We’ve talked internally before about the fact that many of us are mesmerized by tutorial videos, even when we know nothing about the subject being demonstrated. I don’t know from woodworking, but I had a great time watching this five-part series on turning a hollow spiral candlestick on a router mill. Okay, so I might have skipped through some of it, but I did learn a lot. Now I want to make one of these candlesticks. Anybody got a Legacy Ornamental Mill handy?
