    i’m argentine woodturner

  13. Bonjour
    Maintenant que vous ne craignez plus de tourner des boules, pourriez vous nous en tourner une qui soit segmentée.
    J’ai par ailleurs une difficulté avec votre bande son, votre sono est toulours en double !
    Merci beaucoup pour vos différentes prestations.
    Français habitant à Mauritius

  14. vous etes tres bon et tres sympapathique, même pour un tourneur, c’est pas négligeable

  15. bernard caine says:

    thanks for lesson you could also make this into a nice posh letter opener.
    could you do some sheer scraping videos and any home made tools you have made to do this

    • Alan says:

      I think for a letter opener I would have to more the secondary axes another notch outward. this would make the result more flat. It would be worth a try and avoid using a sander.
      I’ll see what I can do about more tools and techniques.
      Thanks for commenting.

  16. bernard caine says:

  19. bernard caine says:

    thanks for the videos and all the tips. I enjoyed the doughnuts but thought what a waste of beautiful wood.That wood would have cost a lot of money in england. keep em coming thanks again

    • Alan says:

      Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do with a difficult piece of wood. I have several pieces that I don’t dare cut into. Now that is a waste also.
      You’re welcome. Thanks for watching and commenting.

  22. Alan Wesley says:

    Many thanks for your videos, I know I will learn a great deal from you, so keep them coming.

  23. Richard Katzman says:

    Alan, I watch your videos all the time and I’m amazed at your creative nature and the outstanding quality. My wife bought me a small lathe for Christmas. Not an expensive lathe, 8×12 at Harbor Freight. Good for pens and small items. Not sure what I can do with it as being a novice. I haven’t used it yet because winter is still alive and well in New York. I did buy a face shield to start with. My creative endeavors are creating flies for fly fishing but I have wanted to try wood turning for a long time. You can view my videos on You Tube by searching Richard Katzman. Thanks for all your pointers.

  24. Ed Austin says:

  35. Charles P. Auger says:

    Hello Alan. I’m glad to have found your website. I have recently purchased a new lathe, and I’m in need of guidance and most of all knowledge. I found your site through another wood turner, Mike Waldt. I stand ready to be taught, teach away.

  36. Mark Hazlewood says:

    Hi Alan, I’ve followed you on YouTube for quite a while and finally jumped to your web site. I’m looking forward to more good stuff from you.
    Been turning for a year (±) and learning lots with every video.

    • Alan says:

      I guess welcome is not quite the right word since you’ve been following me on YouTube.
      But since I cannot find a better one, Welcome.
      Thank you
      Alan Stratton

  37. Fernando says:

    Hi Alan.

    After seeing your Youtube channel, I decided to sign up for your website. It’s really nice the way you present each topic. Thank You

  38. Ron Freshour says:

    I enjoyed your presentation at the Willamette Woodturner’s Club this past week. I was sitting in the front row and got a good view. Now, it is nice to review the turning on AsWoodTurns.com.

  39. Bill Leary says:

    Looking forward to your videos. I enjoy watching your well presented and creative work

  40. NORM says:

    Last night at our local club (LLW,Springfield,IL) we had a segmented bowl/vessel presentation by a totally blind member. He’s one of our better turners and has even demonstrated at some of the bigger shows nationally. In one of your future Saturday events you might venture into segmented items with mixed colors (species) or open “gaps”. You might also show the idea of using a drill press as a vertical clamp, especially with a bungee cord or extended bar for natural weight to provide pressure.

    • Alan says:

      Norm, all great suggestions. I love both mixed wood and open segment projects. I had not thought of a drill press as a clamping tool.
      Thank you

  41. Phil Jacobus says:
