Detailed Description

Turning Ornaments and Eggs. Author, Dick Sing

For the woodturner seeking projects that are a little more challenging, Dick Sing shares his techniques for creating awe-inspiring wooden ornaments and eggs. Step-by-step instructions and color photos guide you through the process of turning and hollowing out a globe for the incredibly light ornament, crafting a delicate "icicle" for the spindle - even adding a captive ring for that special finishing touch. Dick provides helpful tips for selecting the appropriate woods, using your tools to their best advantage, and fashioning some new tools from surprisingly ordinary materials.

Next he shows how to turn a wooden egg that will look like Mother Nature smiled upon it. One of nature's most perfect forms, the egg is also one of the most challenging, and Dick has spent many years perfecting his techniques for getting an egg to look like an egg. Here he outlines his methods for laying out the egg with a template, making a special chuck so you can finish both ends of the egg in the lathe, and using a homemade mandrel to create an egg that is also a kaleidoscope. Now you can attain eggs you are proud of! As a special bonus, Dick shows you how to recreate the jar he uses for his finish and how to use a wood burning pen to sign your completed projects.
