30-Minute Woodturning

For any keen woodturners out there who want to do more turning but are short of time, this is the perfect book as it has an enticing variety of projects which can all be completed in 30 minutes. Even for those working at an intermediate level, this book provides you with something to aim for without compromising safety and it will help beginners to build their skills.

Each of the 25 projects also has plans for four variations included so there are a total of 100 designs to whet your appetite. Most of the projects require only basic turning tools and workshop accessories that nearly every turner will have. A list of tools and materials required is included for each one, along with drawings with dimensions.

Projects include a candlestick holder, doorstop, decorative bird box, toadstool, spatula, honey dipper, bud vase and square edge plate.
