Great for beginners.

Exactly what I was looking for-- a book for someone who knows nothing about turning but wants to learn.

It could not be better

Dennis Posted September 26, 2014
The DVD is excellent, produced as instructional video should be. The selection of angles and viewpoint, the use of close-ups, The lighting and the clarity of narration, all mark this DVD as most effective and highest quality. Baker effectively demonstrates every step and every technique required to become a woodturner.
