In a little over 100 pages this book takes the reader through the basics of woodturning in a methodical, thorough and concise manner. Safety procedures are well presented (and practical), the material lists are neatly laid out and the projects are simple yet elegant. This is the work of an experienced and clear headed woodturner.
The illustrations are superb, the editing is uncompromising (rare indeed nowadays). Altogether it is a remarkable book for <$20.
(And, yes, the projects I've tried thus far have worked out well.)

Now there isn't much information on suppliers nor is there much of a bibliography - but that information is readily available elsewhere and the omission is, IMHO, something of a blessing.
Definitely five stars.

This is a excellent book for the person getting involved in woodturning/lathe work. The book covers equipment, equipment care, time saving tips, finishing techniques, and several projects. The project sections have easy to follow instructions which help you to complete the project with a very successful outcome. The illustrations match up nicely with the sections, and the color pictures get the point across with clarity. Highly recommended!

Most excellent book!!!, gives comprehensive directions and lots of clear color photos along with straightforward text. An excellent book for the beginner as well. Gives a variety of projects so that you become familiar with the tools and techniques required for each type of turning you will want to do. Gives the beginner (Like Me) a good idea how to tackle each type of project. Even covers green wood turning and the principles of how the wood moves as it dries. Found it very interesting and easy to understand the principles conveyed between the covers.

Also bought this for my son and he said it is priceless! A much needed guideline for beginners and he loved the colored pictures that show what the wood should look like while following the instructions.

A basic intro to wood turning (just what I need) but it helps explain "how to" for us with little or no experience. It covers everything I wanted, from how to choose chisels, how to sharpen them, how to use the lathe machine, and even how to stand and grip the chisel. I'm really glad I bought this book.
