The Grand River Woodturners Guild joined up with The Geek Group to host this very special presentation from this revered woodturning artist. We see Alan use a selection of lathe tools to turn a very thin spindle from maple.

Alan briefly talks us through safety procedures at the lathe and the merits of sharp woodturning tools. Then we see the entire process of turning a goblet from start to finish. The whole video is jam packed with woodworking tips and techniques!
