Woodturning Wizardry by David Springett

Book Description

Spheres within spheres, stars within cubes, delicate lattices with no apparent means of support - wood turners over the centuries have developed a whole range of extraordinary structures which seem at first sight to be quite impossible. In fact, all of these items can be made by anyone with basic wood turning skills, an ordinary lathe and simple hand tools - and this book shows you how. Topics included are: arrow through a bottle, lattice-lidded boxes, lattice pomander, Singapore ball, spiked star in sphere or cube, captive cube in sphere, pierced sphere, lidded box in sphere, Chinese balls and rings, and interlocking spheres. A best-seller when first published in 1993, the book has been thoroughly revised for this new edition, with colour photography throughout. It features stunning new 3-D illustrations showing cutaway views of the work in progress, making the instructions even easier to follow than before. The introductory chapters describe the equipment required - much of which you can make yourself - and give advice on wood selection, setting out the work, and workshop health and safety.
