I read this today, printed in the newsletter of the Association of Pole Lathe turners. I don't really know exactly how I feel about it yet but, I can tell you, it isn't good.
While a few comments may be accurate, the general sense of the article reads super negative and dismissive to me. Plus that last paragraph makes my blood boil.
I would be interested to hear opinions on this as I am already writing a reply to this in my head.
I don't want the green wood world to be like that.
