Now in its third edition, this useful guide takes you through the basics of setting up shop, including lathe selection, hand tools and safety considerations. It also describes the wide variety of blank materials and kits available, as well as turning techniques and finishing options.
Includes seven projects for turning pens with wooden blanks, six for non-wooden materials such as Corian, Inlace and deer antler, and five other projects for the advanced turner. A question-and-answer chapter covers everything from separating a glued finger from the blank to repairing cracks and chips.
