Woodturning Tutorials
After dabbling with Pen Turning recently we have added 4 guides on using the various types of Pen Kits from Rotur to our tutorial section.
Pot of Gold Tutorial
Another one of Ed’s projects has resulted in his “Pot of Gold”. An interesting effect inspired by a demo from BJ Norman at The Garden of England Woodturners club.He has revised his method a few times and the result was the item you see to the left.You can read it here.
If you would like to see the results of the various stages of the development of this process you can see them on our Facebook page.  You will also see many more of Ed’s creations such as this Horse Chestnut Burr Hollow Form.
