Video on Wood Chucking

Here is a video produced by the Gwinnett Woodworkers of my demonstration on how to hold wood on the lathe. I hope you find it useful. Click here to view or download.

This project took several days to prepare, video and edit. Thanks to Bob Brokaw for the idea and production management, Jim Myrick for the expert videography, John Eaton for the superb editing, and Rob Austin for the use of his shop and assistance. Rob Austin's shop is large enough to be a TV studio! We got to use his 50" TV hanging from the ceiling in the middle of his shop as a teleprompter!

When I was approached about doing this I thought it would take a lot of effort - and it did. But it was fun. Also, it was another another opportunity to practice for a similar presentation for the Classic City Woodturners, Athens, GA.

The goal is for these GWA YouTube videos to attract more younger visitors to Gwinnett Woodworkers.
