From the PublisherIf you are looking for a new range of projects for the lathe, Woodturning Jewellery could be the helping hand you need to learn the basics. Armed with this information, your imagination becomes the only limiting factor in this interesting form of turning.
For the turner who has never entertained the idea of turning jewelry, this book would stimulate the creativity and provide an overview to the many techniques. The British terminology makes for interesting reading, i.e. Colour (Color), Pillar Drill (Drill Press), Timber (Block of Wood) and makes one realize that woodturning is universal, not the terminology. $22.95 seems a bit steep but I think the last chapters especially would benefit most woodturners. I would buy it.
Very well written and thought out, it includes chapters on design and also various finishing techinques. Any turner is bound to learn at least a few new tricks from this book.
