Woodturning Techniques--Furniture and Cabinet Making

Popular Woodworking has just re-issued a book by Mike Dunbar, originally published as Woodturning for Cabinetmakers in 1990. The new title is Woodturning Techniques with the subtitle "Furniture & Cabinetmaking." (This is not to be confused with Mike Darlow's Woodturning Techniques published in 2001).

While the cover photo is slightly different, the content is the same as the original edition, including the black and white photographs. 

The original is now out of print, but is still available on the used book market. If you don't have a copy of the original edition and/or want a new book, it is available now for $29.99. See book description below:

"Woodturning is a subject many furniture makers shy away from, opting for factory-turned furniture parts. But investing in a lathe and a modest collection of turning tools can open up a wide array of options. Turned legs, spindles, rails, knobs and pulls adorn such classic furniture styles as Sheraton, Chippendale and Shaker. Learning to turn your own furniture elements gives you the keys to the kingdom when it comes to period style--and it's not as difficult as you might think.

"This book by award-winning furniture maker Mike Dunbar gives you a complete course on turning furniture parts. You'll learn how to create chair and table legs, staircase balusters, bedposts, rails and stiles--even if you've never worked on a lathe before. Essential techniques covered include spindle turning, duplication, reeding, fluting and spiral turning. In addition you'll learn:

  • The ins and outs of lathe operation, maintenance and safety
  • Which tools you should invest in and which ones you can take a pass on
  • Proper tool sharpening and honing procedures
  • Woodturning techniques such as creating beads, coves, urns and vases
  • How to turn duplicates

And much more!
