Private Instruction

Woodturning is a bit like learning to play a musical instrument. Attending a class or getting private instruction from a woodturner who can teach is essential. Getting a good, safe start by learning how to use your tools correctly. Videos, books and magazine articles cannot provide essential feedback like an instructor can on the small nuances. After a new turner gets the basics down, it is all about practice on their own to gain tool control.

I teach private lessons in my home workshop in Suwanee, GA just North of Atlanta. I teach woodturning basics, bowl turning, box making, texturing and thread chasing. Lessons are structured around where you are in your woodturning journey. I help you with what you want to learn: sharpening, tool use, bowl turning or other projects. I have a Laguna 1216 Midi lathe and a full-size Powermatic 3520b so can accomodate two students at one time. Contact me for more information.
