Save Time and Get Turning With These Classic Patterns

This one-of-a-kind book is an essential resource for woodturners of all skill levels. With more than 80 patterns for a wide range of classic woodturning projects - from bottle stoppers, tops, and pepper mills to bowls, holiday ornaments, and candlesticks - Woodturning Patterns will get you started and produce great results every time you turn on the lathe.

Each pattern includes precise measurements as well as a finished drawing to show you how your completed piece will look. Also included are basic woodturning lessons and helpful tips on woods and finishes to use, advice on how to turn a piece successfully, and a bit of background on some legendary woodturners and artisans whose work inspired several of the featured patterns.
