Class Information

I can also provide transportation to and from your hotel if needed.  Call me if you need me to recommend hotels in the area.

Advanced carving classes are also available on the following:
Scrolls, wildlife, turquoise inlays, cast ivory inlays, drop relief carvings, full relief carvings, names and brands.
The cost for these classes are $350/day.  (some classes are two days, others are four days).

If you already have a High Speed drill, please bring it to class, along with your burs.  If you do not have one, I can provide a drill for you free of charge, but you will need to buy your own set of burs to use in the class.
A set of twelve burs is $58 and I have them available at the class.

I can also show you where to get your own complete carving system.
Please call me for details.


You will be able to transform your rifles, shotguns and pistol grips into one-of-a-kind family heirlooms, collector’s item or a fancy showpiece.
