Pat Carroll Interview:

Working as a builder/carpenter, woodturning was a craft I knew very little about before 2001. I had done some research and found a woodturner in my nearest town. Lucky for me, this woodturner was one of the finest turners in Ireland. Willie Stedmond, one of the founding members of the Irish Woodturners Guild, was giving night classes to which I attended a few. It is always my first advice to anyone interested in woodturning, get some lessons and join a club. I also did the latter and met some great people who helped and encouraged me along the way.

MtW: Herman deVriesHerman de Vries Interview:

I always wondered why someone would put up a home page. After all, it does seem a bit presumptuous (egotistical, maybe?) to think anyone would want to read about me, where I work and the hobbies with which I occupy my time. But when I thought about it, the ability to seek out others with similar interests and swap e-mail has been one of the most enjoyable uses I have found for the Internet. So, here I am, and I'd be delighted to hear from you if you wish to comment or correspond. I've answered literally hundreds of questions since I put this page up - I always answer my e-mail.

It’s not. In fact, once you learn the basic techniques of preparing and working with resin,  you’ll discover that it turns like butter and stunning results will have you thinking about your next project before the lathe has cooled down. 

From Keith Lackner, one of the leading resin woodturners today, Woodturning with Resin is a go-to guide for anyone who enjoys woodturning or is interested in getting started. With expert instruction and stunning photos, Woodturning with Resin takes you through the golden rules of preparing and curing resin for the lathe.  Also covered are the fundamentals of how turning with resin is different than turning wood, the best tools, grinds, and speeds to use, and how to achieve a finish that makes the resin sparkle.

Stewart Furini Interview:  
​Turning started as an occasional hobby, and has now become a major part of my life. From making a simple turned bowl, to creating a highly decorative piece, embellished with texture and colour, turning keeps my feet on the ground and gives me a wonderful creative outlet. It's a great counter-balance to my job as a teacher in a large comprehensive school.
