Product Information
Specification

Original published in the 1920s, this textbook is intended primarily for the use of students in schools or colleges and for lovers of all things useful and beautiful in wood turning. It aims by means of text and illustrations to give such facts about The Art of Wood Turning as are needed by students and teachers. In giving these facts, whenever there is a question between two methods of procedure, the one being the method of the factory expert in wood-turning, and the other the method of the art craftsman in the school, the latter has been employed. As a result it is sometimes true that a less direct method is recommended than is employed by the commercial turner, but this is justified on the ground of the purpose of the book, which is fundamentally educational.
