What a great experience! Guy is a super personable, passionate, and knowledgeable teacher. Everything we hoped for and more. We entered his studio knowing nothing, and left with a really awesome bowl that we will treasure forever. Highly recommend!

Wood turning is something everyone should try once in your life. The taking of a block of rough wood from a newly felled tree into a piece of functional art is truly transformative. Guy takes you there step by step with his easy soft spoken teaching and gentle guidance. Guys shop is comfortable and well set up for teaching this craft. From picking your own wood to finishing it all is there and ready for you. His stories and experiences add great color to the day. This is a can’t miss opportunity when you are visiting Maine. - Peter

We had so much fun working with Guy! He was an excellent teacher—super patient, funny, and a great storyteller. We had no prior experience and Guy made sure we felt comfortable taking part in every stage. Our bowl is so beautiful and we can't wait to show it off. We learned so much and are looking forward to the next time we can take a wood working class. Would definitely recommend this experience.

The education and experience my son and I had will be a lifelong memory. Guy was great! He was a very good teacher, encouraging and very patient. He has vast knowledge in wood turning and a very well equipped work shop. The final product came out beautiful. We made a bowl from a block of elm, and it will be a centerpiece in our home forever. I highly recommend this workshop. On a side note Guy makes some excellent Blueberry Jam. He had some for sale in his shop. I wish I would have got more!

Guy is a phenomenal instructor. He is kind, personable, knowledgeable and a story teller while weaving in learning lessons. Highly recommend Guy and you leave with an awesome product. - David

First-time wood turning experience, but Guy got me hooked! He is so pleasant, welcoming, and full of knowledge. The finished product is the best keepsake I could imagine taking home from this trip. Guy's woodshop was a place I wanted to stay all day long. - Ryan

Had an absolutely amazing time turning wood with Guy in his beautiful workshop. First off the place is stunning and the entire shop is solar powered (he basically built and fitted the entire place himself) and it was only up from there. Guy was attentive, fun, smart, and a great teacher. We had so much fun and learned a ton during our experience and walked away with a beautiful lathed bowl that's one of a kind. I'll never forget it! Highly highly recommended.  - Alex

My wife and I had a wonderful time with Guy. He really made it a hands-on experience for both of us and let us make the choices on what and how we wanted things to look. He really explained the process well and assisted when needed. We love our bowl. It’s a piece of work we will forever cherish. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone interested. - Lucas

I really enjoyed this experience! Guy really lets the guest set the pace-design the bowl, do the work, ask questions and feel comfortable. He teaches you about the background behind word working and really makes you feel like you are laying a foundation. Not just making a one time wheel. 10/10 recommend.  - Danielle

We did Guy’s bowl making experience for a fun date on a rainy day! We ended with a beautiful bowl that is now a centerpiece on our table. He was very patient with us and let us do it all ourselves but he also stepped in at hard spots so we wouldn’t ruin it. Great experience that I would highly recommend!  - Sarah

This was a very fun hands on learning and making experience! Guy was so patient with us and very knowledgeable, we loved learning about his practice and sharing in it with our own bowl making. He has an extra special collection of puns to share which we loved as well. Thanks so much and we hope others will take a turn!  - Diana
