Woodturning, and all woodworking, is inherently dangerous. Many of the demonstrators at this symposium are professionals to some degree and can perform their tasks safely. Though you may see certain techniques performed on this site, that does not mean it is safe for you to perform. Safety is ultimately your responsibility. If you do not accept full responsibility for your actions, please do not use this site.
Demonstrations are for educational purposes only. If you try these methods on your own, do so carefully. Do not perform anything you are not comfortable or experienced in performing.
