Format: Paperback
This is one of a couple of books I read cover to cover and over again before I bought my first lathe. The information is fantastic and easy to understand, although it would have helped if I had a lathe at the same time when he was explaining tool techniques but it was easy enough to pick up quickly once I got started.
The projects are good as well giving you a place to get yourself started if you are looking at that chunk of wood with only a blank picture in your head.
A month later I am going strong with my lathe, turning bowls, goblets, coasters, dibbers etc but I still constantly refer to Keith's book when I need a little help so it has been well worth every cent
To all people thinking about woodturning as a new hobby, this book is an absolute must.

I am a beginner woodturner, and have no avenue to learn woodturning in my town(other than through books), and in the first couple of chapters of this book have learned PLENTY of useful information, from sharpening properly, to how to use tools properly, and how to build a jig for my grinder etc... I highly recommend this book.

This book thoroughly describes the process of woodturning, and introduces a set of laws which are commonly disregarded by the beggining woodturner. It also describes how to make a grinding jig specially designed for the begginer. With it, you can sharpen your lathe tools with precision and ease that is not availible with a regular grinding jig. Very good for the begginer, or anyone who is not quite sure about all the aspects of woodturning.

If the reader is not familiar with British terms the instructions can be hard to understand. I thought I was good at a lot of the British trade terms, but some of the ones used in this book are well beyond my understanding.

This book was recommended by my instructors and was well worth the money. It touched on everything in detail that was in the hands on course. A great go to book for a refresher.
