For thousands of years mankind has created hollow forms to store either everyday objects or things of value - but functional objects can also be beautiful in their own right. This comprehensive book will guide the beginner through everything they need to know to get started with turning their own hollow forms. You will learn how to work with different types of wood, which tools to use and how to apply basic techniques with confidence. Learn the basic principles of form, proportion and design and how to apply this knowledge to your own work. Seven striking projects are set out in a clear step-by-step format and progress in difficulty. AUTHOR: After a background in engineering and then serving in the police force for 12 years, Mark Sanger started woodturning as a way to relax. He soon had work accepted by local galleries and then turned to professional turning as a vocation. Mark is a teacher, demonstrator and writer on the subject as well as selling his work through galleries and private commissions. He specialises in hollow and lidded forms and draws inspiration from natural forms, colour, texture and far eastern philosophy and culture. He lives with his family in the south of England. www.marksanger.co.uk
