The AAW has kicked off a new opt-in program called Woodturning Fundamentals. The intent is to provide a source for basic skills and techniques in the months when the American Woodturner magazine is not published. This new program is available to any AAW member.
The first issue was recently delivered to the subscribers and there is some good information included. There is a tutorial on sharpening the skew, an article by Nick Cook on Twenty Ways Not to Turn a Bowl, a video tip by Beth Ireland on a quick trick to find the center of your turning stock, Q&A from an AAW member on food safe finishes and a link to a safety video series created by the Mid-South Woodturners Guild. Here is one of their safety videos:
The Woodturning Fundamentals are another benefit of membership in the AAW. The cost of membership in the AAW is very reasonable. You can get more information on Woodturning Fundamentals and AAW membership here.
