Turning Boxes with Richard Raffan

Turning Boxes with Richard Raffan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although there are some books on turned projects, there have been none devoted solely to turned boxes. That is up until now. This informative book is for woodturners interested in adding new skills and ideas to their work through the turning of boxes. This project book begins with basic design considerations and the tools and equipment needed. The projects range from simple boxes to the more involved and challenging.

Readers will find:

-- Detailed illustrations and shop photos with thorough explanations of the tools being used.

-- Special sections on decorative techniques, like inlay and finishing.

-- Helpful tips for selling boxes.

-- Basic design considerations for turning on a lathe.

Synopsis:

Richard Raffan reveals the tricks and tips a woodworker needs to know when turning boxes — from the cutting and seasoning of wood to finishing the piece. Now improved with color photos, Turning Boxes includes detailed instructions for turning each part of the box, as well as variations. Woodworkers will learn how to turn both basic and more challenging boxes.

Synopsis:

New revised and updated edition.
