Do you want to build learn basic woodworking, or build shop cabinets, but don't know where to start? I've been doing woodworking for over 30 years and have been designing and building shop cabinets for the last 4 years, and I love to share my learning with others. If you are just starting woodworking and don't know where to begin, I've got some great starter projects for you to work on that require a minimum of skills and tools. Most of my lessons are online via the Takelessons interface, but if you live near Lexington, KY, I'd be glad to teach you in my shop. My specialty is in designing and building shop cabinets quickly and efficiently. If you would like to design and build shop cabinets or custom drawers for a storage space that you would like to better utilize, you've come to the right place! If you or your child would like to learn basic woodworking (esp. during this COVID season), I would be excited to help you. Please send me a message if you have any questions.

I want you to enjoy crocheting! Let's smile, make jokes, and learn a new hobby together! After your initial lesson you will have a grasp on basic stitches. From there, I will help you develop your crochet skills so you can venture out and begin creating for yourself or for gifts! Nothing beats a hand-made gift!

After each lesson, I will give you a small assignment to work on that will help you develop. I will let you lead the pace. Crocheting is fun and should never be stressful!

About Melissa

Cory has been working with my 12 year old. He taught her to sight read and is helping her widen her vocal range. She has made so much progress since she started working with him. We are very pleased. I highly recommend him!
Alexis K.
Cory is masterful at what he does. We love how he has catered his lessons to our son's level of experience. He has also inspired such confidence in our son's performances. Cory is a music talent we feel so fortunate to have found. Our 10-year old son always so excited for his lessons and his "homework." They definitely have a special musical connection that we hope continues to grow.

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills.

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …
