PM me... I teach a board building class at Brookdale Community College. The next class runs in August. I know you don't want to wait that long, but I have a materials list I give the students that I can send you.
Hey man i'm also looking into taking that shaping class at brookdale... do you have anymore info on that?
shipping from Greenlight for any of their kits are $49.00, compared to $185.00 shipping from California. Also it will be less than $49.00 to drive 2 hours most likely plus they can answer all your questions when your there.
Edit: Keep in mind i an biased but its just my .02
Edit #2: I forgot your 13 my fault! driving is out haha
