about

I teach woodworking and craft custom woodworks for discerning clients. If you are interested in learning about woodworking, I invite you to visit the North Carolina Furniture School. If you would like to discuss a custom project, or you are interested in pursuing international scholarship; please email me at stuart@stuartkent.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
