This is a video I made to promote my turning sales, but I think that my fellow woodturners and woodworkers will enjoy it as well.

Ooop! Almost forgot the disclaimer:

A great video production. I have been dying to see this one come out.

This is a good example of how creativeness flows from one discipline to another.

Just watched to again, you really captured the romance of turning. I feel like I am missing out on a great part of woodworking now since I don’t have a lathe.

Love the work…but what I really came away with is the desire for a bigger lathe! I know your disclaimer prevents me from blaming you but i’m going to do it anyway. I’m gonna be in S.F. in a couple weeks if the family wasn’t in tow i might have looked you up.

Well done video Brian. I should have seen the disclaimer a few years ago. 5 lathes later I think I have been bit. Thanks for posting.
