Happy New Year from Steve and Marjorie Russell

Steve & Marjorie Russell

Welcome to all of our new U.S. and International subscribers and thank you for joining us! This is the fourteenth edition of Lathe Talk, a free monthly newsletter (e-zine) for subscribers of Steve Russell’s “Woodturning Videos Plus” woodturning website. This newsletter will be delivered on or about the first of each month to the email address you indicated on your sign-up form. Back issues of this newsletter are available here to subscribers.

Lathe Talk will offer tips and tricks to make your woodturning easier and more productive. I’ll also show you ways to save money in your studio, so you can stretch your hard earned money. In addition, we will periodically offer subscribers only specials on our videos and e-books. If you like this e-zine, please do a friend and me a favor by forwarding it to them. If a friend DID forward this to you and you like what you read, please subscribe by visiting our subscription page.

Woodturning Videos Plus January Update

Studio Update: We've been busy in the studio recently doing a bit of remodeling. After almost thirteen years of turning professionally, I've finally taken the time to remodel the studio and add some much needed storage space and cabinets. You never have enough storage space, but I've got lots more now, so I'm a happy camper. I just have to figure out where to put everything now!

Link Request: If you belong to a woodturning club or association, please consider asking your Webmaster to add a link to our website's free educational library. There are currently 21 articles in the library, covering beginner to advanced topics. Please help us to share this valuable learning resource with other turners in your woodturning clubs, associations, or on your own website links page.

The direct link to our educational library is shown below:
