Outstanding Guide to Lathe Turning
If you are interested in lace bobbins or learning how to use a mini lathe to turn small items, you will find "Turning Lace Bobbins With David Springett" fascinating. It is packed with detailed information about all of the steps necessary to create bobbins with every style of decoration and turning. The clear & profuse illustrations and instructions are better than any I've seen in any other book on how to use a lathe to create small items of wood, bone or horn.
Included is a history of lace bobbins and sections on materials and equipment, getting started and creating and decorating every style of lace bobbin you can imagine. It has 124 pages and measures 8 1/4" by 10 3/4". These are new, autographed copies, published in the UK in 1995. ISBN 0 9517157 4 7
