Pracht, K. Woodturning
London: Dryad Press,, 1988. Illustrated by Numerous Colour & b/w Illustrations. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No DJ. 4to 085219773X Colour illustrated laminated boards. 400 line drawings 864 photographs. 224pp, clean and tight. The shaping of wood by turning, first for essential items and then, increasingly, for decorative purposes, has its origins in the skills of primitive man. But the art of woodturning has much to offer to today's society in terms of both design and function. Klaus Pracht has produced a complete account of the craft using hundreds of specially taken, in-process photographs, numerous examples of finished turned pieces and a succinct text. With clear illustrations and with all techniques having been tested on the lathe, this book provides a wealth of information on the applications of the craft to today's environment. Sections are included on: wood technology; types of wood; tools and equipment; safety precautions; laminating; spindle turning; design before and after turning; special techniques; plates, bowls and jars; beakers and goblets; furnishings; toys; banisters and much more. Given the breadth of coverage the book will serve equally as a comprehensive instruction manual for the less experienced turner or as a source book for the craftsman. Klaus Pracht is a master craftsman with vast experience in all aspects of designing and working with wood. He is an independent member of the German Association of Architects, and lectures on wood construction at colleges throughout Germany. (Book ref. 129226) £5.00
