Description

It is estimated that nearly 3 billion board feet of urban lumber are buried, chipped, burned or otherwise destroyed. Dr. Sherrill discusses how to alleviate at least some of this waste by harvesting this timber and using it for a variety of different purposes. There are clear, concise, step-by-step instructions on felling, bucking, sawing, and drying timber. There are case studies of how some communities have used this timber for public works projects and how independent tree services can convert this timber and sell it to both professional and hobbiest woodworkers. This is a much needed book that addresses an increasingly difficult problem faced by many communities.

  • Hogbin on Woodturning: Masterful Projects Uniting Purpose, Form & Technique

    Hogbin on Woodturning Cover $24.99
    $14.99

    Legendary woodturner Stephen Hogbin’s work has been groundbreaking at every turn. He first burst on the scene in the early 1970s with an exhibition of turnings like no one had ever seen—cut apart, re-assembled, enhanced by carving, and bearing little resemblance to the standard round stuff that characterized the lathe. Now the internationally recognized designer examines ten of his finest and most innovative creations, and distills each piece to a useful project that any woodturner can replicate. This is the first time that Hogbin has described his techniques and presented his ideas in step-by-step project format. All of these projects begin with the lathe, but each features inventive cutting into the turned elements and recombining the pieces to make entirely new forms. They do not require advanced technical skills, but will encourage you to break out of the basic vocabulary of woodturning and see its marvelous new possibilities. Hogbin on Woodturning reveals how a master designer integrates his visionary concepts with practical work at the lathe, allowing each to feed into the other. By replicating Hogbin's turning methods in your own home workshop, you’ll gain stimulating new insight into the lathe and discover how to get the most out of your craft.
