Good day fellow woodworkers!

I have been pondering on the idea of joining an online woodworking teaching platform. I am mostly a evening/night woodworker so despite owning a lot of power tools I tend to favour the hand tool approach (dust and noise are the deal breakers for my family). Also, I would like a paid platform that offers step-by-step instruction for a given project. My four go-to woodworkers online each have a paid subscription to their blogs and all seems to charge roughly the same membership fees.

Paul Sellers –
Rob Cosman –
Shannon Rodgers –
Tom Fidgen –

Browsing around the blogs I have a pretty good idea of what a paid subscription would bring for all of the above, except for The Unplugged Woodshop. My questions are:

Is Tom Fidgen’s paid blog still active? Also, is the paid subscription providing you with step-by-step projects build or is it only techniques and lifestyle?

Is there anyone else out there offering online training that I am missing?

I don’t know about the others, so please take with however many grains of salt you feel you should.

I have come to like Paul Seller’s approach to teaching. The videos, for the most part, are fairly detailed, and walk through a step by step process on how to build the various pieces.
