About Our Fine Woodworking School

Great projects, tremendous materials, and plenty of one-on-one instruction.

That’s the combination that makes my distance learning woodworking education so popular.

These are my furniture projects. I design them myself to ensure great proportions, pleasing lines and sound construction. Through my distance learning woodworking classes, you’ll learn the best furniture making construction methods. All of the woodworking projects are constructed with time-honored mortise-and-tenon and dovetail joinery. Most of all, besides learning new woodworking skills you’ll also create an heirloom piece of furniture.
