23 Intriguing Easy-to-Build Wood Turning Projects

Turning ProjectsRichard Raffan has a master's eye when it comes to turning wood. In this book, he presents 23 intriguing woodturning projects -- rolling pins and mallets, hollow vessels, scoops, and ladles, even a turned hedgehog. The projects range from simple to complex, and Raffan provides you with complete instructions with step-by-step photos and drawings. These projects will lead you through a skill-building course in woodturning.

But this is more than a book of projects. You'll learn how to apply Raffan's acute sense of design and proportion to your work. Your details will be crisper, and you'll be producing better work, faster. A photo gallery of ideas at the end of each chapter is sure to inspire you to turn some truly unique pieces.

In this video, you'll learn to select the wood species best suited for a wide variety of turning projects. Raffan shows you how to manipulate skews, gouges and parting tools to produce the whole repertoire of wood-turning cuts, and how to recognize the structural aspects of a project as it develops on the lathe. Raffan also shows you how to sand and apply finishes and waxes, and he offers important safety tips throughout the video.

Among the projects Raffan shows you how to turn are hollow vessels, bottle coasters, spatulas, mallets, small bowls, and beads.
