Has anyone subscribed to this online website? I have seen some sample instructional videos and it seems pretty good. Thought about shelling out the cash for a subscription. My plan is to craft a round tripod table with a turned post, hand carved feet at the bottom, and a book matched tabletop cut round on the band-saw. I just don't have much flat work experience.

What do you all think? smiley=dankk2.gif

I check out my Dad's hard copies when I visit with him, but have not even looked at the site.  I suspect it is not much more than an online copy of the mag.  A few good articles, but not much for turners.  They do have some good plans and projects from time to time though.  If you're just looking for another source of inspiration, then it would probably be worth your time and the $'s it costs.
Cool

I have subscribed to their online site for years and do find it worth the money.

I subscribed to it when they first began publishing. Maintained my subscription for 10-15 years, learned a lot, back then they catered to high end work and technical expertise.  Thru the years they had to survive and began to "water-down" their articles to attract a more diverse group of readers.  Their online service does the same, give it a couple of years, you will learn, but then you will get bored and want more!   my two cents

I feel compelled to add a footnote to my above rant.  I hope I did not kill this topic by my negative comments.  As you can tell I was not pleased when they went to appealing to the masses.  I complained long and hard to deaf ears.  My good comment is along with the Rev. that you will be introduced to the many facets of woodworking.  You can then choose which dicipline you want to follow.  Be careful who you choose to me mentored by, the world is "full of professionals".....
