The Wood Turning Bible Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This hardcover book with internal spiral binding is 6.5in x 8in, a perfect size for carpenters and woodturners to keep near their lathe for quick access.The design of this book allows it to lay open flat, which allows for easy and frequent reference, and the interior photographs, illustrations and diagrams, make the learning process simple and fun for beginners, and provides useful tips for more advanced readers.

The attraction of woodturning as a hobby is that the results are almost instant: with a few basic tools and a lathe, simple items can be produced very quickly. There are three distinct parts to woodturning: sharpening, turning, and finishing. Woodturning can engage hand, head, and heart at the same time.

Master every technique you need to create a wide range of projects with The Woodturning Bible. Learn to select the right types of wood and get the best mix of tools; how to plan designs with sketches and models; set up your lathe and start work; how to troubleshoot through unexpected weaknesses and knots in the wood; and how to bring the perfect finish to your designs.

Synopsis:

The Woodturning Bible is a fully illustrated technical reference with 16 inspiring projects. It's the perfect addition to any professional or hobby woodshop.
