“Classes starts Sept. 19th, Mon and Thurs evenings at Urban Lumber in Springfield.  I will be leading the class, with Ray coming to talk about voicing, and someone (not lined up yet) to come by and speak about frets as well. www.eugenesol.com

Tuition is $1150 including materials (a screaming deal) and the class is suitable for absolute beginners as well as people with some woodworking experience.  My teaching focuses on hand tools and planning; any large power tool work will be done on premises at Urban Lumber so they can watch the process of resawing, thickness sanding etc.”
