Woodturning pages below

The skew is the most unforgiving woodturning tool, but also the most predictable. Therefore once you understand and know how to present and manipulate the skew properly, fear will be be displaced by pleasure and confidence.

In this 3-hour DVD Mike explains, demonstrates, and demystifies every aspect of the skew. You'll understand why the skew catches, and while this DVD doesn't promise to entirely eliminate catches from your repertoire, you'll have far fewer.
