Mastering Skills is dedicated to the craft and related disciplines of wooden boat building. Videos are at the heart of our online educational offering and we post a new one each month, typically an hour or more in length. In each video I work with a master craftsman 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, plus admission into an ever-growing library of books and an archive of articles from the pages of our print magazine, WoodenBoat.
I look forward to seeing you in the classroom.
