Turning Techniques & Projects An inspiring overview for beginners and beyond

by the Editors of Fine Woodworking

Wood turning - growing more popular by the minute! More and more woodworkers, especially those strapped for time, are attracted to turning - often because it is a craft that requires less time than pursuits like furniture making. Plus, it requires only a few tools and offers almost instant gratification.

Learn more about turning from the experts. Whether you're new to turning or tried it before, treat yourself to a copy of Turning Techniques & Projects. This collection of the best articles on turning from Fine Woodworking magazine offers you an in-depth look at techniques and expert advice from America's #1 woodworking authority.

Best practices and tricks of the trade. Turning Techniques & Projects offers a solid introduction to basic turning tools, including chisels, scrapers, and gouges, and provides essential information on:

  • Faceplate turning - transforming a chunk of wood into a stand-alone piece
  • Practical tips for hollowing end grain
  • How to fix turning mistakes
  • Finishing and colorizing techniques

Great projects that take hours, not weeks. The beauty of turning, of course, is how quickly you can complete a piece. Projects can be as simple as turning authentic Shaker knobs to accent a larger piece. You can also make small, but highly artistic pieces such as pens, segmented vessels, bowls, boxes, and candlesticks. And don't forget, turning is key to making elegant furniture parts such as spindles and pad-foot legs.

Try turning and get more done in the woodshop! Turning Techniques & Projects offers an exciting look into the art and craft of turning. With only a few tools, a lathe, and a little free time, you can turn out some really creative projects. Try it, you'll like it!
