Default introduction and barley twists

Hello to all members of this forum !
My name is Iulian ,40 years old and I live in Romania.As I was looking for methods to make barley twists,I found this interesting forum about router and woodworking.
I hope to find and learn new methods and tricks here,as I'm relatively new to woodworking.
Speaking about barley twists,does anyone have the "Twists and advanced turning" DVD? Is it worth buying it?(does it have new methods or something good tricks ?)
Best Regards,

Hello Zurzan and welcome. I found a couple of interesting links on Barley Twists.
Learn to Turn Barley-Twist Candlesticks - Fine Woodworking Video
How to Turn a Single Barley Twist | Article | Woodworking

Hope this helps.
