With only a few turning tools and a lathe, it's possible to create a host of useful and artistic objects. Part of the appeal of turning is that a turner - as opposed to a furniture maker or other classic woodworker - gets results quickly. In only a few minutes, the object takes shape on the lathe, and in a very short time the turner has a beautiful bowl or other turned project. This collection covers the tools and techniques needed to get started in turning and then offers up a range of turning projects in which to use them. The tools section includes all the basic turning tools, including chisels, scrapers, and gouges. The techniques section starts with the basics with turning for non-turners and moves through a variety of topics, including faceplate turning, tips for hollowing end grain, fixing turning mistakes, and finishing. Lastly, the projects, including pulls and knobs, pens, vessels, bowls, boxes, candlesticks, and furniture parts, cover a wide range of skill levels.
