about this item
Thousands of novice turners have learned to turn with Richard Raffan because he can explain the complex and sometimes confusing steps in turning in a clear and understandable way. This book will continue this long tradition with a collection of appealing new woodturning projects—candlesticks, a lamp and shade, sets of plates and bowls, even a turned duck call. The projects range from simple to complex, and Raffan provides complete instructions with step-by-step photos and drawings. These projects will lead the reader through a skill-building course in woodturning.
But this is more than a book of projects. Readers will learn how to apply Raffan’s acute sense of design and proportion to their work, their details will be crisper, and they’ll be able to produce better work, faster.
