Description

This is a revised edition of this bestselling title. Michael O’ Donnell, one of the foremost exponents of the technique of wood turning, explains how to harvest and store timber, and how to make the best use of the grain pattern and other properties.

Turning green wood can be made so delicate that it is actually translucent, and the thickness of the wood can be gauged by shining a light through it as you work. Using clear text and spectacular photographs to show exactly how this is done, this book demystifies one of the most admired techniques used by woodturners today. It also features six inspirational projects to make, including: cross-grain translucent bowl, cross-grain natural-edge bowl, end-grain bowl, natural-edge end-grain bowl, natural-edge end-grain goblet and part-turned bowl.
