If you have ideas or thoughts, please send them to me. I want this to be a free, web-based reference tool for those who are new to ornamental turning. I don't like sites with pop-ups, or which track the user for whatever nefarious reasons, so you won't find that here.
Notes that could help make this better would be greatly appreciated (and will probably be added). And, if you don't agree with what is presented here, kindly send me a note and I'll consider your thoughts. I can be contacted at OTBookOfKnowledge @ Gmail.com.
I hope you find this information useful. And, thank you to all those who have provided information and images for use on this site.
With kindest regards,
