Woodturning Videos Plus October Update

We've Just Added A New Video Tips Library: This is our third free educational resource library for woodturners. Our video tips library will feature short video clips on selected woodturning topics, as well as skill set demonstrations and miscellaneous tips and tricks.

Our first video tips include a 75 second video on using dedicated shear scraper to shear scrape the exterior of a bowl and an 85 second video on using a traditional round nose scraper to shear scrape the interior of a bowl prior to sanding. We will be adding numerous video tips in the near future, so check back often for the latest additions.

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?
