or other reasons, but its frustrating to say the least.
