Welcome to all of our new U.S. and International subscribers and thank you for joining us! This is the thirty-fourth 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 near the end of each month to the email address you indicated on your sign-up form. All back issues of this newsletter are available to subscribers here.

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.

Woodturning Videos Plus September Update

New Distribution Date: Due to my constantly evolving deadline schedule, Lathe Talk will now be published on or around the end of each month. The old middle of the month publication date is no longer possible, due to new production deadlines that occur in the middle of each month. Thanks for your understanding.

Lathe Talk Cartoon Update: Lathe Talk’s cartoon feature is in the works and will debut in the near future. I have been playing around with the design (one panel, three etc), style (traditional, manga etc) and some of the characters. I’ve also been looking at black and white, vs. colour panels and whether I want to freehand draw the cartoon, or use a tablet for a computer. This will all get finalized soon and we’ll be off and running.
