This fall I launched a podcast I hope will encourage some skilled woodworkers to take up arms...err...chisels and share their skills with their community. The podcast shares my experiences setting up and running a small one-person shop. Maybe, just maybe, we can increase our numbers and not go extinct.

You can listen to the podcast on any podcast player or the website, www.workingatwoodworking.com.

blockplane for woodworking classes


There's nothing like an in-person class, personal interaction, questions and answers, understanding and enlightenment. What could be better?

I am now offering classes in my shop....no more zoom (unless you request it)! Since my shop is small I can't host ten, six, or even four students at a time. In fact, three people in my shop gets a little crowded. Therefore, I limit my classes to one person or two friends, no more.

I've learned a couple of things about teaching woodworking over the last year or so: You get to ask the EXACT questions and work on EXACTLY what you want! We can cover a lot of ground especially when you come armed with lots of questions and problems to solve.

You can schedule a one or two-hour class during normal business hours or on Saturday, typically 10-12 or 2-4 PM. YOU CHOOSE THE TOPIC! It's YOUR class. If you have a specific project in mind you are welcome to bring your materials and I'll help you with the construction (you get to do the work). Send me an email with your thoughts. Sign up below. Cost is $45 per 60-minute session.

Virtual coaching is still available for people needing a little help with their woodworking projects, shop or tools over the phone or via Zoom. Visit my store for more information or ...
