    Paul is a very good teacher of technique, you can't go far wrong watching him. I think the one basic step you need to learn is how to sharpen blades and chisels and what constitutes sharp. If you have to drive 200 kilometres to do that it will save you a lot of money and time because very few people when they start out have any idea of what sharp is and they waste a lot of money getting there. It would be a good short course for all new WW's if someone was to run one.

    I'll second that. The first thing I learned when I did a course with the late Les Miller was how to sharpen blades & tune planes. The first thing you learn at Sturt is the same. You will be surprised at how much easier that makes everything else.

    Don't worry if two different teachers teach two different ways, as long as they both work. In most aspects of woodwork there is more than one way that works. Learn both, but use the one that works for you.

    I don't know if you have a local community college, but they often run woodworking courses.
