Hello, my name is Craig Schmidt and I would like to welcome you to my site, Woodturning Expressions.  This site is dedicated to the art of woodturning.  I got started turning 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.
