About the Artist
If you have ever searched "lathe" or "woodturning" on YouTube, you have probably watched a Carl Jacobson video. Carl has been uploading wood turning videos to YouTube since way back in 2007 and since then has amassed a collection of 249 videos. That's a lot of time and effort put into making free woodworking videos for everyone's enjoyment and education.
"If you'd said to me I was going to be a teacher someday, I'd have laughed. School was my worst subject, but I didn't realize how rewarding teaching could be. It's a great feeling when I get an email from someone that says I inspired them to try turning. The community of online woodworkers is so open, and has given me the motivation to continue to produce videos. Woodturning has become my favorite form of woodworking. I'm fascinated that you can take a raw piece of wood to the lathe, and an hour later have a beautiful finished project." - Carl Jacobson
