This ebook has been divided into two parts:
(A) Spindle Turning, and
(B) Face-Plate Turning.
The same order is followed in each part; the related information is supplied where required as the pupil progresses.
Part A takes up the following:
(II) Models, involving the same tool processes, only in a somewhat different degree;
(III) Oval Turning, explaining the use of two centers;
(IV) Duplicate Turning, where identical pieces are turned.
Part B is arranged as follows:
(II) Models, which are an application of cuts in exercises that involve only face-plate work;
(III) Models, which require chucking;
(IV) Assembling Exercises, involving spindle turning, face-plate work and chucking;
(V) Spiral Turning, showing the method of turning a spiral on the lathe.
The ultimate aim of this book is to give, through the exercises and problems, a thorough understanding of the principles of wood turning by gradually developing the confidence of the pupil in the complete control of his tools, at the same time suggesting harmonious lines in design which will lead to other ideas in designing problems.
