You will get a ton out of a class. You’ll spend a day or two just getting your planes and chisels into ideal working order. To me, having someone teach you how to have tools tuned, flat and sharp is a step many on their own don’t get right for a long time. Without the mere basics of sharp everything else is an frustrating mess.

My 2 cents on beginners tools: Low Angle Jack (LN 62) or Jack #5, LA Block Plane, Quality 5 Set Bench chisels, Good quality dovetail saw….. those get you almost anywhere, but almost basic honing guide, basic marking knife, basic marking gauge, good quality double square, bevel gauge, 4K/8k combo stone.

Get this stuff in order with a bench and good vice, your on your way…
