Your seminar and your passion for finish carpentry are an inspiration to me. I would like to thank you for devoting your time and effort to teaching and let you know how much it is appreciated. - Dan Stone, Hemlock Builders
Because of one tip I learned at Gary Katz' Door Hanging Seminar, my door-hanging production time has been slashed! Slashed production time means higher margins! This show was well worth my investment! - T.J. Manarite, Manarite Building & Remodeling
We physically had to kick the contractors out of here because Katz had a plane to catch. We had over 100 contractors and also offered it to our employees who had time to watch. People were spellbound! - Gary LaChance, Dunn Lumber, Seattle, WA
I can tell you, from the countless hours of reading his books, being there live is just a better version. The difference is that you can "see" what Gary presents in his books. This was very informative when he was using the Collins Coping Foot. Watching Gary use the tool put it all together. The instructions are very good, but you really get a sense of "how" to use the tool when you see it being done. - Mark Rich, Elite Concepts
Months after Gary visited our yard, we are still hearing buzz from our contractors. Gary told us that when a contractor learns a new skill, that makes them a better craftsmen, and they always remember where they learned it. Our customers are still talking about the techniques they learned at the Katz Roadshow. The show works! - Michael Siewers, Siewers Lumber and Millwork, Richmond, VA
After thirty years, I'm tired of finish work. The Katz Roadshow gave me a new interest in enjoying it! - Tim Call, Call Construction
Great information and tips. This was my second time seeing Mr. Katz and I will go again and again! - Fred Burgers, Help Around the House
Informative! Better than expected! The Katz Roadshow makes a guy feel good about his profession! - Mike Boyts, Metzler Remodeling
I learned in one day what my former employers couldn't teach me in nine years! - Tyson Berndt, R3 Home Renovation
