You’ve decided to give woodturning a try: you’ve purchased a lathe, you’ve got the tools, there’s a nice piece of stock at arm’s length, and you’re ready to start spinning some wood. What are going to make? You can only make so many bowls. Are there some classic go-to projects that every woodturner should know how to make — either for themselves or for family and friends? With almost two dozen projects, The Essential Woodturner provides the classic projects and the necessary techniques that every woodturner needs to know. Ranging from pepper mills, bottle stoppers, and pens to mallets, rolling pins, and duck calls-with a live-edge bowl thrown in for good measure-the project list in The Essential Woodturner is the ideal road map for woodturners seeking to make some fun stuff while expanding their talents and building their confidence. With helpful drawings, step-by-step photos, and easy-to-follow guidance, each project can be completed in a few hours or a couple of days and requires only basic tools and equipment.
