Review

<DIV><P style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; mso-layout-grid-align: none">"An exciting and accomplished book from a world-leading authority on woodturning. For this reason and many others, I would strongly recommend this to any turner, particularly those who are looking to develop their repertoire and push their skills forward."  —Woodturning (UK)

From the Back Cover

From professional woodturner and instructor Mike Darlow comes Woodturning Methods, the second book in his acclaimed Woodturning Series, and the first book to comprehensively cover tools and techniques needed to turn unusual forms like rings, ellipses, and spheres. And, while you can incorporate many of these special shapes into your everyday turning, the ability to create these unique designs will elevate your projects and talents to an entirely new level. With clear language and beautiful photography, Woodturning Methods presents an in-depth perspective into woodturning's history, heritage, and development along with expert tips and techniques covering: - The art of chucking - Turning spindles and slender spindles - Shaping spheres and ellipses - Eccentric and multi-axis turning - Drilling in the lathe Until 1995 Mike ran a large woodturning business in Sydney. He now turns and writes in the nearby Southern Highlands, and teaches internationally.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book. It won't teach you how to use a skew or how to turn an ordinary bowl. It starts where that kind of book leaves off. You will find thirteen ways to turn an accurate ball, eight ways to drill or bore holes on a lathe, three machines that can turn ellipses and umpteen ways to steady slender or unbalanced turnings. The first chapter deals comprehensively with chucks from the time that Noah turned the handles of the ark - and it transpires that the 'modern' scroll chuck was in use more than a century ago. There are chapters on turning rings of al kinds, turning objects on multiple axes, eccentric turning and therming (go look that one up).
The book is not for the timid. Some sections are positively heavy going; the author backs up the pretty pictures with just enough theory and math. All the illustations were drawn, photographed or scanned by him and they are superb. His care in devising, setting up and executing them is very apparent. Text is about equally divided between body and captions and is concise, clear and easy to read. At the end of each chapter are copious endnotes and right at the end a seven page bibliography for further reading.
I could not put the book down and finished it in a sitting, and have since gone back to re-read several sections. I can see that I will repeat this often in future. The book will definitely have several reprints or editions and one hopes that the author will then get rid of the unnecessary typographical errors. One also hopes that he will come to grips with the spelling of words like 'asymmetrical' and will learn the difference between 'centripetal' and 'centrifugal'.

As a professional turner with 52 years experience, I find much in this book that I like. Many of Mike's methods I have used and, many I have not. Now that I'm retiring, I shall turn for fun with the help of this book.
