Description

Woodturning – growing in popularity and fun to learn! It’s no wonder that woodturning is growing by leaps and bounds. It appeals to time-strapped woodworkers because you can turn out beautifully crafted objects in days rather than weeks and set up shop with minimal tools and materials. To start enjoying this satisfying craft, get Woodturning Basics, an instructional DVD – the perfect introduction to learning the ins and outs of turning. 

Learn as an expert walks you through the basics
. With over 20 years of turning experience, Mike Mahoney provides an informative overview of the techniques you’ll learn and projects you can build after taking this workshop. And, unlike a live class, this DVD allows you to go back any time and review all or any part of the demonstration.

Tools of the trade...tricks of the trade. This DVD answers your questions before you ask them. It familiarizes you with all the key elements of a wood lathe and how to assemble a basic kit of the most-used turning tools. You’ll also learn Mike’s secrets for keeping these tools razor sharp and in proper condition along with must-know techniques for drying and finishing your projects. 

Gorgeous projects you’ll be proud to call your own. Start by learning how to turn the most basic type of bowl to gain experience and confidence. Then move on to more advanced and artistic turning projects, including:

  • A natural-edge bowl that incorporates tree bark

  • A lidded box with perfectly matched grain

  • A stunning memorial urn turned from silver maple

  • An heirloom-quality pepper mill that’s built to last
