This action manual shows you how to turn many common and uncommon furniture parts. Ernie Conover, a furniture maker and co-designer of the Conover lathe, demonstrates step-by-step turning skills including techniques, chucking, duplication and sharpening. You'll learn how to turn parts, from chair legs and bed posts to knobs, pulls and furniture ornaments.
You will also learn how to make columns and pilasters, how to flute, reed and spiral carve with a router, and how to make stretchers, arms, back posts and legs for reproduction pieces.
Detailed drawings and on-site photos complement Conover's easy-to-follow instructions. These new techniques and ideas give woodworkers more project options than ever.
