Woodturning with burled wood -- safely.

For my TV show we took the cameras to Vince Way-Nee's shop where he told us his story about the demanding but satisfying hobby of turning burled wood.

Take note of his dust protection system. He has a full face mask with a cotton skirt around it and a filtered air pump on his back. This feeds cool clean air to his face all the time in a dusty environment, especially important since much of the wood he turns has "beauty marks" made by fungus.

Vince no longer has a web site but you can find him on Facebook.
