Surpassing the conventional "cookbook approach" to woodturning, this remarkable collection of eight projects in The Woodturner's Project Book highlights the important roles that passion and state of mind play in woodturning projects. Each project-accompanied by step-by-step photos and a bill of materials-is not only designed to help woodworkers improve their skills, but also to act as a starting point for them to brainstorm more effectively about their own pieces. The exercises gradually increase in difficulty, building towards the "Inside Out Vase," a sleek and elegant project pierced by four lancet windows. Along the way, turners will learn about gouge orientation, turning hollow forms, turning a ball, and many other essential woodturning techniques.
Ellis Hein has been turning wood for nearly 40 years. His articles have been published in Wood Turns e-zine, Woodturning Design magazine, and Woodworker's Journal. He lives in Casper, Wyoming.
