Have a problem you can't figure out? Confused by watching too much YouTube? Just want a straight answer? Would you really like to just, "Ask an Expert"?

There are great advantages to attending a formal class in a well-equipped shop with several like-minded people. I highly recommend the experience, but sometimes, they aren't what is needed. Have you ever...

  • taken a class only to realize it didn't cover what you really want to learn?
  • been in a class hopelessly large-you never get to talk?
  • wondered if you really need a 5-day class, 100 miles away that cost $875?

Advantages of Coaching

Ask me questions! Call me up, ask away. Sometimes you just have a few questions you would like a quick answer. Other times your need a long discussion about something that is not really covered in a class, like advice about setting your shop, should I purchase this tool or that one or my favorite, "I'm kinda getting started in woodworking, but not sure where to go from here...."

Area of Expertise

I have been woodworking for over 50 years and have spent a lot of money on books, magazines and tools. I have made many, many mistakes. I have unfinished projects, failed projects and a few, "well, THAT didn't end well!!!" projects.

And I have had a lot of successful projects. I'm blessed having worked professionlly for nearly 20 years in this industry. Here are a few things I'm really good at:
  • Woodworking
  • Furniture Making
  • Furniture Repair
  • Built-in Furniture
  • General Home Repair
  • Wood Canvas Canoe Restoration
  • Canoe and Kayak Repair
  • Wooden Boats

So How Does This Work?

  • PHONE- Old fashioned but some of us still use it!
  • ZOOM or SKYPE- Great when I need to see what you are working on to dynanosa problem
  • EMAIL- Good for sharing photos and to answer simple questions (I don't type fast!)
  • TEXT- Only good for real short answers
  • IN MY SHOP- Great, when conditions allow
  • IN YOUR SHOP- Great, when conditions allow

How Much?

  • $45 for 60 minutes. Choose one or serval hours at a time.
  • You don't have to use your time all at once. I use a low tech app to keep track of your remaing time.
