Woodturning a Fresh Approach.
Robert Chapman. All serious woodturners will enjoy this book, which features a fresh look at bowl turning, hollow turning, and lidded pots and boxes. Photo and drawing sequences make it easy to follow construction of the projects, which include music boxes, a spool tidy, scales of jusice, and a wine bottle stand.

The text concentrates on the quality of turning design. Includes information on harvesting the wood for each project, and gives his secret for making DIY spalted wood.
