Extract from back cover of book:

In this full color, beautiful new work, Judy Ditmer shares her extensive knowledge of bowl turning with the novice turner. Beginning with the preparation and seasoning of the bowl blank, Judy takes the turner step-by-step through the finished product. Along the way she covers the proper use of tools, design considerations, and safety considerations for the turner. The techniques she shares will have an immediate impact on the readers understanding and practice of woodturning. While addressed particularly to those who are new to turning, Judy's years of experience come through and will be valuable to turners of all levels. The project in the book is a beautiful salad bowl. Step-by-step photographs cover the process from beginning to end, including the construction of necessary jigs for the lathe. A gallery will spark the imagination of the reader and begin to reveal the possibilities of turning.
