Spheres within spheres, stars within cubes, delicate lattices with no apparent means of support – woodturners over the centuries have developed a whole range of extraordinary structures which seem at first sight to be quite impossible. In fact, all of these things can be made by anyone with basic woodturning skills, an ordinary lathe and simple hand tools – and this book shows you how.

A best-seller when first published in 1993, the book has been thoroughly revised for this new edition, with colour photography throughout. Stunning new 3-D illustrations show cutaway views of the work in progress, making the instructions even easier to follow than before.
