Featuring clear language and appealing full-colour illustrations, this intermediate-level manual shifts the focus to a survey of interesting special techniques that are seldom seen together in one volume – including chucking, turning spindles, drilling, forming round objects and multi-axis turning. Projects in this guidebook include chucking a spoon, creating a ring and turning a sculpture of a tree from a block of wood. Many of these tricks are shown to come from the long history of woodturning and a number of old engravings and other materials are presented to give historical depth to the discussion.
