Woodturning: A Foundation Course (New Edition)

Keith Rowley's best-selling introduction to the art of woodturning is exceptional for its friendly and methodical approach, building up the reader's skills and confidence by logical and progressive steps. At the heart of Keith's method are the 'Laws of Woodturning': six easily memorized rules which are fundamental to efficient and safe technique. Woodturning: A Foundation Course includes step-by-step instructions for 12 simple and effective projects: goblet, apple and pear, your first bowl, platter, bar stool, staircase balusters, plinth, inlaid nut bowl, twig pot, pepper mill, table lamp and twist pen.

Both between-centres and faceplate turning are described and illustrated in detail, along with boring, routing and finishing techniques. You will learn about timber selection, and how to choose the right tool and equipment.
