Extract from back cover of book:

Here's the woodturning book designed for all those who bought mini lathes to make pens with Dick Sing's previous project books and are now in need of new challenges. Dick has put together a wonderful variety of projects for small size objects that will enhance your woodturning skills and stir your imagination.

Using clear, step-by-step instructions and colour photos, Dick illustrates the turning of decorative clip magnets and rare-earth magnets, bolo tie slides with matching earrings, switch knobs that attach to lamps, and handy little brushes that can be used for a multitude of purposes.

Throughout the book, Dick focuses on various techniques for holding your work piece that will help you conquer difficult positions for small and large projects alike. You will learn how to add embellishments like beads, contours and chatterwork, plus wow your friends with the addition of a captive ring.

Once you've achieved the basics, you can hone your skills with concentric and offset inlays using various combinations of wood. These projects may be small in size, but they are definitely big on fun, flair and satisfaction.
