 Although initially well received, we had numerous requests for additional detailed information on some of the construction techniques and methods which we were not able to film during the actual 3 day hands-on class. We have recorded another 1 hr 42 min Supplemental DVD showing detailed construction methods and are happy to include it at no extra charge. 

The total playing time is now up to 4 hrs and 32 min.

Chapter titles for the supplemental Disk are:

 ōTips Tricks And Methods   ōCompound Angles ōStaved Base- How To Cut And Glue + A Refresher On Fine Tuning Your Saw Setup ō Making And Fitting The Bottom/Mounting Block  ō Making Diamonds/Falling Boxes  ōMaking Dot Flowers ōMethods For Sanding The Rings Flat For Gluing ōCutting Wedges

 Iíve also added some additional drawings and an easier to follow cut list for your PC. If you have any questions, please donít hesitate to write ronbrown@coolhammers.com

What our customers are saying about the Version 2.0

Bob Y., Texas writes "Thanks for the update!!  The more I go through the disks, the more I am amazed at how much info you guys have included.  You have done a phenomenal job with this DVD set.  After finding the other info on the feature rings in the addendum disk, I really think I will give it try from scratch in my garage."

Jack R., Virginia said, "This up-dated DVD is right up there with the quality information, and educational product that you are so well known for. The time taken to go into detail and explanations was well done. Great Job! As you know in a previous email I wasn't happy with the original product and you issued a refund. I had a complaint and you handled it in a timely and professional manner. Doing so, showed me the professional business person you are. That being said, I am sending back to you the $ 29.99 refund that you issued previously.

It is a pleasure doing business with you and will look forward to your new products when they come out."
