Welcome Joe. You're lucky to have found the hobby of a lifetime while so young. Nearly all of us here have built our skills, tool collection and shops over long time periods. I wrote a long piece on the things that really helped me improve my skills, you'll find it here, titled 17 things that accelerated your learning curve.

Hopefully, the information will help you avoid some pitfalls, save you some money and move you along in the hobby.

Welcome to the Forum Joe,

It's a great place to learn anything woodworking.
I recently opened a fine woodworking school near Montreal Canada and one of my first students is also a Pastor. He is also eager to learn.

Dan,

No website, small operation courses on Saturday morning. First course started 3 weeks ago and only 2 students. If more demand next semester, then I will continue, if not no big deal. My investment was to buy 2 small workbenches from the guy I took my courses from 9 years ago, so I can probably re-sell them worst scenario. This all started when someone on a local Facebook group posted asking where he could take woodworking courses. When I found out Gary closed his school 2 years ago, after 13 yrs. and many students, he suggested that my talent and skills could be passed on and that I should pick up where he left off.
Cheers,
Dan
