You may have found some of my “redacted” tutorials on YouTube. Think of these as “trailers” to the full series of video tutorials which are organized into an online “Project Course” for each Project Kit. Each online course starts with a Table of Contents allowing the user to view the tutorials in sequence or to jump in and out as desired. Access credentials to each online course is included with the purchase of the related Project Kit along with both READ AND WRITE privileges to the forum for that same course.
Another method of learning is my (coming soon) “Private Session” mentoring. Purchased in 30-day increments these sessions are conducted via a unique, one-on-one online forum directly with the instructor. The student can privately ask specific questions; can get help with customizing the project; and the two can share files. (More about this coming soon but until then if you would like to help me test this system I am currently offering a limited number of free sessions. If interested please click on the Contact Us form to request a Private Session).
Mike offers project-specific, Hands-On Workshops here, in Door County, WI and at other venues (TBA). During these workshops a limited number of students build the entire project and will learn some of the tricks-of-the-trade that can’t be realized through any other medium. Remember, “It’s About Knock-Down™” because we use Mike’s patented Threaded Tenon Joinery™, so the small finished projects can be knocked down to fit into checked baggage on an airline or economically shipped via FedX/UPS. The mid-sized projects (i.e. dining tables, bunk beds, dorm-room lofts etc.) will fit in the back of an SUV and the really large projects (i.e. timber-frame gazebos and pergolas) will easily transport in the bed of a pickup.
Professional furniture builders, furniture manufacturers and builders of structures will want to give our Threaded Tenon Joinery™ a serious look. Our odd-shaped threaded metal tenons are ideal for mass production of knock-down furniture and structures. Our system makes it possible to not only fabricate but to then totally “dry assemble” beds, bunk beds, dorm-room lofts, dining tables and workbenches and then ship, frequently using standard UPS/FEDx rates, at a fraction of the cost to ship an assembled unit. Our engineered versions (coming soon) allow timber-framers to manufacture and then pre-assemble entire structures indoors, under controlled environments, to test fit, disassemble, finish and then ship knocked-down components for re-construction on remote jobsites.
Interested? I want to help! You have the interest, the time? I’ll be there in a heartbeat. No Charge! I’ll work with your technical, design, marketing and/or manufacturing staff to make it happen.
