Dave Trull with the Trull Gallery ("The Fine Art of Furniture Making", as he says at the end of every video) has provided several wonderful visual guides to basic lathe technique. Use these as reference - watching these does not count as instruction as far as i3Detroit's wood lathe is concerned. Speak to Ross about using the wood lathe before using it for the first time. It is a slightly different machine than Dave uses in the videos and you need to know what those differences are.
