Qus
Richard Raffin again shows us how it's done. What more can I say? His skill as a wood turner and his ability to convey that knowledge is marvelous to behold. While he may have a piece of wood crack or split while turning, he adeptly demonstrates that a potential porblem can be overcome. He turns problems that occur into opportunities for us, his students, to listen and learn how to fix them. He clearly shows the viewer that many problems or mistakes may be overcome. He shares a number of turning projects that are both basic and more advanced. This was an excellant and informative DVD that is well worth the money. I hope you enjoy it. God bless! Turn safely!

Needs more instruction to describe tool position and angles. Not very expensive but could be better for the novice.
