Discover new woodturning projects, techniques, and tips from the legendary woodturner, Steven Hogbin! Since the early 1970s, Steven Hogbin has been a trendsetter in the world of woodturning. Starting with a completely new take on lathework and woodturning projects, Hogbin reinvented the previously routine process of turning with an exhibition that featured cut-apart, re-assembled, and carving-enhanced masterpieces. He set the standard for innovation, creativity, and precision-driven expertise then and has not stopped introducing new takes on the woodturning project since. Now, a new woodturner or expert can gain instruction and insight into his one of a kind style with detailed examinations of 11 of Hogbin's finest efforts. Each project is presented step-by-step so that any woodturner can reproduce it, but the descriptions of his projects and techniques are much more than a DIY "how-to." Hogbin's descriptions make the lathe jump to life, helping novice and pro learn to develop the skills needed to assess a lathe and piece of wood and learn the personalities of both in order to craft a masterpiece. Follow this book's turning methods and new projects--as well as existing efforts--will jump to life. In addition, each project and every page of the book contains interesting autobiographical

About the Author

Stephen Hogbin, while remaining embedded in his own region of Owen Sound is recognized internationally by collectors, educators and professional organizations for his influence in studio wood turning and furniture making. In the early 1970s, he developed a rich vocabulary of alternate forms to the 1000-year-old technique of lathe work. These innovative forms became a keystone to the development of the contemporary domain. Primarily a studio artist with an inclusive and multi discipline approach, he is also an occasional curator and author.
