Demonstrations and Mini-Workshops

Interactive Remote Demos

Hear it.  See it.  Do it!


Covid-19 has changed the way we think about woodturning demos.


Besides complicating delivery, it has forced many clubs to rethink the whole process, including how to keep membership engaged.  Many clubs can't afford  available demos on their own, and partnering with others can get complicated.

I have invested n the technology necessary to provide you with the best seat in the house!  but my demos start at only $100, not as a replacement for demos from other world class professional turners, but as an affordable opportunity to offer a more robust program for their members in these challenging times.

Contact me for more information.

Here are a some clips from a demo to give you an idea of what you may expect. 

Something for Everyone!
