My hubby has decided that he is going to finally start learning how to use his wood router and design some custom pieces for our home. (Hopefully, an entertainment center) 🙂 When he mentioned this to me, I thought about the online woodworking classes that are available at Craftsy.com and I told him to check out a FREE class called, “Flawless Finishing” to see if this would be a type of learning environment that makes sense for him. I think he will enjoy that he can watch these classes anytime he wants on his phone or tabular device. Which is perfect for anyone who is always on the go! Below, is a class description and if you decide to give Craftsy a try, you must check out all the other FREE classes that are available while your there. Now, I want my hubby to get cracking because I really do want a new entertainment center…..LOL

What good does it do to buy all of that those tools and not have a clue as to how to use them, and…..honestly I would rather learn from someone else than my hubby at times. LOL
