Taking Joe’s engraving class proved to be both educational and exciting.  I left the class with enthusiasm and confidence that “I can do this”.

I recently purchased and watched your instructional dvd's. What an inspiration. I can't wait to start carving my very first gun stock!

"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."

"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 gunstocks 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."

"Joe Cummings! He’s So Awesome!  I’ve been carving about a year but not without the help of some excellent teachers.

At the end of 2004, I had the opportunity of meeting Joe in the very first class he taught. What a great teacher. He is willing to go 200% or what ever it takes to help someone in or out of his classes. He helped me so much with that first class that I had to take another. I so respect and admire him. His patience is remarkable. I should know, he needed plenty with me.

If anyone is thinking of taking one of his classes you don’t have to think hard. His classes were the best time and money I’ve ever spent. He raised my carving passion to a totally new level.

Over the past year, I’ve gotten to know Joe as an awesome teacher and friend.

Thank you so much Joe!"
