hello Dick hi all
thank you for the news ;;-)
yes i am aware of the AFTAB activities
i am a member of their forum where you can see very nice and arty turnings.
Like us , they give very good advice , with an encouraging attitude,the words written are always nice and the few rants i've read mostly finished with gentleman agreements
they are really into hollowing,burning,texturing,using off-center chucks, but also (like woodturning magazine)they like old tools , rare wood essences++
plus the french touch with long talks on interpreting the works..////

here the link
