Woodturning Spindle Projects: Easy-to-follow techniques for 18 projects by Alan HolthamFox Chapel Publishing, 2010.$24.95; 176 pp.
Woodturning Spindle Projects: Easy-to-follow techniques for 18 projects looks like a good book for the beginning or intermediate woodturner. The book is broken down into two sections. The first section covers woodturning in general and includes such things as info on setting up a shop for turning, tools, finishes and safety. The second section (and the majority of the book) includes 18 different turning projects to get you going. The projects include step-by-step photos and instructions and nice photos of the finished pieces. Examples of some of the projects are a bird box, table leg, garden accessories, and fruit. So you see there is a great variety to choose from.
