i recently applied for the Educational Opportunity Grand from the Front Range Woodturners here in Denver and was given a grant to take more turning classes. i am very excited to get this chance to take my turning to the next level. i am thinking that one of trent boschs classes would be great. any suggestions would be great also.

Congrats!!! Always a good thing to get paid to further your talents. Glad to hear that grants are given for things like this. Now if they only had some out here in Arizona.

Congrats again.

Congrats for furthering your education, you will never go wrong with that. Trifern took classes from Trent and said he did a great teaching job.

Good on ya, Roper!

AZ does offer scholarships and grants for cabinetry. Got any Hopi in your ancestry?
Some Jr. colleges offer reduced tuition for adults, also. (Maybe ya gotta be an old fart, tho) I think MCC does.
