New Site

Feb

Due to the vulnerablities in the old site software, leading to a number of hacks, I have moved everything to a new CMS - Drupal. Things should be a lot more secure now, and we should have no more issues !

Kurt Hertzog

Jan
04

A site I have recently discovered is that of Professional woodturner Kurt Hertzog.

I had origionally contacted Kurt to ask to host his version of a Sea Urchin ornament article, But Kurt kindly offered to let me link directly to his main site.

Kurt enjoys the continuum of woodturning from making his own turning tools to photographing his finished turnings. He keeps his turnings diverse in an effort to explore fully the craft and the medium. As frequent demonstrator and instructor on all facets of woodturning, he particularly enjoys teaching tool sharpening, workholding, and advanced penmaking.

Kurt is a regular feature columnist for Woodturning Design Magazine

Kurt’s site is well worth a visit for the wealth of interesting and informative articles, and the inspiration of the gallery sections.
