Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Spielman, one of the best known and most prolific woodworking authors...has created what may be the finest general book available on lathe-turning....[The book] consists of three general sections: Lathes and their uses; how-to projects from a variety of artists featuring jewelry, bowls, a birdhouse, chess pieces, and a handheld mirror; and a gallery of exceptional turnings. The excellent photographs and illustrations will inspire.”—Library Journal

Synopsis:

Thirty-one top lathe turners share their styles, preferences, and techniques. Personal biographies and philosophies of many turners, along with instructions on making select projects from each of their repertoires, allow you to create professional-looking pieces. Art blends with utility in objects like rolling pins, bowls, cutting boards, candlesticks, and earrings that make extraordinary visual treats.
