Wood Turning for the Garden
Published by Schiffer Publishing, West Chester, Pennsylvania USA
Extract from back cover of book:
Wood turners regularly make items for home use. Most easily list at least fifty items for household use. However, how many items could you think of for use in your yard?
Mike Cripps tackles some projects for the great outdoors in this book, an area so sadly neglected by wood turners. With suitable woods and a treatment that protects projects from the elements, Mike Cripps takes the reader step-by-step through three turning projects. He introduces Americans to the "garden dibbler", illustrates the techniques for turning a planter with unseasoned wood, and produces a beautiful bird nesting box.
These projects are suitable for woodturners of most levels of ability. Hobbyists and professionals alike will enjoy turning unseasoned timber, which is free from dust and requires virtually no sanding or difficult-to-apply glossy finish.
