Synopses & Reviews
Two of the countrys leading woodturners, Nick Agar and David Springett, have collaborated to produce this new and exciting book. Together, they have developed a novel approach to woodturning using thin, narrow planks of wood (usually of little use to woodturners) to produce hollow, twisted vessels. This turning method is described in detail and there are 14 designs, each accompanied by fully illustrated step-by-step instructions plus an inspirational gallery. Nick Agar also describes how he uses his highly original decorative methods and artistic skills to complete the finished vessels. This is a fresh and exciting approach to woodturning that creates modern, dynamic pieces.
