Create your own turned furniture elements! Woodturning is a subject many furniture makers shy away from, opting for factory-turned furniture parts. But investing in a lathe and a modest collection of turning tools can open up a wide array of options. Turned legs, spindles, rails, knobs and pulls adorn such classic furniture styles as Sheraton, Chippendale and Shaker. Learning to turn your own furniture elements gives you the keys to the kingdom when it comes to period style--and it's not as difficult as you might think. This book by award-winning furniture maker Mike Dunbar gives you a complete course on turning furniture parts. You'll learn how to create chair and table legs, staircase balusters, bedposts, rails and stiles--even if you've never worked on a lathe before. Essential techniques covered include spindle turning, duplication, reeding, fluting and spiral turning. In addition you'll learn: • The ins and outs of lathe operation, maintenance and safety • Which tools you should invest in and which ones you can take a pass on • Proper tool sharpening and honing procedures • Woodturning techniques such as creating beads, coves, urns and vases • How to turn duplicates • And much more! Previously published as "Woodturning for Cabinetmakers," this reissue of a woodworking classic gives you the skills you need to turn your back on inferior factory-made components and turn your own parts that you can be proud of.

Robert Penn cut down an ash tree to see how many things could be made from it. After all, ash is the tree we have made the greatest and most varied use of over the course of human history. Journeying from Wales across Europe and Ireland to the USA, Robert finds that the ancient skills and knowledge of the properties of ash, developed over millennia making wheels and arrows, furniture and baseball bats, are far from dead. The book chronicles how the urge to understand and appreciate trees still runs through us all like grain through wood.

Why this book exists: During the twenty years or so since I built this foot-powered treadle lathe, I have received many requests for drawings or plans. The lathe has been used as part of our traditional woodworking demonstrations and it never fails to draw a crowd. Of course, the reason the lathe exists is because I felt a need for it as a tool. Design considerations: Some of the main considerations when designing the lathe were: * Human powered - our solar energy system was pretty small at the time * Size - it had to be less than 42" tall to fit into our old truck * Compact - since it would sit in our small shop most of the time, a small footprint was essential * Portable - as in not too cumbersome or heavy * Functional - it had to perform the basic duties of a light-duty lathe * Adaptable - I had in mind several non-traditional uses for the tool, such as sanding --------------- Many unique and usable lathes have been built using earlier editions of this book. This book provides you with the instructions, photos and illustrations, and inspiration to build your own treadle lathe!
