Extract from back cover of book:

Seven great projects for the smaller lathe, designed for beginning to intermediate turners, are presented in a fully illustrated step-by-step fashion. Included are instructions for turning two types of scoops, a lidded cylinder box, a lidded bowl with a foil-leaf interior finish, a Christmas ornament tumed from last year's tree, a beautiful carving set, and large salt and pepper mills. Each of these projects can be completed in the course of a weekend, A photo gallery offers the turner many variations on the themes shown in the book and entices them to try their own ideas.

An experienced demonstrator and teacher, Bill Bowers covers the basics, including issues of safety and technique, and then shares the joy he finds in turning. He encourages the reader to always remember, exuberance experienced at the lathe is exceptional medicine for the soul.
