Absolutely fabulous! Informative & a 'must have' dvd. Review by Bronwyn

Once again, Michael does not disappoint with the cab cutting dvd. I particularly appreciated the detailed explanation of the different cutting discs and I have just ordered my "Dopmaster" - quite an inexpensive but valuable tool which Michael describes in the video.

I would love to see Michael produce a stone carving video and how to make the two-toned metal that he uses in his jewelry.

Thanks Michael!
