Wood Turnings for the Garden, Paperback


Using over 230 color photographs, an introductory text about basic wood turning techniques, and step-by-step instructions, Mike Cripps guides his reader through the turning of bird houses, planters, and bulb planters known in England as garden dibbers.

The bird house and planter projects are turned from unseasoned lumber.

New hobbyists and seasoned professional wood turners alike will enjoy this book and the freedom they will derive from turning unseasoned timber, which is free from dust and needs virtually no sanding or difficult-to-apply glossy finish.

A color photo gallery will fire the wood turners imagination.

Patterns are provided for each project.
