Overview

The exciting craft of turning seen through an expert’s eyes. Whether you are a woodturning novice, a recreational turner, or an experienced professional, Woodturning Techniques provides you with an extraordinary look at this ever more popular craft. Treat yourself to this comprehensive reference written by Michael O’Donnell, one of the most respected practitioners of the art.

Woodturning, from vision to reality at warp speed. The appeal of woodturning is that the turner enjoys a great deal of artistic latitude and projects can be done quickly. First, you let your imagination go, envisioning the finished piece hidden in the wood. Then you go to work creating that vision. It’s like magic! And it happens quickly since the wood can revolve at up to 2,500 rpm so the results are almost instantaneous.

From wood selection to artful projects, it’s all here. Woodturning Techniquescovers the fundamentals on equipment, techniques, turning, and projects, providing a complete look at the process from beginning to end. Clear, step-by-step explanations are accompanied by stunning close-up photographs and detailed illustrations. Topics include:

  • Materials, equipment, and machinery
  • How to store timber
  • Workshop safety
  • Tools, tool sharpening, tool handling
  • Sanding and finishing
  • How to make bowls, lamps, goblets, boxes, fruit shapes, and more

A satisfying combination of tradition and innovation! Whatever your experience with turning, Woodturning Techniques will shed new light on the principles and processes of turning. The author shares his love of working with a natural and beautiful material in a cozy workshop where the pressures of the day can be left outside. And now you too can enjoy this craft that combines timeless skills with original thinking.
