Starting Out Woodturning, DVD

Item #

Rating:
90% of 100

With its simple step-by-step approach, this Robert Sorby-led DVD aims to remove much of the mystique surrounding this popular craft. It tackles a wide range of subjects - including selecting wood, learning the lathe, using and caring for the basic tools and applying finishes- and guides viewers through three elementary projects-a bud vase, a goblet, and a bowl. Close ups and action shots make this a thoroughly informative companion for the beginning turner.

I bought a wood lathe, and I have an extensive background in machining, but that was with metal. I just wanted to refresh my memory on turning basics, and hopefully gain some tips on wood turning.
