How-To videos

Brian McEvoy is famous around the world both for his skill at a lathe and as a teacher of woodturning; his latest DVD expresses both beautifully.

Creating two-piece hollow forms was a project only advanced turners would tackle – until now.

Brian, along with co-host Gordon Langer, walks you through the process by providing clear, logical and easy to follow instructions, starting with a yellow block of raw wood right through to sanding and applying the finish. At the risk of giving away the farm, Brian freely reveals all his secret tips and special techniques so you too can create stunning works of art. 

Benefit from McEvoy’s years of experience as he reveals how to correctly position the body so as to increase tool control and prevent back strain while working. For viewers new to the lathe, McEvoy provides tips for mounting objects and making different cuts.

A photo gallery of his personal collection will fuel the fire for artists looking to bring out the natural beauty in wood.
