CS actually designed this class to be a one-day class, so there is plenty of time. I think I like this pace, as there never seems to be enough time at woodworking classes. Both of the classes I took before (the tool chest class and the workbench class) found me in a constant state of feeling I needed to hurry up because I was a bit behind. It's great to be motivated and to stay busy, but half the fun of these things is wandering around BSing with fellow woodworkers, and looking at their tools.
Dictum, as always, has been great so far. The stock they chose for us to construct these saws from is elm. I find this wood a bit of a challenge, but it should be fine wood for a saw. The location is not bad, either. Due to the flooding at their shop in Niederalteich, this year's class was moved to the shop in Munich. This shop is a lot smaller, but we are making due. Indeed, I find a few benefits to this shop, including the fact that it is within walking distance to my house. Also, the Dictum retail shop is right across the hall.
For anyone who is interested, there are still a few empty slots for Chris' Roorkhee chair class starting Wednesday. Contact Dictum for more details.
