Welcome back to News 7 Mornin'. This morning Steve Pardon has been telling us about The Blue Ridge Wood Turning club that meets at Craig County High School. As you saw earlier, wood turning isn't just making legs for coffee tables and stools. Advanced turners can make vases, pens, bowls and even cow boy hats. That type of craftsmanship doesn't come cheap though, quality turned items can cost hundreds of dollars depending on the type of wood. Later on News 7 Mornin, Steve will talk to a professional wood worker and some Craig County High School Students about their love of the lathe.
