    Signature Workshops are designed for intermediate/advanced level students. A firm grasp of proper tool techniques, tool use and sharpening techniques is required of all participants. If you are unsure if your current skill set is sufficient to benefit from a Signature Course, we’d recommend that you participate in a Woodturning 101 Woodturning Workshop prior to enrolling in a Signature Workshop. Doing so will better prepare you for the more advanced techniques and projects you will encounter in Signature Classes so that you don't feel like you're "in over your head".
    Marcus Reid is professional woodturner and furniture-maker based locally in Provo, Utah. Originally only doing flat work, he had the good fortune just after he graduated from high school to begin a full-time apprenticeship with master furniture-maker Chris Gochnour in Salt Lake City. This led several years later to working in another small high-end custom furniture shop in Utah where he soon discovered, out of necessity, an aptitude for production spindle turning. He spent several years there as the shop's production turner before opening his own shop, still doing custom production work as well as artistic turning and furniture. He has been a demonstrator at the Utah Woodturning Symposium as well as for woodturning clubs in Utah.
