“When I first started out, a few years back, with hand tools I found your DVDs very helpful. Over the course of time, I have taken some classes and read more books and articles. I’m not sure how or why, but I slowly moved away from your techniques. I have been struggling quite a bit lately, not getting the results I want. I was thinking to myself, I wasn’t having these issues when I was starting out. A lot of my issues revolve around sharpening. I then remembered that I always got the best results using your approach. Over the past couple days, I have gone back and watched the first few of your DVDs. I was amazed at how much information I had allowed to slip away or be replaced. I think I only spent 15 minutes in the shop, and my plane blade sharpening has improved dramatically! How could I have strayed off course! I know you might have your critics, but your approach always gives me consistent results. Spending an extra couple of minutes, over other approaches, is worth my time now. I’m now going to go back and review my chisel technique. Do you have any plans to release any new DVDs or travel to the US to teach any classes? Thank you again,”
