Rank #1: Bob Van Dyke’s 6-week Intensive Woodworking Class – 360w360 E.236

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking Bob Van Dyke, owner of the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking, is on the hot seat to explain why he calls his 6-week intensive woodworking class “the best he’s ever taught.” Here’s a hint: It has to do with the fact that there is no project. Join 360 Woodworking every Thursday for a lively discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Glen talks with various guests about all things woodworking and some things that are slightly off topic. But the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun. If you have topics you’d like covered in future episodes, click here to send 360woodworking an email. Ditch The Project Bob Van Dyke has taught woodworking for more than 2o years. He knows what makes a class good. As his 6-week intensive class – four days per week for six weeks – has evolved, it’s turned into a class that he feels is the best way for aspiring woodworkers to learn woodworking. After a couple of early renditions of this class, Bob was convinced – it wasn’t difficult to do – by class participants to do away with a project. That opened the door to way more learning.
