This book review is from the May-June 2011 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag

Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw!
Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning by Doc Green

 

The tagline for the book “Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning” says, “Everything you need to know to secure wood on your lathe” and I don’t think that is an exaggeration.

What more can there be when you have section headings of:
  • Drive Centers and Live Centers
  • Faceplates and Screw Centers
  • Scroll Chucks
  • Handy Shopmade Chucks
  • Jam Chucks
  • Collets and Mandrels
  • Cole Jaws, Doughnut Chucks, Longworth Chucks
  • Vacuum and Vacuum Systems
  • Vacuum Chucks
  • Steady Rests
  • Turning Projects, and
  • Assembled Pieces

This book provides not only information on the above topics along with a multitude of photos but, also, is intermixed with projects such as turning an egg or a goblet with a lid. If you’re wondering about turning punky wood or attaching to end grain, well that information is in here too. Fantastic!

 

My Ratings of The Book
Layout and Appearance: Good balance of photos, how-to instructions, projects. Thumbs Up!
Instructions: Clear information and instructions Thumbs Up!
Projects Selection: An unexpected bonus in this book. Great.
Inspiration: Lots of information to open the door to creative turnings. Thumbs Up!
Overall: Thumbs Up!

Thanks for the review. Sounds like a book I’d enjoy getting into.
