The one brand of woodwork that seems to promise instant gratification is woodturning. Once you’ve selected, sized and mounted your timber blank the rest can smoothly follow. No unsightly joinery to worry about either as it’s possible to create all-in-one forms. The downside of course is that while you easily take away material, you can’t put it back on.

This book offers a range of projects that can be carried out in a matter of hours or just a day or two. The forms are uncomplicated, great for those who seek to build and develop skills.

The author is editor of UK Woodturning magazine and a lifelong woodworker.

Initial chapters introduce tools and equipment, and address safety issues. The 25 projects contained therein cover a range of kitchen aids including a rolling pin, scoops, egg cups, salt and pepper shakers, mortar and pestle and more, plus a range of bowls, vases and a lidded form or two.

The photos and diagrams are excellent. A great book for beginners.
