Hello, my name is Craig Schmidt and I would like to welcome you to my website This site is dedicated to the art of woodturning. I got started turning more than 10 years ago after taking a
3 day turning course at a local woodcraft store. My modest little studio is located in House Springs, Mo. I am a member of the Show Me Woodturners Club of Festus, Mo., www.showmewoodturners.com and
am currently run the club video equipment. I have served as President, Vice President and Secretary. I am constantly continuing to educate myself and learn different turning techniques and styles. I
love teaching others how to turn wood.
Please take a look at my gallery page to look at some of my current turnings.
If you are a woodturner or would like to get started please check out my "woodturning tips" and "my tools" sections.
I also teach at my studio. I do one on one classes that are set up based on the students current skill level and what they are interested in learning. I do classes on bowl turning, turning pens, ornaments and deep hollowing.
Thanks for visiting, please feel free to email me with any questions, comments or suggestions.
