Product Information:

By Keith Rowley. Woodturning is perhaps the most exciting and satisfying area of woodworking. Here's a complete course in the basic, safe and correct techniques for mastering the lathe. In no time you'll learn to create beautifully shaped balusters, bowls, platters and pens by using gouges and chisels on a lathe. Each chapter takes on an essential aspect of woodturning-from types of lathes and accessories to sharpening, from turning between centers to faceplate turning. Step-by-step photos and exploded diagrams make this the perfect workshop accessory for anyone just beginning to use a lathe.
