Teaching has become one of the most rewarding and enjoyable aspects of my career in woodworking. There is nothing more satisfying to me than to work side-by-side with my students, giving them the skills they need to complete a woodworking project, and helping them realize their own potential to plan and execute future projects.
My classes are structured so that students can leave with a finished piece and learn techniques like steam bending, and the cold lamination process that is used in creating the beautiful curves of a Sagamore chair. In addition to wood shaping skills, canoe makers learn how to handle fiberglass cloth and epoxy to make their boats strong and waterproof. Table makers, using raw-edged wood slabs, learn the methods I have honed over many years for creating exquisite finishes to highlight their natural beauty.
I regularly teach classes at the Adirondack Folk School, as well as at other locations in the United State, so please reach out to me if you are interested in taking one of my classes, or hosting a class at (570) 350-3190.
