    I read those, I agree for the most part but there are a few statements I disagreewith. But all in all it is an interesting read.

    Thanks for posting.

    A very interesting read. The book mentioned, Keith Rowley's, "Woodturning: A Foundation Course", Is this really that good of a book for the beginner to buy?

    Over here it's more or less required reading for anyone wanting to start turning wood.

    Thanks Pete for the advise. I really don't know anyone that turns well enough to start with basics with me so I'll get the book and see what I can figure out on my own. I know I can get LOTS of help here with the family.


    UPDATE:

    Found it on Half.com for $11.00 new and have it coming!! Thanks again!

    Royall,
    I'll also heartily recommend Bill Grumbine's videos if you dont' have them on your shelves already.

    Royall, my parents got this book for me when I first started. It sits next to the bed now. Everytime I go to bed frustrated with something I couldn't do on the lathe, I thumb through it. I always sleep well after because I've just read how to do what I couldn't do. Great book to reference!

    Jeff, you are truelly in the vortex. I admit that I sometimes do the same thing.
