New Video Series Tells Stories of Woodworkers and Their Tools

The following content is syndicated content.

Last summer, at the International Woodworking Fair, I was shown a couple of the videos that would make up a new produced by Tormek . Each video features a different artist, work, their working environment and a few tips from the artists. I really enjoyed them. I was instantly struck by the the artist’s impressive work, the beauty of the settings and the quality of each video. We’re very pleased to share some of these videos with you.

As you might expect, the common thread that connects these artists is that they all use tools with blades that require frequent sharpening and all of them use Tormek sharpening system. To Tormek’s credit, the tools take a back seat to the artists work and I found useful tips in all of the videos.

Many of this first series of videos features Swedish speaking artists and subtitles, which I found a little tough to follow – not because I can’t follow subtitles, but because the settings and work are so interesting that I didn’t want to turn my attention to the text. I found myself watching some of the videos a second time to catch up with the subtitles.

    Hi George, I’m very interested in starting an engraving business but I’m
    just wondering how you get customers, what is the most common
    project/interface in demand and, to put it simply, is it a way to make a
    living? Michael.

    that’s not true at all. it comes down to how deep and how detailed you
    want. for just lettering and what not you put power to 100 and speed to 5
    and change your DPI and it will do it just fine… takes a while though BTW
    it’s a 60 watt
