I’m interested in the responses to this post as well.

I think my woodworking experience is much like yours. I’m essentially self-taught through the use of magazines, YouTube, this site, etc. The only planes I have are a spoke-shave, block plane, and a smoothing plane. I rely primarily on power tools and use hand tools for finer detail work or specific tasks (e.g. block plane for flush trimming or removing blade marks). Like you, I feel that I may have developed bad habits and/or may not be using the optimal/right techniques.

I think I would enjoy one of those longer term (multiple month) woodworking schools—maybe when I retire.
