Description: Two of the country’s leading woodturners, Nick Agar and David Springett, have collaborated to produce this new and exciting book. Together, they have developed a novel approach to woodturning using thin, narrow planks of wood (usually of little use to woodturners) to produce hollow, twisted vessels. This turning method is described in detail and there are 14 designs, each accompanied by fully illustrated step-by-step instructions plus an inspirational gallery. Nick Agar also describes how he uses his highly original decorative methods and artistic skills to complete the finished vessels. This is a fresh and exciting approach to woodturning that creates modern, dynamic pieces.

Description: This handbook takes the reader through the process of finding, processing, seasoning and drying their own unique timber and is aimed at independent woodworkers across a whole range of disciplines. To this day, most literature on seasoning and drying timber takes into account that the readers are dealing with timber by the kiln-load, but this title is aimed at one-man-bands, who work with small garden timber and writes in an entertaining and accessible manner. The book covers: anatomical structures of wood; identifying timber; sourcing timber; seasoning timber and drying timber.
