In issue 290 of >Woodturning, we have lots for you to enjoy. In ‘Projects’

Stuart King gets ready for Easter with a lovely toy; Andy Coates makes a bowl for an absent friend; Colwin Way makes an oak candlestick; Walter Hall makes a kitless Ebonite rollerball pen; and Bob Chapman explains how he turned a decorative bowl.

In our ‘Technical’ section Richard Findley shows you how to reach sanding perfection; Philip Greenwood looks at finding the centre of timber; In an abridged extract from All New Turning Projects, Richard Raffan makes simple handled bowls; and Kurt Hertzog looks at using various types of shell in his turned work.

In ‘Features’, we meet Irish woodturner Max Brosi; Ray Key observes changes in the world of turning since 1965; we go into the workshop with Juergen Heid; and Stephen Hatcher shares one of his ‘half-moon’ forms with us.

As well as all this, we also have our usual ‘Kit&Tools’ pages, ‘Leader’ from the Editor, ‘Community news’ and ‘Letters’ as well as a sneak peek of our next issue and this month’s ‘Giveaway’.
