I teach woodturning classes in partnership with my brother, Bill, at Alamance Community College in Burlington, NC and at the Crafts Center at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC.

You may sign up online for Fall classes now.  If you would like to visit a class to see whether it would be something you’re interested in you may call me to make arrangements.  (See Contacts page.)  Wednesday classes begin on August 25.  I teach every other Wednesday.  Classes are three hours long and begin at 2 pm and 6 pm.  I will be teaching every Thursday morning from 10 am to 1 pm beginning on September 9.  Visitors are most always welcome.

The classroom at ACC used to be the locker room for Broad Street High School.  We've had a lot of fun there.

The first session of Woodturning has already filled up.  John (woodshop director) is working to schedule more classes later in the semester.  The uncertainty caused by Covid is factoring into his decision making.

Here are the results of the first night of spindle turning. We all turned mallets from green white oak. The one on the left is still waiting for finish.

This fall I will be teaching a workshop focusing on sharpening and using chisels and hand planes on September 17, 18, and 19. I’ve given a detailed description of the workshop on the main page of this website.
