Wood speaks to Dick Sing. With his skill as a woodturner, and his keen understanding of both the lathe and the wood, Dick has created a number of projects which offer something a little different. In this new book, he leads the turner through four projects which are easy enough for the beginner and fun enough for someone with experience. They also are very successful at craft shows. With step-by-step instructions illustrated with clear full-color photographs, he helps the turner discover the shape of a delightful little clock holder in a piece of wood and turn out a finished piece which would add character to any desk or table. He also provides instructions for a candle dish, a desk set with a base, a pen, and a letter opener, and a bookmark. Each project is covered completely, including numerous tips on style and finishing techniques, and a knowledge of wood, including some exotic woods which make striking finished projects.
A professional woodturner since 1989, Dick Sing resides in Illinois with his wife, Cindy. Along with teaching classes and one-on-one instruction, he provides demonstrations for businesses and clubs all across the country.
