Here’s what Lynn Miller had to say about Joe’s Class…

Lynn Miller - Student from Akron, Ohio

“I want to thank you for all that I learned in your 5-day, one on one class. It was worth every dime I paid, and more. I thought I learned a lot in your 3-day class last year, but the 5-day is at the top of the heap. I am getting some carvings together to put up my own web site and go into business.”

Here’s what Rich Legarra from La Barge, Wyoming had to say about Joe’s Classes…

Rich Legarra - Student of Joe's from La Barge, Wyoming “Hi Joe, I just wanted to send a short note thanking you for everything you have done for me. First, for becoming a good friend, and second for helping me discover a passion I didn’t know I had. It all started with your beginning gunstock carving class which sparked an interest in carving that just continued to grow. You were always available to answer questions as well as critique my work. This aided my progress greatly. When the opportunity was there for me to take your advanced class, you helped me take my carving to the next level. The time spent with you during the advanced class was when I got to know you as a friend. I highly recommend to anyone who thinks they might be interested in carving wood or gun stocks to take your beginning class – it will ignite a fire. I also highly recommend the advanced class, it will take you to a new level. Again, I really appreciate all you have done and continue to do for me. – Rich Legarra
