Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
A guide to the art of turning delicate bowls and goblets from freshly felled, unseasoned wood. Using "green" timber enables you to choose and cut your own wood. The author explains how to harvest and store timber, and how to make the best use of the grain patterns and other properties. Six projects are described and illustrated: a cross-grain translucent bowl; a cross-grain natural-edge bowl; an end-grain bowl; a natural-edge end-grain bowl; a natural-edge end-grain goblet; and a part-turned bowl.

Turning projects featured for both beginner and experienced turners alike. Wood handling methods apply to carvers as well as wood turners. I highly recommend this book for turners of all skill levels who want to take advantage of green wood -- often free -- from local trees.
I say this because it presents the very best and most useful explanation of the wood itself. If you really want to do this "right" you cannot go forward without this knowledge. I also find his insight on tool technique and approach uniquely practical and very appropriate.
I disagree with the author on several significant points. He explains the drying of wood well, but advocates the use of pretty much anything, including random leftover paint, to seal end grain on blanks and therefore avoid splitting. My experience with that approach has been disastrous, and the so-treated wood split like mad and became firewood! In my experience only a specialized green wood sealer works. He also says there is no need to sand beyond 240 grit, as nothing changes via finer sanding. That is a major miss. Wood wakes up, changes color and shouts its micro-grain somewhere between 400 and 800 grain! Maybe he says what he does due to the very limited wood species variety available to him, as he mentions.
Regardless, this is a very good book!! I fear I have spent altogether too much time on my couple of caveats and hope you do not take it to too much overall importance.
I could not recommend this book more highly.
Something totally unrelated to the writing was a manufacturing defect. Pages after 74 up to 91 were all out of order. Not just out of order but fronts and backs were really off. Fortunately all pages were there but you had to hunt for them which was quite frustrating. After rereading a section three times I came to the realization that it wasn't my inability to comprehend but the book was screwed up. I contacted the seller and they gave me a full refund and told me to keep the book. Although I'd really like to have a "good" book. I'll probably photocopy the pages and put them in the right order just to make it more readable.
