Spheres within spheres, stars within cubes, delicate lattices with no apparent means of support—woodturners over the centuries have developed a whole range of extraordinary structures which seem at first sight to be quite impossible. In fact, all of these things can be made by anyone with basic woodturning skills, an ordinary lathe and simple hand tools—and this book shows you how.
- A best-seller when first published in 1993, the book has been thoroughly revised for this new edition.
- Stunning new 3-D illustrations show cutaway views of the work in progress, making the instructions even easier to follow than before.
- A variety of projects in addition to an introductory chapter outlining the required equipment, advice on selecting wood, as well as workshop safety.
David Springett has been a professional woodturner for 30 years with a particular interest in more experimental work, such as the seemingly impossible pieces described in his first book, Woodturning Wizardry. He has three other books published by GMC Publications.
