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.
