This one-of-a-kind book is an essential resource for beginning woodturners as well as people who have spent many hours at the lathe. It provides 70 patterns for a wide range of woodturning projects--from bottle stoppers, chopsticks and salad bowls to holiday ornaments, drawer knobs, tool handles, and candlesticks. Every pattern includes all the measurements you need to turn the piece, as well as a drawing to show you how the finished piece will look. The text also provides basic woodturning lessons and offers helpful tips on woods and finishes to use, advice on how to turn a piece successfully, and background on some legendary woodturners and other artisans whose work inspired several patterns.
