Some of the world's best woodturners explain how you can recreate their favorite projects. John Hunnex reveals how he transforms plywood into gallery-style bowls, and Robin Wood uses a pole lathe to make replicas of bowls and platters found aboard the Tudor warship. Reg Hawthorne explains cutouts as a way to add interest to turnings with pierced and carved flowers, vines, and insects, while Tom Crabb demonstrates making a bowl with handles. Other master craftworkers introduce intriguing items like a painted Celtic decoration; a three-footed leaf-shaped bowl; multi-center hollow forms; "throwing" pottery-style vases; and making a large, oval, wane-edged bowl from green wood. Dozens more projects will quickly bring an expert sense of design and quality to all your work. 120 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 11 3/4.
