If I spent that kind of money to take a class, you can bet I will be highly ticked off if I didn’t go home with a finished project, as well as the knowledge to reproduce it. If there are jigs or templates needed to build it, then I better have all the information needed to accurately build them.
It’s a class. Just the description means you should be learning to do whatever the title says at your own shop.

Anyone else counting the seconds until the first double entendre of each episode? Most episodes you can count them on your fingers – even if you aren’t a sawstop user! Marc, Matt and Shannon – thanks for edutainment… with more wood!
