Turning Projects with Richard Raffan
There's no end to the splendid variety of useful objects you can turn once you see Richard Raffan at his lathe. In this DVD, you'll learn to select the wood species best suited for a wide variety of turning projects. Raffan shows you how to manipulate skews, gouges and parting tools to produce the whole repertoire of wood-turning cuts, and how to recognize the structural aspects of a project as it develops on the lathe. Raffan also shows you how to sand and apply finishes and waxes, and he offers important safety tips throughout the tape. Among the projects Raffan shows you how to turn are hollow vessels, bottle coasters, spatulas, mallets, small bowls, and beads.
