Topic tags/keywords: turning lathe video series tutorial

Here’s a link to the first of 8 (currently) video tutorials on various turning projects from Robert Sorby. The first one is titled ”Project 01 Robert Sorby Garden Dibber by Nick Cook”, and the following ones are numbered sequentially as Project 02 Robert Sorby…. , Project 03 Robert Sorby… , etc.
Of course these are showing Robert Sorby tools, but they do show detailed turning methods that would be beneficial to new turners in particular, but also to more experienced ones.
If you search a bit further, on the site, under Robert Sorby, there are more involved methods such as cutting threads available.
Have fun with it. Here’s the link to Project 01 . . .

I watched several of these last night, Nick Cook is one heck of a skilled turner. I like how he just gets on with it without excess babble.
