Coaches are available, for lessons, problem solving, tool trials, or any other woodturning matter. They love to hear from newbies, experienced turners ... the whole lot. They each have debts to pay from the long time turners they learned from that they can only take care of by "paying it forward" . Feel free to contact them and set up a time. Coaching is normally done in the coaches shop.
Non-members interested in trying out woodturning one on one to see if it is of interest are welcome as well.
