Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lathe work can beget sinuous beauty from even the roughest wood. Hiebert, Harm Hazeu, Tim Bergen, and Henry Bergen, all expert woodworkers and craftspeople, showcase their finest projects and provide detailed instructions on how to re-create them. A useful dictionary of wood types prefaces the text, but the numbered step-by-step instructions that accompany most projects do not correspond to the pictures, which complicates the process. Additionally, some of the images are too blurry, dark, and small to be helpful. A marginal purchase; instead, try Richard Raffan's Taunton's Complete Illustrated Guide to Turning.
