As reviewed in The Australian Woodworker Issue 117

The Practice of Woodturning was Mike Darlow's first book. It proved immensely successful, both in Australia and overseas and its replacement The Fundamentals of Woodturning continues to help aspiring woodturners all over the world to learn not only the basics, but also many of the more elusive aspects of the craft.

When Mike recorded videos to accompany The Practice of Woodturning, they absorbed several tapes. Now, he has released this series in DVD format - a total of seven hours instruction on just two disks.

Close-ups, over-the-shoulder shots, and 860 seperate camera set-ups ensure you see exactly what to do.

Duration: 7 hours on 2 disks
