Disclaimer: The techniques shown here are representative of the way that I work.
I have highlighted certain Health and Safety points throughout but responsibility
lies solely with the person who is carrying out the woodturning. Always adhere to
safe working practices at all times. Remember the more fingers that you lose, the
harder it becomes to turn wood!
