- Look elsewhere Review by Les
The DVD is clearly for a beginner. Having said that, I think Mr. Shanesy clearly shows he is not a very good turner. His tool selection is weak at best and his turning technique looks amateurish. He is not a good model for someone interested in getting into spindle lathe work. There are a number of excellent intros to spindle turning on the market and I would advise an interested person to look elsewhere. Try Ernie Conover's DVD on the very same topic.

- Great Content . . . Amateur Production Review by Wayne Stiles
This is a great DVD to introduce beginners to the art of turning on a lathe. Steve gives basic instructions on a variety of common projects, and he demonstrates basic turning skills, including the proper way to sharpen chisels. My only gripe is that the production quality is amateur (most notably, in the different levels of audio for various scenes). Otherwise, a fine introductory DVD for turners.
