Welcome to our Tips, Articles and Videos page. Here you will find information that will help you become a better turner. The “Tips” are short articles or charts that will be useful to you.  “Articles” are in depth articles that I have written for club newsletters or for American Woodturner, the Journal of the American Association of Woodturners. The videos are provided so you can see techniques up close just like you were attending one of our classes.

Here is our latest article from the April 2019 issue of the American Woodturner, The Sensational Skew, Simplified.


More pictures galleries and videos are located on the different Fiber Tools pages.
