Steve shares his talent with the community in hopes to inspire future wood turners. He does this through hands on demonstrations as well as instructing at his shop. Steve has a continuing relationship with Savannah College of Art and Design. He helps students develop their turning skills for their industrial design and furniture projects. Steve teaches at John C. Campbell folk school. Steve really enjoys the teaching process of working with beginners and younger students.
