Nice that the forums are back- and that I could register a new account (with my name and regular email).
So I have started a build class. It's taken a long time to line up the details with the venue (who wanted me in the first place), but the first official class is this week. We're building Shrike plywood kayaks, starting with cutting the panels on a CNC router. I'm wondering how many people have ever run a build class before, and what the major pitfalls are going to be. I'll hold my nose for the horror stories, since I've passed the point of no return.
