Multi Axis Spindle Turning: Further Exploration

 
 

"Though others have tried to explain how a piece of theirs was done using multiple axes, it is Barbara Dill who has begun to develop a systematic structure and vocabulary of the principle of mutli-axis turning upon which mental models can be constructed that enable outcomes to be predicted." -Charlie Belden, WoodCentral's Turning forum

"I think the reason the article was successful is because Barbara is asking us to THINK, and take something new and unfamiliar and actually use it without being told HOW to use it." -Keith Thompson, WoodCentral's Turning Forum

"Barbara....has lived, breathed, and dreamt multiaxis turning for years in order to become proficient and knowledgable. And, like so many woodturners, she willingly shares her knowledge and enthusiasm with fellow turners." -Betty Scarpino, Editor, The American Woodturner
