In the past, I had a section on my website that offered a primer on checkering. In time it became apparent that there was a need for an updated, thorough and organized checkering course.
I spent three years writing that course, photographing my own work as I progressed through each stage of the checkering process.
The book is 8 1/2" by 11" printed in full color. I've chosen to have it printed in spiral bound form, as I feel that is the best way for the student to be able to lay it flat for reference while he performs the tasks. Pages are printed on 80# paper for strength and durability.
Books can be ordered through Amazon by following this link. For orders outside of the United States, Amazon has also been working very well for us.
For those in the U.S. who wish to send a check or money order, please send $75 plus $4 shipping, for a total of $79. Nebraska residents add $5.25 for state tax.
Books will be mailed immediatley upon receipt of funds.
While writing this course, I've tried to think of everything that wasn't covered by instructions available to me when I first started learning to checker in 1975. Because of that spotty information, the learning process was intimidating and frustrating for me. I've gone to great lengths to ensure that it won't be that way for you.
