The Art Of The Lathe: Award-Winning Designs

“Spielman, one of the best known and most prolific woodworking authors...has created what may be the finest general book available on lathe-turning....[The book] consists of three general sections: Lathes and their uses; how-to projects from a variety of artists featuring jewelry, bowls, a birdhouse, chess pieces, and a handheld mirror; and a gallery of exceptional turnings. The excellent photographs and illustrations will inspire.”—Library Journal

I bought this book to increase my imagination and creativity. It is a little more than a "coffee table" book, with 69 pages of turning instuctions,and 89 pages of incredible works by different artists (Bud Latven, William Schmidt, Hugh McKay, and many more). To me, this inspiring book has sparked my interest in the lathe again.
