am a fourth generation woodworker. I Took this class because it was
a prerequisite to the cabinet making class. I never expected to pick
up much in this class. Boy, was I wrong. Every class session taught
me things that I did not know before."
|"I found out about this program from an article
in the newspaper. Right away, I knew it was perfect for me. I thought
there would be a good amount of kids in the class that were my age
because I knew many people that were serious about it in high school.
I was surprised to find out that I was the youngest kid in the class.
I didn't feel out of place at all though."
real plus of this class is the people I have met - both in class and
those volunteers hopping about. What a great crew. I have enjoyed
helping my fellow students and amazed that these "kids"
have turned out great projects with little or no experience."
|"Well the day finally came, the first day
of class. I soon realized how little I knew. I told my friends, that
I started the class with, how embarrassed I was to even think I could
have started in the 105 class. Chris was so right. Start with the
100 class and work your way up."
|"I have been interested in woodworking for
30 years, but have taken no formal classes. All my efforts have been
self-taught and have, by and large, produced acceptable results. I
was at first somewhat disappointed that I was required to take the
introductory course - sort of a "been there-done that" feeling.
However, I must say that this intro course has been very worthwhile.
I've definitely learned a lot and have enjoyed the clock project."
|"I came to this class with not even the slightest
wood working skills or knowledge. Now I feel like I can talk the talk
and sort of make something that resembles what I had set out to make.
I think the best part of the class was meeting some very nice people
and the fact that with all the varied woodworking levels I felt comfortable
asking many of them for help. My husband's response to all this was
that he was not losing his spot in the garage. We will see about that!"
have learned so much in only 16 classes (sessions). The instructor
was easygoing, intelligent, humorous and interesting. The classmates
were fun and very helpful. What a great mix of people, from gray-haired
retirees to fair-hair teenagers. Thanks for the fun and knowledge.
See you in CFT 105."
