Turning Hollow Forms - Techniques and Projects. Author, Mark Sanger

For thousands of years, and throughout the globe, mankind has created hollow forms to store everyday essentials and things of value. Objects like these, while designed to be functional, can also be beautiful, intricate, imaginative, and decorative. Today, interest in making your own hollow forms is on the rise.

Turning Hollow Forms fills a gap in the contemporary world of "hollow" to show turners of all levels just how to create these works of art. You'll find in-depth, step-by-step coverage of turning techniques with over 450 clear photos, nearly 50 illustrations, and tons of expert instruction.

7 striking projects set out in a clear, step-by-step format and progressing in difficulty, you can quickly choose what suits you best. Projects include:

  • An open-necked vase
  • Two-part vase with inset neck
  • Squat hollow form with inset base
  • Two-part end-grain vase
  • End-grain hollow form produced from seasoned wood
  • Cross-grain lidded form with finial top
  • And a green hollow form
  • PLUS, discover the basics including health and safety, tools and equipment, and anatomy of forms

With this expert guide even the greenest beginner has everything needed to start. You will learn how to work with different types of wood, which tools to use, and how to apply basic techniques with confidence. You will also learn the basic principles of form, proportion, and design and how to apply this knowledge to your own work.
