Welcome to WoodenBoat’s Mastering Skills, a membership website dedicated to the craft and related disciplines of wooden boat building. Videos are at the heart of Mastering Skills: we post a new one each month, typically an hour or more in length. In each episode, our host, Rich Hilsinger, the former director of WoodenBoat School, works with master craftspeople to deliver an in-depth lesson on the art and craft of boatbuilding. A Mastering Skills membership includes access to every video we’ve ever posted (video series index), plus admission to an ever-growing library of books and an archive of articles from the pages of our print magazine, WoodenBoat. You will have this access as long as your account is active.
