Videos are a wonderful way to learn more about woodturning and we have created a new section here on our homepage to showcase our featured video each month.
We all love the Tim Yoder PBS woodturning show on TV.
Since the show is no longer in production (but past episodes still air around the country), Woodturning Online has partnered with Tim Yoder to bring you new
free video segments that answer turning questions we are often asked...
right here on Woodturning Online!
So if you have any questions of tips, email us and we will pass them on to Tim!

Featured Turning Article
As Chestnut Goes, Ash Follows a Hundred Years Later by Dan Cassens
In 1904 Chestnut blight from Asia was brought to the eastern United States and by the 1940s it had spread throughout the entire range of the species. A very valuable timber species was lost and the lumber from reclaim operations is highly sought after today.
Reclaimed ash and chestnut lumber are sometimes confused, perhaps because they have both been attacked by a deadly Asian import.
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), also from Asia, was discovered in Southeast Michigan in 2002. Since then it has spread to 20 states.
Read the rest of Dan's article to learn the current status of this issue and the positive steps being taken to solve this problem.
Easy change jaw systems for woodturning chucks are all the rage these days. With change times in the 30 second range, using a chuck will never be the same again.
Teknatool has spent 3 years developing their system. So, it's a serious investment of time and money. And this quick change system is compatible with their existing chucks so you can easily upgrade your chuck thereby reducing the entry price!
If you want to look into the face of the future, check out this system! They will be available for purchase on January 1, 2014.
