Extract from back cover of book:

With 335 color photographs and a thorough text, Ron Hampton takes the turner/reader through every step necessary to create beautifully turned objects in both wood and stone on a small (mini) lathe! The projects here are a cherry goblet, whimsical mushrooms in many forms, a bowl with turquoise inlay, a potpourri pot, a leather Indian pot, a stone bowl, a Hawaiian bowl, and an ornamental bird house.

Further, the text provides a wealth of important information on lathe safety, turning tools, tool sharpening, and specialty tool rests. Also, a gallery featuring additional turned items created by Ron and several other artists are sure to fire the users imagination. This book is ideal for the beginning turner and is filled with details sure to please the advanced woodturner.
