64 full color pages, 5 page gallery. Color step-by-step directions for making 1 big bowl. I don't think this is for the beginner, it still scares me (even without the bleeding finger safety tips). Good techniques and I learned a lot, but it was too involved for my first bowl. I'll keep it in my library for later. Contents: Sharpening, Starting from a log (chain saw required), roughing out green wood, [wait while wood drys], turning the bowl, sanding with discs using a drill, building a jig for turning the foot, finishing (includes Judy's Low-tech, fun-n-easy-to-make, so-nontoxic-you-could-eat... finish recipe).

This is a fine addition to any woodturner's library. Judy has taken great lengths to present the process of bowl turning in a concise, easy to understand and follow book. Photos are clear, plentiful and throughly illustrate her approach to bowl turnning.

Judy Ditmer has a way with words, and her expertise makes this basic turning book one that is a pleasure to take home. Full of many photos, it is easy to follow what she is saying, and she thinks of many 'do-nots' as well as 'do this' lessons. From small items to large, from sharpening to harvesting logs to necessary equipment and sanding techniques, Judy Ditmer makes the lessons easy to follow. Includes home-made jigs and lots of small tips for success. Highly recommended.

Widely obsolete. In the other hand Richard Raffan's books are plenty of XXIst century information, designs and techniques. Poor photos and texts.
