Try a few of these 38 specially selected projects, each of which focuses on one particular woodturning technique. You'll quickly expand your skills to take on projects you always thought were beyond you. Ever heard of a boxing cleaver? Its inventor shows you how to make your own (or buy one from him) and use it to carve and decorate box lids. Another chapter shows how to use paper joints for turning so that the screws, clamps, and vises that hold the waste don't damage your work. A veteran toolmaker presents an old machine shop technique he has adapted for ornamental turning so you can use materials previously considered unsuitable. A woodturner with an artistic flair shows how to make an elegant-looking garden sculpture. Other techniques include how to get rid of fine dust in your workshop, how to make a complete set of accessories for your scroll chuck, how to use a glue gun to hot-glue a blank to a faceplate, and 31 more.
