This revised edition by the late Peter Child's son, Roy Child, includes up-to-date machinery, revised text and new photography. Starting with basic principles, the book takes the reader through a logical sequence of techniques covering all the skills needed to produce any well-crafted piece of woodturnery. The second section of the book is devoted to a wide selection of projects, including peppermills, table legs and chequered turning. Step-by-step text and illustrations give the best possible explanation of the methods described. The book aims not only to teach all the skills needed for competent turnery but also to inspire the amateur to become an expert craftsman.
