  • TURNING WOOD WITH CARBIDE TOOLS: Techniques and Projects for Every Skill Level

    Turning Wood with Carbide Tools cover $21.95

    Everything a woodturner needs to know about using and implementing the exciting new technology of replaceable carbide cutting tips is included in this guide. Woodturning tools have taken a quantum leap since the recent introduction of these tips that have greatly simplified the task of turning in dry stock. Carbide-tipped woodturning tools are safer, faster, easier, and more efficient than traditional tools that require grinding the end of a piece of fluted steel to one of dozens of subjective profiles. The technology of the carbide cutters is fully explained, as are the various shafts and the function of the handle designs, providing insight into how and why these cutters act as they do, and why they are shaped as they are. Removing the intimidating aspects of turning, the guide explains the elimination of sharpening, addresses the issues of chatter and fatigue, and advises on maintenance, techniques, and usage. A number of projects are included—such as a candlestick, spinning tops, and a basic bowl—that can be completed right away by novice turners, rather than waiting for years to gain enough experience to do the same job with traditional tools.



    Reproduced from a rare original, this 1893 catalog provides nearly 800 detailed illustrations of stair railings, mantels, gables, moldings, and ornaments. Its varied, unusual examples of woodwork make it particularly valuable — woodturners, cabinetmakers, architects, preservationists, restorationists, designers, and students of Victoriana will find it inspiring and instructive.



    From making the first cut to applying the finish, this comprehensive reference details every aspect of woodcarving. All the essentials are covered for beginning woodworkers, such as how to choose appropriate woods; how to set up a wood shop; how to select, use, and sharpen tools; and how to perform fundamental techniques, such as the push cut, pull cut, stop cut, and slicing cut. General carving styles, from classical to whimsical to rustic, are also covered, as are the basic steps of power carving. Eight projects designed to help newer woodworkers build proficiency and a handy resource section round out this fully illustrated, must-have resource for woodcarvers.
