Boxes with Friction-Fitted Lids
Published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd, PA, USA
Extract from back cover of book:
A useful and informative book designed for beginning to intermediate turners. Veteran turner Bill Bowers leads them step-by-step through constructing the classic cylinder box, cylinder box variants with embellishments, the classic capsule box, and capsule box variants with chatter tool work.
With over 300 colour photos, each step is clearly described and illustrated, taking the turner from mounting the blank to the lathe to finishing.
Projects include a Raffan box, a pagoda box, the clam shell box, the gourd box, and small hollow form boxes with bottle top and finial top lids. A photo gallery at the book's conclusion will help give the reader more ideas on trying their hand at new turning box adventures.
