Synopsis

A guide to the art of turning delicate bowls and goblets from freshly felled, unseasoned wood. Using "green" timber enables you to choose and cut your own wood. The author explains how to harvest and store timber, and how to make the best use of the grain patterns and other properties. Six projects are described and illustrated: a cross-grain translucent bowl; a cross-grain natural-edge bowl; an end-grain bowl; a natural-edge end-grain bowl; a natural-edge end-grain goblet; and a part-turned bowl.
