Within minutes of the famous Las Vegas Strip and Historic Fremont Street, I am now offering 3 day courses in my fully-equipped workshop.

With a maximum of five students per course, each student will receive the utmost in personal attention and each course will be tailored to the requirements of the participant, whether just beginning woodturning or advancing skills. Each course will emphasize tool technique and use.
