His work has earned him 1st place in competitions in the categories of woodturning and furniture making. His wood art is normally one of a kind. He is retired and lives in Hendersonville, NC.
We offer this hands-on class because it is the best way to learn woodturning. Morning session will cover lathe safety and operation and traditional tool use. You will then learn and practice doing beads and coves, pummels, tapers, roughing down spindle, etc.
In the afternoon, you will do your own spindle turning project such as the small box shown in the photo.
