5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Excellent, 23 Aug 2010
This is a simply fantastic book. having read several books on the subject, I think this is by far the best introduction to woodturning you can find (beyond learning in the workshop under an instructor). It is exceedingly well written. The layout makes the considerable content easy to access. The projects are presented clearly and build confidence very quickly.
If you are looking for a book on woodturning, whether a novice, beginner or experienced turner (or even if you don't consider yourself a 'turner' yet), this is the best investment you'll make.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good place to start, 23 Aug 2010
This is a good book on Woodturning. It's easy to read and there's lots and lots of colour pictures. While there are better books around, the cost and it's ease of use make this well worth considering.

2.0 out of 5 stars Adult Sultan costume, 23 Aug 2010
It's quite fun, but the size is definitely for a smaller adult. If you're of a bigger build then you might struggle with the waistcoat/jacket. That said, the turban is quite effective (be careful if you get wet - I found the colour from the feather leaks out). The costume worked well, but I doubt it will last for multiple parties.
