I am very sad to announce the passing of a good old friend and well known woodturner. Many of you here would know Bob Hamilton from his very informative turning videos on U-Tube. The turning community will miss this man for sure. Fortunately for us, he will live on in his videos.

They say you die twice: first when your heart stops and then the last time someone speaks your name. Bob Hamilton will be with us for a while yet.

Bob will be missed. I watched his videos every chance I got, and learned a lot. He may be gone from this place, but will be welcomed into the beyond of woodturner space and time.
