For thousands of years mankind has created hollow forms to store either everyday objects or things of value – but functional objects can also be beautiful in their own right. This comprehensive book will guide the beginner through everything they need to know to get started with turning their own hollow forms. You will learn how to work with different types of wood, which tools to use and how to apply basic techniques with confidence. Learn the basic principles of form, proportion and design and how to apply this knowledge to your own work. Seven striking projects are set out in a clear step-by-step format and progress in difficulty.
