Description - Small and Miniature Turning by Ron Hampton

Small-scale turning is one of the most exciting challenges available to the wood turner, and offers a vast range of possibilities, from small vases and boxes to scale models of furniture and machinery. This book tells you all you need to know in order to get started on this absorbing craft: how to season and store your wood, how to choose the appropriate tools, and even how to make some tools for yourself, which is not as difficult as it sounds. Compared to other forms of turning, small-scale work is economical in terms of materials and equipment, and small pieces are easier to sell than large ones. But above all, small-scale turning is fun! The following attractive projects are covered in step-by-step detail: turquoise and tulipwood vase, metal-foil bowl with stand, miniature table, lidded box with finial, alabaster vase, lathe, spinning wheel, and fountain pen. This is a no-nonsense guide to the tools, materials and skills for miniature scale wood turning, assuming no previous knowledge of the craft.
