This is a gem of a book. It is well written, researched and wonderfully presented.
Robin is evidently a master of his craft and his enthusiasm and knowledge leaps from every page.
This is an absolute must of a book for anyone interested in history and woodcraft and would compliment anybody's book collection. I wish this first book of Robin Wood the very best of success.

The Wooden bowl is a great resource on a couple of levels. Those who are interested in the history wooden bowl their uses. The social history aspect of the book is well researched. I found the facts that the British Isles was a wood-ware culture for the better part of a thousand years. Also the idea that wooden table ware was found across the social spectrum and not only used by the poor.

Aficionados of British timber species suitable for turning will also find this a valuable resource. Last and certianly not least is the exploration of various turning methods that precede powered lathes.

The wooden bowl is well researched , referenced and written by a wood turner with a real passion for the past.

A great book, with lots of high quality photos. Good historical context with a technical theme. More about turning than carving, a very good book for those interested in the history of wood turning.
