Woodturning Videos Plus April Update

Recent Demonstrations: On April 4th – 6th, the Lone Star Woodturners Association had a booth at the annual Woodworking Shows tool show. I demonstrated turning wooden dowel bottle stoppers and small bowls on a Jet mini lathe. I was great to meet many of my Lathe Talk subscribers at the show. Thanks to everyone for stopping by our club booth and introducing yourself!

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 libraries. There are currently 21 articles in the main library and 22 articles in the tips library, covering beginner to advanced topics.
