I have to say that the JBP series is excellent.  I watched the fall DVD again, then went out and worked one of my pines, and I can't tell you how much better it looked.  I'm sure it would not have looked nearly as good had I not reviewed the DVD before I did the work.

I can't wait until I go to the Intensive!

Has that member SEEN the videos?  I have not seen anything that detailed and specific on the Internet.  Grahm Potter's videos come closest.   There are some BAD videos on the Internet, too.

The Stone Lantern book in my opinion is not that good.  It's a compendium of articles by different authors that use different terminology.  If you can afford them, I would save your money and buy the Boon DVDs instead.  I believe he offers a bit of a discount if you buy the group together.

If you want a free resource that is better than the Stone Lantern book, I would recommend this article from Hans van Meer:
