Robert Lazlo suggested you might be interested in a scraping class. I'm in Oklahoma but hypothesize that a class with Forrest Addy in the Dallas area in maybe later April might draw from a large enough area to make it a go. This would be a Sat/Sun workshop, full days costing about $200 - $250 plus incidentals I think.
I've corresponded with machinist groups in Dallas, OKC, and Houston. Are you interested and do you know of others who might be?
