One of the problems that confronts all woodturners is how to turn a spiral. In this new book, Bill Bowers provides the answer. Richly illustrated and explained in simple terms, the book gives the novice as well as the expert all necessary information to fashion gallery-quality spiral-turned works of art. Innovative applications of stains and shapes are demonstrated on plates, platters, and bowls. Multiple tips turning delicate spirals as well as hand-threaded chasing are included. Various combinations and permutations of techniques are applied to standard turnings to make unique artistic pieces.
