About the Author
Steve and his wife Sue Robishaw live on their backwoods homestead on 80 remote acres in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. They live in an 'underground', sod-roofed home that they built themselves, have a large organic garden that provides much of their food, and power their off-grid homestead with solar power. Steve has been involved in art and woodworking since he was young, and it has permeated his life since. Majoring in Art in college, Steve emerged into his art career in the late 70's when he decided to realize his vision of living and sculpting in the Northwoods. He is now a nationally recognized bowl and spoon carver with both bowls and spoons in many private collections. Other areas of interest are music (he is a fiddler), musical instrument restoration and repair, and recumbent bicycles (for years he rode a home-built, wood recumbent). Lately he has been celebrating his birthday by riding his age in miles on that day; last year, 69 miles.

Lathe is almost finished! See picture.
I still think this is a great resource. There were times I would have liked some more precise measurement on some things, but ultimately, since I did not have the same parts as Steve did and I had them machined to what I wanted, a lot of those things didn't matter. Don't think of these as plans but as a resource and great starting point. Really, more that just a starting point, but you need to be a fairly experienced woodwork and able to adjust things to how you want them to build this. I also paid a machinist to make all my metal parts short of buying a singer sewing machine part for the crank.
Great book and resource. I would not have been successful without it!!
I love this book.
