***SURVEY: THE IDES OF MARCH***

Ellis
>Well, in the better-late-than-never category, here is this month's survey question. I'm interested to know your thoughts on woodworking classes. There are degree programs (e.g., College of the Redwoods), private schools (e.g., Mark Adams), weekend tutorials (e.g., Ellsworth), seminar programs (e.g., Woodcraft and Lee Valley stores) and probably other outlets.

Which, if any, of these types of classes have you availed yourself of?

What do you regard as the pros and cons of the different types of programs? Do you consider them cost-effective for what you learn?

Do you have any recommendations for other channels of woodworking education? What does the future hold?

As usual, we will grind, chop, puree and digest your replies into a column for the next issue of Woodworker West magazine. You can visit previous survey topics in our News & Views department.

Thanks for participating in our survey.
