Re: What are your woodturning lessons learned?

Jim Barbour
When asked how one might become a master turner Rude Osolnik always responded "stand at a lathe", which encapsulates much of what is in this very interesting discussion.

But perhaps the best lesson ever came from my grandfather, a farmer, blacksmith, Raleigh Products salesman, surveyor, father of ten children, and the person to whom the local dentist sent patients to get teeth extracted. I can still hear him saying "experience is a dear teacher, but only a fool has no other", which captures most of the rest of what we all learned one way or another.
