Frank Howarth is a woodworker extraordinaire. He also takes great pride in his film making. Frank’s videos are always top-notch.
In his latest episode, he sets out to repair a turned platter that had warped over the years as it dried. I found the repair process interesting and informative. He actually cuts the thing in half, removes a strip, then replaces it with a segmented glue-up.
Then, with the plan of making this platter into a chip-and-dip server, he adds another segmented piece in the center to hold a bowl of salsa. I’ve only stuck my toe into the depths of woodturning, but I would’ve never even considered that a repair like this was possible.
WARNING: Frank has lots of big, beautiful tools in a big, beautiful shop. If you are one who is prone to fits of incapacitating tool envy, do not watch this video!
Finally, if you enjoy the stop-motion segments in this video, that’s just another thing that Frank excels at and you find a playlist of his stop-motion videos here.
