Meet Your Instructor
My name is Steve Maxwell, cabinetmaker, award-winning how-to instructor, and the creator and instructor for this course and many others I've created over the years. Since 1988 my articles, photos and videos have appeared in publications such as Canadian Contractor magazine, Mother Earth News, Cottage Life, Homes & Cottages magazine and many others. I’m also a home designer and builder.
I live on a rural island in Canada – Manitoulin Island – and for 30 years I’ve lived everything I teach in my courses. There’s no big publishing company behind my work, just me and small team of people who bring these courses to the internet. I've made it my goal to create some of the most detailed nd effective online information products about hands-on living in the world. If there are better courses out there on wood finishing, I’ve never seen them. Enroll risk-free and see for yourself. 30-day money-back guarantee.
