About this title


Expanded from several articles written for Woodturning magazine, these projects are not only fun to do, but fun to play with afterward. That's because they're all games! The designs begin with the simplest, and grow increasingly complex. But none is too hard; author R.C Bell isn't a professional woodturner, and his own lathe is 30 years old. After reading the introduction to the lathe (including both spindle and faceplate turning} and safety precautions, start by fashioning a set of Carpet Skittles, a game similar to bowling. Then try making Table Quoits, a form of ringtoss; Crown and Anchor, beloved by the British Royal Navy; Jactus, played on feast days in ancient Rome; an 18th century dice cup; and a Muslim Chess Set. Full instructions and bright color photographs at every stage give expert guidance to even the novice. Includes 30 projects from around the world. Complete rules for all the games, as well as quotations, make this more than just a woodworking book.
