Perhaps the most important asset any woodworker – whether new or seasoned, whether working as a career or as a pastime – can have in the shop isn’t a tool at all. It’s knowledge; specifically, the tricks, tips, techniques, and strategies master woodworkers use to create projects both simple and elaborate.
In partnership with the Woodworkers Guild of America, the foremost authority on the ins and outs of woodworking, The Great Courses is proud to present Woodworking Tips, Tricks, and Secrets. Totaling over 11 total hours of content, these lectures are your go-to resource for essential skills, advanced techniques, and project tips so you can enjoy shop time like never before. Delivered by master woodworker and woodworking teacher George Vondriska, you’ll get a chance go inside a professional workshop for step-by-step walkthroughs of everything from shop-built project aids to tool maintenance and upkeep to more advanced lessons on sanding, cutting, measuring, bending, stabilizing, gluing, charging, cleaning, protecting, and much more.
Woodworking Tips, Tricks, and Secrets requires no prior knowledge and works as either a standalone course or as the perfect complement to other woodworking courses by Mr. Vondriska and The Great Courses. With his guidance and expertise, you’ll get a first-hand look at easy-to- learn and easy-to-apply techniques that will come in handy the next time you start an exciting new woodworking project.
As with his other woodworking lecture series for The Great Courses, Mr. Vondriska makes Woodworking Tips, Tricks, and Secrets an accessible, engaging resource for woodworkers of all levels. A woodworking instructor for over 30 years, he’s a seasoned instructor who’s played a key role in developing curriculum for woodworking education programs, woodworking shows, as well as for organizations including the Peace Corps and the Pentagon.
