Woodturning Videos Plus Website Update

We have now added pictures to the articles in our education library, so drop in and get your free copy of the updated articles. We will be adding several new articles to the library in the next few weeks, so be sure to check them out when you next visit the website.

We’re still working on getting video onto the website and trying to figure the best way to incorporate video clips into the library and in other areas on the website. Additionally, last month we began offering periodic discount coupons and we will be offering gift certificates very soon.

As we add new products and resources to the website, we will let you know each month here in Lathe Talk. We have lots of things that we will be adding to the website to make it a valuable resource for woodturners around the world. If you have any specific requests, please let us know.
