Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chucks to Make for Woodturning gathers all the essential information about woodturning chucks and fixtures in one place for the first time, making it more accessible.  More than merely a reference for dedicated turners, this book is designed to help both beginners and advanced turners improve their skills and broaden the range of projects they tackle at the lathe, by presenting a carefully crafted combination of how-to advice and interesting, engaging projects. The book explains how to get the most from commercial chucks, centers, and faceplates. It also shows how readers can make their own - tailoring the wood-holders precisely to the work they want to do.

Synopsis:

People are drawn to the woodturning lathe because it is the quickest way to go from raw wood to a finished object. Most projects can be finished in an afternoon, and many can be completed in less than an hour. Unlike most woodworking machines, the lathe grips and whirls the wood while the woodworker attacks it with a hand-held chisel or gouge. This makes the chips and shavings fly into the air as the blank takes on its new shape. This is also what makes woodturning so much fun: simple machines, easy skills to learn, fast results.

Synopsis:

Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Turning features step-by-step descriptions for an abundance of wood turning techniques, including both spindle and faceplate methods. Over 900 color photos accompany detailed, hands-on instructions for turning wood, including how to use lathes, turning tools and materials, chucks, as well as sharpening tools.

About the Author

Clarence "Doc" Green, a retired community college professor with a Ph.D. in physics, is a member of the American Association of Woodturners and his local turning club. He is an active participant in two woodturning forums, "World of Woodturners" and "WoodCentral." Green has been a woodworker for more than 30 years, but turning wood only since 2004. In that time, however, he has thoroughly researched the field of woodturning and wood-holding techniques for the lathe. He is the co-author of The Theory and Servicing of AM, FM, and FM Stereo Receivers (Prentice-Hall, 1980) and the author of Technical Physics (Prentice-Hall, 1984).
