Is anyone else a member of 360 Woodworking?
I’ve been a member since February and I have nothing but good things to say about it.
At first I was hesitant to join, but always enjoyed the guys’ work in Pop Woodworking, so I joined.
There are fantastic, informative articles, detailed videos, many blogs by the guys plus guest bloggers and article writers. Their podcasts are short but informative, and there are also classes and builds that you can take part in for a fee.
But the one thing that I’ve found invaluable, is the one on one relationship that you can receive.
I’m building a blanket chest, and being a rookie, I had some detailed questions that I needed answers to.
I figured that I’m paying for the membership, I should try to present my questions to them.
I really didn’t expect to get an answer, realizing how busy these guys must be, maintaining the site and producing content. But I was really surprised to get a response from Chuck Bender, who answered my initial stupid questions, and continued to reply, with detailed instructions, to every other question that came up, as I emailed him, almost daily.
Where else can you get that type of detailed help from a professional woodworker, who will take the time to guide you.
I’m a huge and forever fan and member of 360 Woodworking.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I was thinking about joining their site but was a little gun shy after having a complete disaster of an experience with another online woodworking school. Nice to know they care about their customers.

Happy to have you onboard and more than happy to help with your woodworking questions/problems. That goes for all Lumberjocks too, not just members of our site. Glen and I love to help others, but even if the question is outside our sphere of experience, we have a whole slew of authors/contributors that we can tap to get you the help you need. Don’t get me wrong, we need paying members to exist, but we’re happy to help any woodworker (if we can) regardless of whether they’ve paid us or not.

That said, I am glad I could help you and extremely appreciative that you also help support our habit.
