Speaking Engagements

Classes, presentations and more

If you are looking for a presenter that will enhance your professional or hobbyist trade show or event, please contact me to discuss your needs.

I have presented well received seminars at every IWF Atlanta, since 2008, at the NWFA annual Conference in 2016 and at TISE in 2017.

I have taught popular hand router, woodworking and CNC classes at Woodcraft Stores, and often present classes for woodworking clubs.

Whether providing technical information to benefit professional shop owners and managers, or presenting hands on demonstrations for hobbyists, I can help attract visitors to your convention booth or event.

Subjects that I can speak to include (but are not limited to) Lean Manufacturing Techniques for Custom Shops, Working with Plastics in the Woodshop, Social Media for Wood Manufacturers and Retailers,  and Online Content Marketing.

I can also present hands-on demonstrations on techniques such as inlay, stringing, sand shading, or other woodworking skills.

And if you need a personable, friendly and effective ambassador for your product, we should talk.


This video was taped live at the Hartville Tool Show in February 2018. This session was open to show attendees and vendors and focused on table saw optimization. I was also representing MICROJIG at the show, and utilized many of their products while performing this demonstration.

The folks at Hartville were kind enough to videotape the session and share it with me. I cobranded the video and posted it to my YouTube channel as well as on the Woodcademy Skill Building Videos page.
