Woodturning Videos Plus Website Update

VHS Videos Available Soon: By popular request, we will begin offering our videos on pen turning and bowl turning in the universal VHS tape format very soon. So, if you or a loved one does not have a DVD player, you can watch our woodturning instructional videos on your TV with a standard VHS tape player. All of our future videos will also be available in VHS format, in addition to the popular DVD format.

New Library Additions Coming Soon: We will be loading several new articles into our free educational library in the next few weeks. For the first time, we will be adding some articles in Adobe PDF format. These articles will be available to read on screen, or you can download them and print them with your computer printer.

Detailed Photos Coming Soon: We're working on adding "clickable" detailed photos to many of the articles in our educational library. This will allow you to read the article with standard optimized photos and then click on any photos that you would like a larger and more detailed image of for further review. We will be adding these detailed photos to our website over the next few months, as soon as we can get all of the photos optimized in Photoshop.

Woodturning Videos Plus Blog: For our new subscribers, we have a free Blog/RSS feed on our website. You can keep up with any changes made to the website including new product releases, new additions or updates to the education library, e-zine mail out dates, special news and much more. It's easy to subscribe to our blog. For additional information on what a Blog is and how it operates, check out What is RSS?
