I am a state-certified Industrial Technology Teacher. I have been teaching woodworking and woodturning classes in public schools and other venues for over 30 years.

If you are interested in private or small group (up to four adults) classes in woodturning technique, a few possible class topics are suggested below. Or you may suggest another topic you are interested in. Classes can be developed to suit your interests and may be conducted in my studio, or yours.

Basic turning techniques (bowl and spindle)

Eccentric turning

Texturing, coloring and finishing

Hollow forms

Making boxes


I also demonstrate techniques for woodturning clubs and other organizations that are interested in what woodturning is all about.

To discuss and schedule a woodturning class or demonstration please contact me.
