This site is designed around my interest in woodturning and in particular the teaching of woodturning. There are a number of project handouts and teaching recommendations that you can download. The calendar reflects my demonstration and teaching schedule. With the help of my turning friends, I hope to continually add new project instruction handouts developed by myself and my fellow turners.  


I and several other woodturnering instructors are  presenting "Virual Demos" for the Carolinacraftscenter twice a month , as well as club demos. check out the website.
