Helping woodworking companies do more
Ralph Bagnall, the founder of Consulting Woodworker and host of Amazon's Woodcademy TV, has been working in wood and plastics fabrication for nearly three decades. He began working with CNC machines in the wood shop back in the mid-1990s when G-code was still written by hand!
He spent several years selling CNCs and other woodworking equipment, as well as installing machinery and training operators, during which time he developed a deep knowledge of the process involved with acquiring equipment and integrating it into an existing shop.
His career path has allowed him the rare privilege of visiting numerous shops and manufacturing facilities all over the U.S., where he has had the privilege to work alongside skilled and creative woodworkers making all sorts of products in a wide variety of ways. His experience has led him to apply his knowledge to helping woodworking companies work better, faster and more efficiently, all the while maintaining the superior quality inherent in their product.
In addition to physical plant consulting, Ralph and his wife, Susan, have assisted many clients to reach new audiences, build branding and drive sales through implementing a variety of marketing methods. Their extensive experience in the woodworking and marketing fields place them in the unique position of delivering relevant messaging that resonates with a woodworking audience.
For nearly two decades, Ralph has been writing woodworking articles for national magazines, and is a frequent speaker at prominent woodworking venues including the International Woodworking Fair (IWF), National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) Show, and The International Surfaces Exhibition (TISE). He recently premiered as the host of Woodcademy TV, a new project on Amazon Prime teaching tips, tricks and techniques that woodworkers of all skill levels can apply in their home shops.
Ralph and Susan are available anywhere in the U.S. and abroad. Currently located in Southwest Florida, Ralph regularly travels to points across the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean.
