I am pleased to provide this brief commentary with regard to my recent ordering experience with TurnTex Woodworks in that it has reaffirmed my belief that family owned businesses and personal integrity is well and alive in America and the Republic of Texas.
I was referred to TurnTex Woodworks by numerous members of the American Association of Woodturning (AAW) and the International Association of Penturners (IAP) as being the definitive source of information, help and, of course, products dealing with the process of wood stabilization. I found a wealth of knowledge, and a store of quality products and merchandize in the form of Mr. Curtis Seebeck, owner and proprietor of TurnTex.
The WoodTurning World is varied and vast in size with numerous vendors and homegrown businesses clamoring for attention. Without regard to making a sale or not, Mr. Seebeck was able, based on my limited knowledge of wood stabilization, to provide me with information, product selections and reference material necessary to meet my needs and requirements. His primary obligation, and that of TurnTex, is to provide their existing and prospective customers with the correct information to make intelligent choices without regard to personal gain,
Would I return to TurnTex for additional supplies, information and guidance? You bet.
Would I refer TurnTex to my colleagues in woodturning with the assurance that they would receive honest and correct information and high quality products? You bet.
As far as Mr. Seebeck is concerned, I can only extend my best wishes for the continued success of TurnTex Woodworks and to a man whose personal work ethic is something we should all strive to achieve.
